For all you gadget lovers who are fortunate enough to be heading back to college this August, here is a high-tech way to design a high-tech dorm room.
Design Your Dorm is a new service that allows users to virtually customize their future dorm rooms before they arrive on campus. Using the sites 3-D design tool you can view a layout of your actual dorm room and drag and drop in 3-D objects from an Amazon shopping cart. Design Your Dorm offers exact dimensions for every dorm room (by room number) at a handful of schools including USC, UPenn, UCLA and U of A, and general floor plans at almost every other school in the nation.
Above is a sample of a dorm room I designed…You may want to design something a little more practical. Then again if you are as gadget crazy as I am, you may not.
