New­est gad­gets on cam­pus

The bag­gage con­tent of the in­com­ing fresh­men is also very dif­fer­ent. Tmall's school season data shows that pro­jec­tors, UAVs (un­manned aerial ve­hi­cle), and bal­ance bikes oc­cu­pied the high­est pro­por­tion of or­ders by col­lege fresh­men.

The teach­ing build­ings and dor­mi­to­ries in uni­ver­si­ties are often spread out across cam­pus, caus­ing the fresh­men to re­sort to the use of bal­ance bikes. Bal­ance bikes cost about RMB 2,000 and are the best seller on Tmall dur­ing the school-open­ing season. "The bal­ance bike is easy to ride and cool­look­ing," a fresh­man said.

The fresh­men also found the best way to watch pop­u­lar TV se­ries or movies at school. They pushed the portable pro­jec­tor up the Tmall pop­u­lar­ity list, with tens of thou­sands of units sold. A mo­bile phone-sized pro­jec­tor, con­nected to WiFi, can project a 100-inch large screen, trans­form­ing any dorm room into a small "cin­ema."
