Printers / Scanners
Basic printers offer the ability to obtain a hard copy on paper of anything displayed on your screen, and can be categorised into two areas - impact (dot-matrix) and non-impact (inkjet, laser). 3D printers have become more popular recently, and they enable you to print complex 3D shapes from plans. For example, you can now 3D print models, prototypes and parts, and with the cost coming down, hobby 3D printing is becoming a bigger industry.
Otherwise known as an image-scanner, these flat bed scanners optically scan anything placed on the flat glass and convert this into a digital image. Using software on your computer, the scanned image can then be edited as required and saved in the required format. Connectivity is usually via USB. Advanced features to look out for include the ability to scan photo negatives.
Universal Serial Bus (USB) is a serial bus standard to connect devices to a host computer.
