Input and output hardware

Ever wondered how to get data in and out of your computer?

Well you have two types of devices for this, input and output. Here are some examples of these:


Input: keyboard,mouse,webcam

Output:head phones, speakers, monitor


Some devices are special because they are input and output devices for example a printer. A printer has a scanner (input) and the actual printer (output)
