University Mouse began when co-founders, Paul Walton and Jason Miller made a trip to their local campus bookstore. They noticed that of all the merchandise available for purchase, there was no computer mouse with the school's logo on it. A strange thing to notice, but they did, nonetheless. Being strapping and resourceful young men, they went home that night and browsed the internet over a couple of cold beers only to find that it seemed nobody was offering such a product. A few beers later, they decided this was an opportunity they just couldn't pass up. Soon, they had tracked down manufacturers and found out what it would take to license University logos for use on computer mice. Quickly, the two set up their new business, Wavetronix.
