A CPU is a central processing unit. It is neither an input nor an output device, but it is usually connected to both kinds of devices. An input device would be a keyboard or a mouse. And output device would be a printer, a hard or floppy drive, or a memory chip in a thumb drive.
Its more of an bidirectional device......it shows u the output graphic data as well as helps u select ur option.........
Input Devices Before computers, the phrase "input device" probably was not on the tip of anyone's tongue. It has a dry and impersonal sound, sorta technical - rather like computer talk, don't you think? The phrase is easy to define because a "device" is an instrument that performs a simple task. "In…put" is also easy - something put into a system. So in the technology world... an input device is any tool that feeds data into a computer. For example, a keyboard is an input device, whereas a display monitor is an output device. Mice, trackballs, and light pens are all input devices. Isn't it amusing that under the dry title of "input devices," we get such fun words as mice, joystick, trackball, touch pad, light pen, and puck? Keyboards The input of information into your computer is generally done through your keyboard and your mouse or mouse substitute. The keyboard has the distinction of being the standard input device. The variety of keyboards is almost staggering. No one has to stick with the standard keyboard that comes with the computer. Ergonomically designed keyboards often have unusual sculpted or contoured shapes and a space age look. These keyboards are designed to help avoid repetitive stress injury to the wrists. Some of these keyboards come with foot pedals to spread the work to other limbs. Some keyboards are even designed to take advantage of the strength in the thumbs. Other keyboards come with extra large keys to help users with sight or hand coordination problems. Wireless keyboards can offer the freedom from being tethered to the computer. In keyboards, if you shop around, you will find that there really is something for everyone. Your choice of keyboard, like your choice of any input device, is a very personal matter. If only we could test each type of keyboard or mouse for an extended period of time before buying one, but that just doesn't happen in today's marketplace. Computer users should research the many different products offered. Make sure you know if and how you can customize the input device for your own use. Only you can decide which kind of device is most comfortable for you. And that applies to all input devices. Mice The mouse is recognized as one of the great breakthroughs in computer ergonomics because it frees the user from having to exclusively use the keyboard. If you think the variety of keyboards is staggering, then you will think the variety of mice has reached the epidemic stage. This clever little device that controls the movement of the cursor or pointer on a display screen was named for its shape, which looks a bit like a mouse. The connecting wire can be viewed as the mouse's tail, and mice certainly scurry along a surface, don't they? Mice contain at least one button and sometimes as many as three, which can be programmed for different functions. A popular type of mouse has a wheel between two of the buttons that can be used to easily scroll through long documents. This wheel can add ease of use to your computing as well as Web browsing. Mice come in three basic types: mechanical, optomechanical, and optical. The basic design is the mechanical mouse with a rubber or metal ball on its underside that rolls in all directions. The cursor on the screen is moved as the mechanical sensors within the mouse detect the rolling ball's direction. The optomechanical mouse uses optical sensors to detect motion of the ball. The fully optical mouse uses lasers to detect the mouse's movement. Optical mice have no mechanical moving parts, and no mouse pads are required. Optical models are the fastest and most precise mice. Most have a wonderful red glow on the bottom giving the mouse a subtle high tech look. Another design breakthrough in mice is the cordless mouse, which no longer has to be physically connected to the computer. Infrared or radio waves allow this little rodent to communicate with the computer. Both optical and cordless mice are more expensive than other mice, but you may find them a worthy investment. Mouse Substitutes Computer mice are wonderful little creatures, but there are also many mouse substitutes. These devices perform the same functions of the mouse, but in different ways. Here are a few examples: Trackballs are a mouse variation, essentially a mouse lying on its back. Because the device is stationary, it does not require as much space on your desktop. The ball moves as you rotate it with your thumb, your fingers, or the palm of your hand; this saves wrist fatigue and reduces hand and arm movement. Trackballs are especially popular with those experiencing problems with arthritic hands. Trackballs come in various sizes and shapes. Light Pens let you move the pointer and select items on the display screen by directly pointing to the objects on the screen with the pen. Touch Screens allow you to use your finger to touch the screen and choose objects. A special computer monitor or a monitor fitted with special hardware is necessary to provide touch screen capabilities. Portable units such as laptops and notebook computers introduced us to Pointing Sticks and Touch Pads . Pointing sticks are the short red sticks that are positioned in the middle of the keyboard on some laptop computers. These devices are pressure-and-direction sensitive, so the cursor moves in the direction that the pointer is pressed; the cursor moves faster when more pressure is applied. Touch pads can be found in both laptops and desktop computers. They can also be purchased as an add-on device that plugs into the computer like a mouse. By moving and tapping your finger on the pad, you can relocate the pointer on the display screen and simulate a mouse click. Touch pads can be valuable for computer users dealing with hand coordination problems. If you use a digitizing tablet, you know what a Puck is. It is the pointing device that lets you enter drawings and sketches into your computer. The puck has a window with cross hairs for pinpoint placement; it can have as many as sixteen buttons. Along the same line is a Graphic Tablet or Drawing Tablet . These digitizers or graphic tablets are pressure-sensitive data input devices that respond to a user's movement of a pen, mouse, or other device to select a graphic image. These are most often used for complex drawing and computer-aided design programs. Believe it or not, a Microphone can also serve as an input device. Using the microphone along with speech recognition software can offer a completely new approach to inputting information into your computer. Speech recognition programs, although not yet completely exact, have made great strides in accuracy as well as ease of use. The voice-in or speech recognition approach can almost fully replace the keyboard and mouse. Speech recognition can now open the computer world to those who may have been restricted due to a physical handicap. It can also be a boon for those who have never learned to type. Input devices have been specifically designed as Devices for the Handicapped. Many special devices have been created to assist the handicapped, including Braille keyboards and long pointing sticks. These unique devices further customize the method of inputting information into the computer, adapting to the needs of those with physical restrictions. A lever that moves in all directions and controls the movement of a pointer is called a Joystick . With a joystick, the pointer continues to move in the direction the stick is pointing. Return the joystick to its upright position and the movement stops. Most joysticks have two buttons or triggers that come in handy for computer games, the most popular use of joysticks. Joysticks are not mouse substitutes but rather add gaming functionality to the computer. Apple Input Devices There are two halves in mouse world - PC mice and Mac mice. The Mac mouse, as shipped from Apple, will have only one button. Now, however, a wide variety of Macintosh input devices are available including some Mac mice that come with accompanying software to offer scroll and multi-button features. Other input devices, such as drawing tablets, trackballs, and touch pads are also available in Macintosh versions. Peripheral Devices Besides keyboards and mice, there are other types of hardware classified as input devices. Scanners are peripheral products that input information in your computer. When you think of it, even the grocery store bar code scanners read imprinted code and transfer it to the store's computerized cash registers. Another product exploding in popularity is really an input device. Do you think of your Digital Camera as an input device? Well, it is. A digital camera stores images digitally rather than recording them on film. Once a picture has been taken, it can be input or downloaded to your computer where it is stored for later use. The concept is the same whether you take a film photo and then use your scanner as an input device or take a photo with your digital camera and use the camera itself as an input device. In both cases, the image is input into the computer. Software Many of the useful and fun devices on the market today come with their own software, which can be as important as the hardware when deciding what works for you. Use the software to customize your input device by changing the tracking and double-click speed. Customization adds enormous functionality, can enhance your productivity, and can give you added comfort. Most devices with more than one button will let you assign functions beyond a simple click. The Power of the Mind When you stop to think about it, there is a proliferation of input devices. And the world of technology is not finished yet. Did you know researchers at Brown University have successfully harnessed the power of a monkey's brain to control the movement of a cursor on a computer screen? Perfecting the link between mind and computers may enable those who cannot move or speak to communicate with the world. The thought-control concept is now poised to open the world to thousands who are trapped or limited by their own bodies. Such a successful experiment could pave the way to a future when the paralyzed may communicate, send e-mail, write letters, surf the Web, and command computer resources simply by thinking about them. That's the ultimate in input devices. Mouse,Keyboard & Joystick. ( Full Answer )

