As the school year ramps up again, Capital students may benefit from these cutting edge back-to-school items.
Here are three of the coolest gadgets that Capital students can purchase on Amazon.
College students are always in need of something to make their lives a little easier, especially when it comes to taking notes during a lecture.
This may look like an ordinary pen, but it is certainly far from your regular writing utensil.
The TCTEC enhanced voice recorder pen has a variety of different features, one of which includes, of course, recording. You can take notes during a lecture, all the while recording simultaneously.
The pen comes with sixteen gigabytes of storage for lectures, and has an audio reduction feature. It also boasts an automatic voice detection system, allowing for the recording to stop during silent parts of the lecture, and only capturing the speaking part of a given lecture.
Along with recording and writing, this product also acts as an MP3 player. You can play music on this pen, and even plug in your headphones to listen.
After you have recorded a lecture and you want to transfer it to a computer, you can simply do so by plugging the USB plug into a computer for download.
The next product on the list is the Travel Laptop Backpack by Amazon.
This backpack has a ton of incredible perks, one of which is its anti-theft feature.
The bag comes with a fixed password lock that ensures your items remain safe inside. No more worries that something might get stolen from your backpack!
Unlike your ordinary backpack, this one happens to be water resistant. So, your items inside will be protected from any spills.
One of the many compartments on this backpack is specifically designed for laptops. It can hold a 15.6 inch laptop or below. Perfect for carrying your laptop around rather than hauling it everywhere you go on campus.
Another feature on this product is a USB interface that allows for charging your phone. You can even plug in your headphones to the interface to listen to some tunes at the same time as you charge your device.
The bag also comes with a strap in the back of it so you can secure it to your hand luggage. In other words, this product is also ideal for travel, on top of its already spectacular every-day features.
Letter-size Price: $37.00

The last product on this list is the Rocketbook Fusion notebook.
This notebook has a total of 42 pages with seven different page styles to use. Templates provided include grid, task list, and even lined pages to help you guide your handwriting if necessary.
You can write your notes down into this notebook, scan it using the Rocketbook application, and a pdf file of your notes is created for you to view.
You can transfer your notes to services like Google drive, Dropbox, Evernote, iCloud, and more. The application will even provide a transcript of your handwriting.
Once you have filled a page with notes, you can wipe it clean with a damp cloth to restart.
This notebook eliminates clutter, and provides an easier alternative to traditional note-taking.
