6 Awesome Gadgets You Never Knew Existed | The Student Pocket Guide
by Charlotte Brimstone
Current students will know there were phases and crazes they went through, from smelly gel pens to Crazy Bones, Bay Bladez to Tamagotchis, and Pokemon cards to Top Trumps. As we have grown up, technology and gadgets have advanced with us. Today, we show off our new kindles, tablets, laptops and touch screen phones, but, have you seen these weird and wacky gadgets that could make you the coolest student in halls?
Info TS Elite Scanner
This is an ingenious gadget that every student should have. Used like a highlighter pen, the Info TS Elite Sanner saves the words, sentences, paragraphs or pages that you highlight. You can upload your scanned text to a computer, save and return to when desired. Say goodbye to library fees and searching for hours for that book you forgot to reference. This is a lifesaver for book-heavy courses!
‘What?’ I hear you ask. These cute little cat ears read your brain waves and react to your feelings. Wear these ears while you’re revising and as your brain is focused, relaxed or ‘in the zone’ they perk up, droop or twitch according to your state. Your friends can use these to indicate when to disturb you or not! We all know how irritating it is when you’re on a roll with an assignment then your friend barges in with their first world partner problems.
Bacon Alarm Clock
Alarm clocks nowadays are all about waking you up naturally with the use of light or natural sounds, but honestly, I can’t think of anything better to wake up to than the smell of fresh, sizzling bacon ready to munch. Mmm, bacon!
Don your tuxedo and pull yourself a shaken not stirred martini, 007. Fill up the cartridge with your chosen poison and pull the trigger. Aim is key here where the ‘spillage is lickage’ rule applies. This is great for a pre-drinks game to celebrate the end of exams!
Spy Camera T-shirt
Perfect for pranks. Sometimes it’s just too obvious when you hold your phone at a videoing angle, so why worry about giving the game away when the camera is in your t-shirt! It guarantees a good angle and you can snap away sneakily as well as remove the electronics to wash your new favourite shirt.
Exams are dawning and hours on end of revision is upon us all. There’s no time for bed so invest in an upright sleeper so those precious minutes you spend pulling on your pyjamas can be spent cramming in those last few notes. Go to sleep at your desk, wake up at your desk. No need to move, especially not with a bacon clock at your side.
There are so many crazy, wonderful gadgets being invented nowadays that can help you with your studies or enhance the wild student lifestyle.
