With school right around the corner - perhaps you’re reading this in your new dorm - we have some great projects to up your college style. As someone whose five-year reunion is looming, I am definitely a great guide on the latest trends (psych), but some things just never go out of style – and if we’re honest, everything that was once cool, is now cool again.
Spruce up that room. Look around you. What’s missing? Cool decor? Lighting?
Project Idea: LED Cloud Connected Cloud
All you’ll have to do is look up to see if you need your raincoat, snow boots or flip flops (or to see if your slippers will be OK to go outside).
Project Idea: Twinkle Zodiac Constellation
I get it, this may not be every zodiac sign’s kind of project, but for those looking for a way to display theirs, this is one for you!
Project Idea: Origami Paper Circuits
If you’re looking for something cute to create some ambiance, these paper circuits might just do the trick.
Project Idea: Component Gumball Machine
If you’re here, you’re likely into electronics. Here’s a fun way to store components and ensure easy access to the small pieces you need.
You’re likely (hopefully) going to head outside of that spruced-up room, so here’s how to step out in style:
Project Idea: DIY Light Up Shoes
Seriously, these are so cool and can be worn for a variety of occasions.
Project Idea: Marquee Party Bag
Let your bag do the talking for you – it makes that 8 a.m. class just a bit easier. With some slight tweaks, this project can be adjusted for your backpack or any other bag you’d like to give a voice.
Project Idea: Sound Reactive Jersey
Head to the homecoming game in style. This jersey helps cheer on your school’s team, and may act as a great icebreaker.
Hang out with friends.
Project Idea: Beer Pong Robots
If you’re looking to up your game before entering the World Series of Beer Pong tournaments, or you’re just looking to make beer pong more challenging, this might just be the thing (build responsibly and only drink if you’re over the legal age). If you are under 21, that cup better be filled with juice!
Don’t forget why you’re there.
