Engelbart was at at the Stanford Research Institute (SRI) in Menlo Park where he initially worked for Hewitt Crane on devices. At SRI, Engelbart gradually proved himself with over a dozen patents to his name, including the first computer mouse. Engelbart later revealed that it was nicknamed the "mouse" because the tail came out the end. His group also called the on-screen cursor a "bug", but this term was not widely adopted. He never received any royalties for his mouse invention. During an interview, he says "SRI patented the mouse, but they really had no idea of its value. Some years later it was learned that they had licensed it to Apple for something like $40,000."
