    Talk about a project you've done in your own time that you enjoyed doing. That, or remote desktop to your home network via your phone and show them something funky running on it.

    Never set up your own FTP server? Never built your own website? Setting up a LAN party? Remote controlled your PC with an ageing Sony Ericsson feature phone via Bluetooth? Little things that only an enthusiast would ever really do.

    I am building a website, but that's for a uni project - can i still talk about it?

    I have a phone and an Xbox console connected to my laptop by bluetooth but what precisely can i talk about regarding it?

    Yeah, absolutely.

    Just tell them that you're always tinkering and trying to get one device to talk to another via any means you can find. You know, if it comes up!

    I hate to ask, but do you actually have a passion for IT? If you do, you ought to know some ways in which it manifests itself. If you don't, you're going to find it hard to demonstrate one!
