Input Device

Definition - What does Input Device mean?

An input device is a hardware or peripheral device used to send data to a computer. An input device allows users to communicate and feed instructions and data to computers for processing, display, storage and/or transmission.

Techopedia explains Input Device

Because input devices are geared toward user-computer interaction, they are used to transform user actions or commands into electronic signals that are understood by computers.

Examples of input devices include:

  • Keyboards: Allow users to input data
  • Pointing devices and game controllers: Allow users to direct application software and devices used to capture audio and video, like cameras and microphones.
Input also may come from other computers via input/output (I/O) devices, like network adapters and Bluetooth ports.
