Etsy clocks, lighting, audio and tech for DIY college students

For the anti-corporation art school student, technology is a tricky thing. With every major piece of tech comes a major corporation -- Apple, Microsoft, Google, Sony, etc. But in today's world, it's near impossible to live without technology.

Luckily, a few spots exist on the web where technology and DIY culture collide. Sure, you can't exactly buy a homemade iPhone or fully functional desktop computer that was made by a college student. But for a few dollars, you can support independent artists and buy some tech with a unique, handmade aesthetic.
