Photos: Smithsonian American History Technology

 While not all of these things are American, they did all make an impact on American culture. These old computers show that we have come a long way in our PCs.
And good thing the computer mouse got...better in later versions. At least you can understand why we call it a mouse with that "tail" in the first computer mouse's design.  
This is kind of hard to really see but you have many firsts in music players, video game handhelds, cellphones, and up on the top right is an early GPS.  
This is the Brown Box, it was the first home video game console. It was also Pong before Pong.
