Resource summary

  1. Input
    1. Ipad
      1. Keyboard
        1. Webcam: Its just like a camera except that it has even smaller microscopic lenses that project a light out either in in real time or in the past (video chat).
          1. Controller (Xbox or PS4): The controller is the primary user interface for the PlayStation,
            1. Mouse: Computer mouses use a light source to guide the arrow on the computer and programmes it to either click or hold a certain tab or link (websites).

                                      1. ZIP cards
                                        1. Media Devices
                                        2. Output
                                          1. Touch-screen platform: A special chip is placed inside of the platform which figures out the coordinates on where you touched the screen.
                                            1. Speaker: A quick current of fluctuating electricity is pumped into an electromagnet which is then pushed through a coil and comes out in sound-waves through a cone.
                                              1. Calculator: An encoder processes a number-when pressed- and then shows that number or symbol onto the the small screen. There is a small device inside the calculator which is called a transistor. this makes a certain formula come out as an answer(eg 4*5=20).
                                                1. Printer: wirelessly connected to a PC or more PCs
                                                  1. Computer Screen: Huge pixel waves surf through a 'Cathode Ray Tube' (CRT) which is then neatly positioned on billions of small LCD caps.
                                                    1. Headphones/earphones: Stereo wires transport the required sounds to both speakers (the ear buds) from the computer, phone and TV.
                                                      1. Projector: A very bright light shines into a big LCD cap which comes out as an enlarged image or video
                                                        1. TV: Millions of tiny bright dots,which are called pixels, are fused together through millions of small hexagonal lenses which then make a full image.
