Scan originally appeared in Wired 03.11, November 1995.
"It fits the way I work. Which is shirtless. Since, unlike my mouse, my shirts need cleaning and you caught me at a really awkward moment, caressing my trackball."
Check the name on this dude – "Barrimore Zarsprach, automotive designer". Riiight – yet another automotive designer slash male model – I know so many of those!
The mouse itself is definitely not fake, though. In fact, it’s one of the more impressive products I’ve come across. Launched in 1995, the Logitech Trackman Marble is still alive and kicking today, although it’s been renamed Trackman Wheel.
The groundbreaking design got a following that lives on to this day. In fact, I spotted one on my colleagues desk. Quite rare he works without a shirt on, though...
