embedded computers

computers built in to devices that are traditionally not viewed as containing computers and where the computer is often viewed as an invisible component. Examples of places embedded computers might be found include cars, microwaves, toasters, refrigerators, and showers. Embedded systems pose unique design challenges because users interact with these systems in very different ways than traditional desktop operating systems, often expecting an interaction style appropriate to the unique task domain and application of the system.
