was pretty cool, except he left thousands of dollars
worth of equipment behind when he left.
But his second idea
To go with their battery powered short throw projector
and have a look at five handy tech items for college dorm life
had an even bigger problem…. (Record Scratch)
Linus has never lived in a dorm!!!
So here I go.
♪ (LTT theme music) ♪
Lets start with item number one,
the Bose QC35 Wireless Headphones.
One of the first things you will notice about dorm life
is the incredibly thin walls
and your neighbors,
in every direction are probably enjoying their first taste of life out from their mom and dad’s roof.
Eavesdropping on conversations may be fun the first few days, and the rabbits next door could be interesting for a bit too. I am not judging.
But after a couple weeks you are probably just gonna want some quiet time to yourself.
The noise cancellation on the QC35 is nothing short of amazing! They are very comfortable, and with ample padding for long studying sessions.
And it lasts the whole time too with Bose bose-ting 20 hours of active listening on a single charge. Sorry for that pun…
This isn’t the first in the QC lineup, Bose has been doing this whole quiet comfort thing for awhile now, and it isn’t likely to come to a surprise to owners of the QC15 or the QC25, but the bottom line is QC35s are expensive, but undeniable awesome.
Moving on to number 2!
The Google Chromecast, now I am probably preaching to the choir here, but if you had to leave the family one at home, now might be a great time to pickup either the updated gen 2 model or even the brand new 4k model!
Us millennials love to show each other internet memes, and random videos. This is just the fact of life,
and there is no easier way to do this wirelessly then with a Chromecast.
Its light enough to hang out of your HDMI port on your display, without harming it, and with just a Micro USB plug required for power,
Its both easy to setup, and easy to use.
It works with Android 4.1 or higher, iOS 8.0 or higher, Mac OS 10.9 or higher and Windows 7 or higher!
So, regardless of your tech budget,
You’re probably covered.
Now you just need something to plug it into right?
Which brings us to item number 3 – the LG PH 450 UG,
An ultra short-throw LED projector
with an embedded battery
But Luke!? Why would you want a portable projector, you’re in a dorm room!
Just, plug it in!
Ok I hear you but there’s this concept, it’s called leaving your dorm room
Now I hadn’t heard of it till recently, in my college years I only left my dorm room for sustenance, education or to…do my laundry
But I do undertsand that certain homo sapiens
will venture outwards to gather and consume [libations] participate in other various social activities.
In such scenarios one may gain higher social rank within the herd
by showing up with a portable projector
it’s even possible that such a scenario may lead to romance or what i call, popularity plus with the desirable mate
all right all jokes aside having a projector in your dorm would be badass
and the portability afforded to you by the built-in battery could be wildly
useful bring it along to a study group room that doesn’t have a power plug is a
much more elegant solution to sharing notes and collaboration its size makes
moving it around easier than you’d expect and like it’s bigger brother from
our last video its ultra short throw so you can get 40 inches of screen size
just 2.9 inches away from the wall and on the subject of studying your dorm
life and just being in post-secondary education in general will very possibly
launch the biggest boom of incoming communication that you have ever
experienced managing this will be distracting feeling your phone buzz
pulling it out unlocking and opening the right app typing out some super hot fire
memes to impress that person you like ending up on Facebook for an hour when
you were just going to look at that one damn thing which brings us to item
number four the logitech K7 80 multi-device keyboard can simplify this
process it’s a Bluetooth keyboard with low profile keys so the typing
experience is somewhat similar to a laptop but that kind of thing is
everywhere its main feature is its ability to hot-swap its connectivity
between three devices like a computer a phone and a tablet it even has a handy
rail near the top to store your phone meaning you could be sitting at your
computer working with your phone propped up and plugged in with the screen always on
hot-swap when you get a message type out your reply and move on with
your work less downtime. Now no one does top force five is the magic number and I
was struggling to come up with another one
thankfully as I was throwing this together the night before the due date I
had a hankering that inspired me nongshim spicy kimchi flavored bowl
noodle now you might argue this isn’t a piece of tech! Fair, but it’s awesome
nonetheless even one of the top helpful reviews on Amazon titled it great for
hungry college students if you are what you eat I think at one point in my life
I was probably 25% techie dude and 75% nongshim noodles I highly recommend them
as long as you don’t mind that they certainly almost contain no nutrients
whatsoever and probably about two times the recommended daily intake of salt
depending on how many of them you eat per day for me it might have been near
eight times right now I’m not worried about that however because I’m about 95%
done hosting this video so all that’s left to say here is that hopefully these
suggestions will help you enjoy your dorm experience or just life in general
if you’re past that whole dorm phase let me know what you guys think in the
comments down below or at Linus tech on Twitter thanks for watching I’ll see you
next time if you’re interested in any of these things
check out Amazon in the link of the description down below or even one of
these shirts but I don’t think we have polos for sale so oh well
