Jump to user comments
hardware Any hardware component that allows a user to input
spatial data to a computer. CAD systems and Graphical UserInterfaces (GUI) allow the user to control and provide data
to the computer using physical "gestures" - point, click,
and drag - typically by moving a hand-held mouse across
the surface of the physical desktop and activating switches on
the mouse. Movements of the pointing device are echoed on a
graphical representation of a desktop on the screen by
movements of the mouse pointer and other visual changes.
