In computer hardware, headless refers to a server with no monitor, graphics card, or keyboard attached. Interaction with it depends on the use of a network connection, serial communications, or the use of a "crash cart."
Headless is also the term used for describing a person or animal who has no head whether through deformity or removal. Because virtually all living organisms require their brain to carry out basic functions, there are few non-fictitious examples of living organisms lacking heads.
