Last minute gifts for the student in your life

Last minute gifts for the student in your life

Summary: Reflecting on my time at University, there are certain gadgets that I would have dearly loved to own for their own sake, or would have been downright useful. Here is a collection of ten gifts to help your student survive University.

  • I own one. It runs. It beeps. It gets out of your clutches on the bed stand to force you to wake up and chase it.

    It is one of the most annoying alarm clocks in existence (not that any alarm clock is pleasant), but it works.

    The 'Clocky' comes with wheel and as soon as the alarm goes off, it takes off and is able to jump from a height of three feet.

    For the student who finds it hard to get out of bed and attend their lecture after that heavy night, this alarm clock may come in handy.

  • IRISnotes is a digital pen and mobile note taker.

    It captures handwritten notes and drawings -- then you are able to edit, save and export your work. Apparently, the pen also allows you to quickly convert your writing in to editable text in different languages.

    Perhaps it will save you some time on writing up your exam notes, or come in handy for those who write better by hand than typing straight on to a computer.

    I would like to see this mythical creature. The only way I can see this being true is if you're still hunt & pecking.

    And on that note, if you're allowed a computer in class, I'd go for it and Word over a dictaphone. I used one in my ethics class, and honestly, it's more hassle than it's worth.
