Converter Solar Backpack – $129.00 [link]
You know those Fjällräven Kånken backpacks that every college girl seems to have these days? They run about $80. If you can drop $80 for a fabric backpack, you can drop $129 for an ultra-cool and practical solar-charging backpack that lasts years. Voltaic System’s Converter Solar Backpack is made of recycled plastic bottles and has an emphasis on sustainability while also providing relatively efficient charging time.
Havit Laptop Cooler Cooling Pad – $24.99 [link]
Tired of your laptop burning the hell out of your legs while typing up that history paper in bed at 3 a.m.? Besides running Disk Cleanup and updating your OS already, you can invest in a laptop cooler. The Havit HV-F2056 Cooling Pad will keep you burn-free and your computer’s components will thank you for reducing the amount of heat-caused wear inflicted on them. The Havit comes in two colors: red and blue. No, they aren’t fighting each other.
Aegir Smartpen – $99.95 [link]
Imagine never having to type up your notes after taking them in class by hand. Now your wish can come true with the aid of the Aegir Smartpen from LiveScribe. The Aegir can record audio for lectures, plus it has a Bluetooth feature that can connect live to a smart device. No smart device to connect to during class? No problem. The Aegir can store up to 1,200 pages of writing in its memory before syncing. It can also transcribe in real-time in up to 22 languages.

The future is here with the Laser Projection Keyboard by AGS Design. It’s Bluetooth-compatible and works with smartphones, tablets, and laptops. The projector runs on rechargeable batteries and as long as you don’t type too quickly it works perfectly. This is what you should whip out in the middle of class to look super extra—don’t forget your Matrix sunglasses and AirPods.
