Input Devices

Keyboard and MouseInput devices allow you to put information into your computer and tell it what to do. The two main computer input devices are the keyboard and the mouse.

Computer Joystick

A joystick is also an input device. It controls actions in a computer game. It works like a mouse. When you move the joystick to the left, the character will move left, if you move it down the character will move backwards. Joysticks have buttons — for firing, or accessing menus (used to help you perform tasks on your computer). These work exactly like a mouse or a keyboard giving instructions in a game program.
