Why they will hate it: It is dusty, it runs out quickly and it hurts when someone throws it at you. You can not write on any boards in the classroom as the chalk will slide.
What they want instead: Smart screens that sync everything that the teacher writes to their device.

Why they will hate it: They will not look cool with this backpack. Most of their friends will not know what Pacman is. Parents will look on fondly.
What they want instead: Spiderman -- or Angry Birds.

Flipover alarm clock
Why they will hate it: It will drive them crazy every minute as the time flips over to the next minute. 09:59 to 10:00 is a particularly loud change. It will make sure that they get up for school with its annoying buzz.
What they want instead: Longer school holidays so they can sleep in until noon.
