In many aspects, the A380 cockpit is not much different than the cockpit of the A340 series. Airbus designed the A380 cockpit so pilots rated to fly the A340 could transition to flying the A380 with training and simulator time measured only in the tens of hours.

Yup, it is a mouse...
Elsewhere on the website, the LCD screens have graphical representations of buttons drawn on it (a touch screen, I presume?)
This also got me thinking: What happens if the LCD screens have buttons such as flap settings and such -- and what happens if you can't control the flaps if the computers (forbid that from happening in real life) do not work anymore?
