According to Bloomberg BusinessWeek, college students today have "startup fever." Inspired by uber-successful moguls like Mark Zuckerburg and Bill Gates -- both of whom started their businesses as undergraduates -- many entrepreneurial-minded students have opted to start their own businesses. And as technology makes global reach readily available, these startups are more ambitious and creative than ever.

Below, check out some of our favorite new student startups and (for good measure) inventions. Did we miss one? Share your favorite in the comments section.

Air Guitar Iphone App
1 of 10
When James Anthony and Edward Marks were at Stanford University, they took a course on iPhone app development. There, they created the Air Guitar application, which at the time was "the only application to use the iPhone’s built-in accelerometer to allow users to play guitar by physically strumming the device up and down in a natural air guitar motion." The two quickly formed a company, Inedible Software, that has since launched a number of additional games -- continuing on their mission of "helping people use time more productively and waste it more creatively."
