Back to School Gadgets

I always got bored with Back to School Segments. So, when I got to take matters into my own hands I promised I would try to make them wacky yet practical at the same time. Take a look at a few we showcased on CNN this evening.

Skull Alarm Clock
Brand new gadget in the lineup. Great for the early classes that are impossible to wake up for. The Skull has bright red flashing eye sockets and alert lites and the Bone Crusher bed shaker that you put between the mattress and the box spring. If that doesn’t wake you up 113 decibels of terrifying screaming will. (An average alarm clock has 80dcb)

Dragon Dictation
FREE app– records everything you say and converts it into text so you can copy it and put it into email or notes. Up to 5x faster than using a keyboard. This is going to save you a ton of time eliminating having to type on a smartphone or iPad (devices that dont have the best keypads). But know that there is also software available for any computer (for $). A lot of schools are using this especially with kids that have writing set backs. Its just a more natural way to communicate. Its REALLY accurate!

Fridge Locker
The perfect solution for roommates that steal food. The fridge locker is pretty self explanatory has a combination lock and ventilation so you can ensure everything stays put and everyone stays locked out especially those energy drinks that are pricey when you're in college!
