The VisiOn mouse is Mouse Systems OEM mouse. VisiCcorp merits a place in mouse history because of its menu software that made use of a mouse. In October of 1893 VisiCorp released its "integrated environment," a graphical user interface (GUI) for the PC, for which Mouse System produce a branded mouse mouse. The software was more business than graphically oriented. It included a spreadsheet, graph, word processor and database.
This is a Mouse Systems model M-1 mouse, yellowed a bit from pearl white, with two angled oblong holes on the bottom for the LEDs. The power adapter is gone, but it is the same as the 5V power supply on the black M-1 mouse. Only a couple of inches of the black cord and the jack stick out of the interface box with RJ11 ports on the other side, one for the mouse and the other for the line to the computer with its DB-25 holes plug. Two long tan buttons are labeled (left) SELECT and (right) SCROLL.

VisiCorp Model IB-1 9VDC 200mA
The label on the back of the mouse:
VisiOn Model: M1 Serial: 000641 FCC ID: CWE7VYI
The computer running this mouse and software required a whopping 512K of RAM and a hard disk, a rather rare component at that time.
To remind the user what the two buttons were for, the left one was labeled SELECT and the right one SCROLL.
The mouse would have originally included:
The reflective grid on the desk pad was essential to orient the mouse X and Y movement. The VisiOn M-1 mouse came with a 9" x 11" branded pad with a grid of about two dozen lines per inch, number 400207-176 REV 5.
