Are you struggling to find the perfect gift for your graduate? Technology seems to be the way to go these days. If you are tired of the ordinary, a bit playful, and enjoy giving unique and a bit unexpected gifts, then I have a few ideas for you.
One interesting product is the futuristic Blade Runner Style LED Umbrella from thinkgeek.com. The umbrella itself is black but the shaft is a LED light. It comes in either white or blue, though at this time only blue is available. It will light up the path of your graduate as he walks in the rain and will make him more visible to drivers and other pedestrians. At only $24.99, it is affordable and cool.
Another find is the H20 Water Powered Shower Radio , available at gizoo.co.uk for only £ 34.99. It connects to a water hose and the running water micro-turbine powered generator that charges the internal rechargeable batter that actually runs the radio even after the water is turned off. It is simple and easy to install. It is ecologically-friendly and will help reduce your graduate’s carbon footprint. He will be able to listen to news and radio even while in the shower.
A third idea is the Spy Camera Pen for your James Bond type graduate. This can be bought from thegadgetstore.ie for the low price of £ 49.95. It is real working pen that is capable of recording both in full-color video and sound. It is discreet and perfect for covert operations, with a 2 gig memory that will store as much as 15 hours of raw footage. Your graduate can take it with him in his pocket to secretly record while on covert missions. He could alternatively place it in a safe location to record what’s happening while he is away.
One very cool gift is the Mindflex by Mattel. This can be purchased at Amazon.com. It allows you to play at telekinesis (moving objects with only the power of your mind) games. It is made for kids ages 8 to 11 years old, but each of us is a kid at heart. This game helps the player to gain skills in focus and concentration and also helps him to learn how to relax his mind. When he does it right, the ball rises in the air or descends. He can even make the ball move through an obstacle course. He can compete with up to three other players for the win. This is a fun and addictive game. It requires four C batteries for the console and three AAA batteries for the headset. The batteries not included. It only costs $55.55 and can also be purchased at Walmart.
ThinkGeek.com brings us the Star Trek USB Communicator. This is a perfect gift for the graduate who is a bit of a trekker at heart. It works with Skype and other IM programs such as MSN, AIM, iChat, and others. It comes with built-in speakers and 21 sound effect. The USB cable length is 6 feet. It is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, and Mac OS X 10.5 operating systems. It is currently on sale for only $34.99.
Well, here you have 5 great technological gift ideas for your graduate $100. I am sure one of them would be perfect choice for your graduate.
