Flashcard Content Overview

'You know what we're doing? We're interfacing.' - Ross Geller, Friends.

Your whole world is about to become connected in ways that you did not even understand. You think a mouse is the only way to send commands to a computer? Wait until you learn about the touch interface devices. Are you a graphic designer? If you are, maybe you will recognize a hardware piece in this flashcard set. Like any logical problem, there are numerous ways to tackle an issue, and like those problems, there are as many ways to interface with a computer.

Think outside the safety box of your keyboard and prepare to enter a world of unparalleled knowledge and exciting new concepts. Computers are not just for the business savvy but also for the more casual internet surfer, the graphics designer, and even the casual to heavy gamers. Each of these types has their 'weapon' of choice when interfacing with computers, and each of those devices is specific to those needs.

Did you know that paralyzed people can use voice chat microphones to tell the computer what to do? Seems very Star Trek does it not?

Take this new leap, as your entrance to the new digital age has only just begun.

Are you ready to begin?
