JOYSTICK
A joystick is used to move the cursor from place
to place, and to click on various items in
programs. They input directional data like a
mouse but work by switches being closed as the
joystick is moved left or right and up or down. It
consists of a stick that pivots on a base and
reports its angle or direction to the device it is
controlling. A joystick is used mostly for
computer games.

A scanner is used to copy pictures or
other things and save them as files on
the computer. A light moves slowly
over the surface of the picture or
object to be scanned. The colours of
the reflected light are detected and
digitised to build up a digital image.
A TRACK BALL is used in the same
way as a mouse but it is useful where
desk space is limited. It is like an
upside down mouse because the user
rotates the ball and the main body
part stays still. It has buttons like a
standard mouse.
A Spaceball provides 6 degrees of
freedom. Strain gauge measures the
amount of pressure applied to the
spaceball to provide input for spatial
positioning and orientation as the ball
is pushed or pulled in varies
directions.
