A input device is something used to enter information to a processor unit. Examples of input devices are keyboard, mouse, joystick etc. These devices are supplying signals to the processor and processor responds according to the signals, may print out or show something on screen. The input device may sometime provide data input, as you see in supplying data to a certain C program. Or it can be used to give a control signal e.g. when you press alt+f4 the selected application get closed.
