    Unless you're Neo and jacking directly into the net, you're using a computer.

    If you're looking for examples, then one would be a hedge trimmer. For safety they often have two switches. You need to work them with your left AND right hands together. Each, on its own, will do nothing.

    Another example would be a basement where one switch in the basement turns on/off the light. Another switch upstairs turns on/off that same light. This is an implication of "OR" logic because you can operate the light via the downstairs switch OR the upstairs switch.

    Mmmm... Thats going to be XOR i believe. Bvecause if you flip both switches up or down the light will stay in the same state normally.

    1) Two bouttons to activate the same doorbell.

    Whether you push the button at the front door OR the one at the garage, the doorbell will ring.

    2) Eight smoke sensors at the first floor activating one signal (8-inputs OR)

    Another eight sensors at the second floor activating another signal (8-inputs OR)

    1st OR 2nd floor signals turn a light on in the pannel. (2-inputs OR)

    That signal AND "bells on" switch on, sound a bell. (2-inputs AND)

    BTW, have found one by yourself? It would be nice to hear that for a change...

    Buena suerte.