An input device is any piece of hardware that allows data (in any form) into a computer: a keyboard, a camera, a scanner are all in put devices. (input = put in) An output device is any piece of hardware that allow users (us) to either see or remove data from a computer: monitors and printers a…re out put devices. (output = put out) ( Full Answer )
It doesn't put anything out that's why. It's a tool used from outside the computer so it's inputing information. The information is movement and directly effects the cursor on your screen
A microphone is (put simply) a magnet inside a coil of wire. When the noise vibrations hit the magnet it moves creating an electronic field around the wire. That electricity goes in to your computer. A microphone is an input device.
outputs are storage devices but inputs are not. inputs sends things into the computer but outputs send things out. input devices are keyboard ,scanner, web cam and mouse. output devices include monitor, printer and speaker
Input devices can be items such as ; Mice,Keyboards,Microphone,scanner etc. Output devies are; Printer,Speakers,VGA(monitor) etc.
I'm not sure what you mean. As far as I am aware, there exists an input for every output, and vise versa. Speakers Microphone Monitor Scanner Printer Digitizer Text Keyboard Storage External storage (CDs, DVDs, BDs, SDs, CFs, FDs, etc.)
Microsoft DirectInput 5.0 and later versions communicate directly with the HID class driver. Vendor-supplied function drivers are not required to support DirectInput applications that access HIDClass devices. In addition, DirectInput applications do not have to interface directly with a HIDClass dev…ice to benefit from the full functionality of the device. DirectInput 7.0 and later versions support physical input devices (PIDs), as defined by the USB HID Standard. Applications that use only the Microsoft Windows multimedia DLL ( winmm.dll ) can indirectly access HID joysticks because winmm.dll accesses joysticks through DirectInput COM interfaces. The physical attachment of a joystick is transparent to a Windows multimedia application. The Microsoft Win32 subsystem DLLs ( user32.dll in Windows 2000 and later versions, and user.dll in Windows Me) access keyboard and mouse class devices through the drivers for non-HIDClass keyboard and mouse devices.

