Brian and I go back to college- or at least talk about gadgets that would be great in a dorm room.
* TOPICS - Gadgets for the Dorm Room or Small Apartment
Students all over the country are moving into their dorm rooms or small apartments this week. Here are some tech gadgets for those looking to save space in their dorm or apt.
1. Dyson Bladeless Fan www.dyson.com
Every student needs to bring along a fan.
10 inch table fan generates a constant flow of smooth air for personal cooling. It uses Air Multiplier™ technology to draw in and amplify air 15 times. There are no fast-spinning blades, so AM01 is safe and easy to clean. Airflow is fully adjustable, and there’s oscillation and touch tilt
2. Sonic Bomb Alarm Clock ($40)
Worried about missing early classes? With humongous sound and a vibrating bed-shaker device, this "Sonic Bomb" will wake you (and your roommate) up on time, guaranteed, no mater how hungover or tired you are.
3. Satechi Smart LED Desk Lamp ($99)
When you pull an all-nighter because procrastinating seemed like a good idea at the time, a dependable desk lamp is a necessity. This one from Satechi has a built-in USB charger, dimmer touch controls and a long-lasting LED bulb, plus a timer so -- even if you fall asleep in your textbook -- you'll at least save energy.
4 Sticky Door Mat $50-60
These unique mats are now available to protect many types of carpeted or hard surface floors in the home. Tracked in dirt on the shoes of family members or guests will no longer be a problem. Floors will stay cleaner and you won't have to say, “please wipe your feet” or “please take off your shoes”.
Sticky Mats come in different sizes and shapes, colors and designs.
With a Sticky Mat at the doorway, the dirt and grime gets automatically stuck to the mat. Kids love to see the footprints magically left behind on the mat
