Thanks to a lack of parking and tight class schedules, many students spend all day on campus forcing them to drag all of their supplies around campus all day. Cocoon’s new Grid-It! Wrap can make life a lot easier. The Grid-It! Wrap is a neoprene notebook and tablet wrap. Slide your mobile device into Wrap’s cushioned back pocket and flip down the cover. The wrap features the Grid-it!, which is a woven elastic object retention system for gadget organization. If that wasn’t enough, the back of the Grid-It! doubles as a mouse pad.
With the iPhone 5 creeping its way into the market, the iPhone 4 is dropping in price; a good thing for college budgets. That being said, between the partying, the drinking and the running around campus, your phone is often in danger of breaking and dying. Exogear’s iPhone 4 battery case is a perfect solution to both hazards. The case is a sleek protective exoskeleton outfitted with a rechargeable external battery to give your iPhone extra power when needed. The lithium-ion polymer battery inside doubles the battery life of your phone. Also, the polycarbonate hard shell is treated with a rubberized coating for better protection and grip. With this case, rather than spending all your financial aid on a new phone every four months, you can have more money for beer!
With a seemingly annual rise in tuition rates, your parents are continuously dishing out more and more cash for your education, or should I say personal liberation. Show them how little you care with a Prankpack fake box. The boxes’ designs appear to contain ridiculous products from clueless companies, such as the Beerbeard, the PetPetter or the Motorized Rolling Pin, but inside you can stash the real gift. Upon reception, they’ll think you sent them some TV hocked, cheap gift, but when they open it and see the real present, they’ll think, “Hey, maybe I didn’t raise a total jackass of a kid!”$8 www.prankpack.com
With a name like Hercules, one would suspect a product that packs a punch. The new Hercules-XP S101 Speakers do just that, but more like a 1980’s Mike Tyson punch! Total power clocks in at 101 watts with a peak power of 202 watts. The conveniently sized speakers are magnetically shielded so they won’t disturb your surroundings. The speakers’ satellite bottoms, as well as the top of the subwoofer, are made from metal alloy. The subwoofer has a driver on the front and two passive woofers on the sides. In the pursuit of overall laziness, the speakers also connect to a multifunctional remote control with a pulse switch and backlighting. Hercules Speakers will be perfect for disturbing quiet neighbors with thin walls! $195 www.hercules.com
With so many available mobile devices, wandering around campus is way more interesting than it used to be. Where people-watching was the top way to pass time, now a limitless world of sound and visuals rest in the palm of your hand. With Nox Audio’s Scout Headset, you can take advantage of that world with the highest quality. The balanced armature technology creates thick, succinct bass, full and balanced mids and clear, crisp-sounding highs. The Scout is awesome for portable gaming, especially for major explosions, listening to music, watching movies and managing calls. The compact play/pause button lets you receive and end calls with a single touch. The in-line microphone provides you with high fidelity voice recognition. The flat cables are tangle resistant and silicon earbuds fit securely in ear canals, which makes it perfect for on-the-go people. $79.99 www.nox-audio.com
As computers further in advancement, it would appear that the mouse has been forgotten since the introduction of the optical, wireless mouse. But it is finally catching up with the rest of the world. The Chameleon X-1, at first glance, appears
to be normal, but when you turn it over, it transforms into a game pad… that’s right, a game pad! It just makes sense that these two devices would be combined. As a game pad, you can still control the mouse with one of the analog sticks and the left and right click buttons, eliminating the need of a surface. This makes it perfect for a home theater or a power point presentation. The pad has 16 high-grade buttons, two analog sticks and force feedback rumble. $55
