Merriam Webster define infrared rays as electromagnetic radiation with a longer wave length than light but shorter when compared to radio waves. The computer has a radio frequency receiver or a Bluetooth antenna which receives the data transmitted to it by the keyboard. When using the wireless keyboard, it ought to be placed in such a way that the receiver is within range of the infrared beam.

Without all the cabling there is less disarray and less time is consumed which would otherwise have been used in hooking up the various wires. An additional advantage is that with wireless keyboards, more than one user can access the same computer at a time. This also saves on time.
