CNET News Video: Out of the ordinary grad gifts

1:33 /

Earning a diploma is hard work. Say "Well done!" with a tech treat. CNET's Sumi Das shares a few fun gift ideas, including a device that turns your tablet into a foosball table and handlebars that can track your bike when stolen.

What's the best way to congratulate your favorite grad? A gadget, of course. Trick out their two-wheelers with the $280 Helia straight bar. Swap out a bicycle's standard handle bars for this smarter option that has both a built-in headlight and a turn signal system. Tucked inside the handlebars are a GPS unit and Sim card slot. So, if your bike is stolen, you can send the device a text message and you'll receive a reply with a link to the bike's location. It may be time for grads to get a job, but you know what they say about all work and no play. The $200 Playstation Vita Slim is thinner and lighter than its predecessor, and a great way to get a gaming fix on the go. For the music-loving graduate the $45 CandyShell Amped iPhone case from Speck is an easy way to pump up the volume. These snake shaped designs boost sound without needing additional power. [MUSIC]. The $130 Yurbuds sport earphones offer a way to cut the cord. These bluetooth headphones are designed to stay put once you have them in your ears. Buttons build into the earbuds let you adjust volume, skip tracks, and answer calls. And finally, a clever twist on an old school favorite. The $40 classic match foosball turns your iPad into a foosball game. With nostalgic touches like functional control bars and. Score counter that's one way to help graduates reach their goals. In San Francisco I'm Semi Das at CNET.com for CNET news.