A diagram for input and output is typically shaped like a diamond.On one end you have the input, then arrows show where that inputgoes; this is typically to multiple locations. The arrows will thenshow how the information arrives at the output destination.
A monitor is a ouput device. If it is a touch monitor its an input output device :-) !
...The door? The refrigerator/freezer (though it requires a manual interface, in which you take the food out of the freezer and put it in the microwave by hand). Also, the buttons on a microwave might be considered an input device. There is no microwave input device in terms of home computers (wi…th the possible exception of a hack that allowed you to control it via USB or something, but I've never heard of that being done). A cell phone or Blue Tooth device might be considered a "microwave device," or maybe a 3G or 4G device such as an adapter or hub. That frequency range of radio waves is considered microwave energy.

ROM can refer to many things. For example, the full name for a CD is a CD-ROM which stands for compact disc, read-only memory. So it acts as a storage device, and in some mind sets, could be considered input to the computer. In digital circuits a ROM is often used as a look up table type circuit an…d is generally something that has several inputs, performs logical operations on those inputs, and outputs the corresponding value(s). So, the answer to your question? It depends on what you're actually talking about, but it would most easily be defined as neither in the normal sense of input and output devices for a computer. You'll have to define what you are referring to by ROM. ( Full Answer )
An input device could be a memory stick and an output device can be a keyboard

The Device that helps us to access or enter Data/Information to the computer, is called a Input Device. The Device that helps us to get result or response from the computer, is called a Output Device.
Most keyboards are mainly input. Some have lights to tell if caps lock, num lock, or scroll lock is on. Some of the fancier ones have screens in each of the keys, but the average keyboard is an input device
An input device is a device that is connected to a computer in order to input data. An example would be a keyboard, mouse, joystick, scanner, etc.
Types of devices that are not Plug & Play (plugging in a device without installing software for it first) compatible. Usually a outdated device.
A peripheral is a device attached to a host computer but not part of it, and is more or less dependent on the host. It expands the host's capabilities, but does not form part of the corecomputer architecture. Examples are computer printers, image scanners, tape drives, microphones, loudspeakers, w…ebcams, and digital cameras. ( Full Answer )
It's input I think, not that sure, but I just know that it reads data from a disc and then views them onto the computer screen. :)
An input device is something that brings data IN to something. An output device is something that carries data OUT from something. So, to put this visually: input -> processor -> output
an input is a command usually entered by the user to ask the computer to perform some tasks. input device: keyboard, scanner, mouse, microphone, e . t . c
An input device is anything which you plug into your computer that sends information to it such as: Keyboard, Mouse, joystick.
It is a output device. Keyboard is an input because you use it to put information in the PC. LCD which is the screen out information. Answer 2 . An LCD device is not innately an input nor an output, it is just another transducer device, in this case converting electrical signals to light signals.… It would usually be used as an output, but could be used as an input for OCR (optical character recognition).

Input devices are devices that you plug into your computer to send it commands. A mouse, keyboard, and disc drive are all input devices.
A scanner is a input device because you are inputting something into a computer system, in this case paper/document.
Microphone is a input device because it's plugged in computer. All devices that you plug in computer are input devices.
yes..yes a voice recording device takes voice as input and encode the voice into specific format that can be stored in a computer..so a voice recording device is an input device
If you are talking about computers there are a number (basicallyanything that collects data): Keyboard Mouse Digitizer Scanner A camera could also be considered an imput device
A plotter is a printer. And printers are both output and input devices,because you input data in it and revive data from it. so its an input and output device.
A palmtop can be considered to be a host. It can be both input or output.
In relation to computers, there are many devices that can beconsidered input/output devices: Input: Mouse Keyboard Graphics Tablet Microphone Scanner Output: Monitor Speaker Printer Also, a touchscreen monitor can be considered both an input andoutput device.
If they are for hearing then its output device as they are notputting anything in to the computer, if they have a microphoneattached as well then they are input/output (i.e. microphone isinput, speakers are output)
It depends on the construction. A 'standard' LCD display is anoutput device only. However - if it's a 'touch-sensitive' screen -it's both an input and an output device.
It depends on the construction. A 'standard' monitor is simply anoutput device... however - a 'touch-sensitive' monitor is also aninput device.
Cell phones have both input and output functionality, like beingable to speak into and hear out of or being able to type text andsee it on the screen.
Typical output devices in a computer system are the monitor, speakers and the printer. Somedevices that perform both input AND output operations are referredto as I/O (input/output) devices and their operations are calledI/O operations. Examples of common input and output components are disk drive…s and modems. ( Full Answer )
