These do-it-yourself kits are fun and easy gadget projects that just about anybody can do. Choose from an Altoid tin 9v USB Charger ($10) or a Mini LED Flashlight ($9). Each kit includes all necessary parts and step-by-step instructions, which not only explain what to do, but why you're doing it. Break out the soldering iron and do something constructive.

  • HP Presto Printer

    Everyone has that technology-challenged loved one that hasn't yet joined the email generation. Well, now they can at least receive emails, all without touching a computer. The HP Printing Mailbox for Presto ($150; Nov. 1) uses the new dial-up email service to retrieve messages sent to their Presto email account, and then prints them out according to the selected Presto Style. Presto Styles reformat messages to appear in full color, improving readability. The service costs $10 a month or $100 a year.

  • Dyson Root 6

    The Dyson Root 6 really sucks. But that's a good thing. Thanks to Dyson's patented Root Cyclone technology, the Dyson Root 6 ($150; Oct. 23) will probably be the only handheld that will never clog or lose suction. The Dyson Root 6 has twice the suction of other handhelds, and uses a rechargeable lithium ion battery and comes with a specially designed combination brush/stair tool for cleaning. Plus, it just looks like it can shoot powerful laser beams with the push of a button.
