With Father’s Day right around the corner, it’s time to stop procrastinating and start shopping! Dad will love these tech gadgets whether he’s a kid at heart who still loves playing video games or an engineer who loves tinkering with the industry’s latest and greatest! Here are just a few options for every kind of Dad and every kind of budget.
Bluetooth Keyboard (and Mice)
Wires are annoying. They get tangled up, they’re impossible to hide, and they limit mobility. Ditch the wires and buy Dad a Bluetooth keyboard (or mouse) for his computer or tablet. They look great and are convenient to boot. Better yet, Bluetooth keyboards don’t have to cost an arm and a leg; finding one between $20-$30 is quite easy.
Adonit Pro Tablet Stylus
The Adonit Pro stylus works with iPhones, iPads, Android tablets and phones and Windows devices – in fact, it works with nearly all touchscreen devices. The stylus is accurate, works smoothly, and looks terrific. Available in bronze, black, and silver, it matches the clean aesthetics of today’s tablets. Best of all, it makes note-taking a joy, rather than a pain. Built from steel and aluminum, it costs just $30!
Samsung Gear VR
If your father has a Samsung Galaxy device, then the Gear VR headset is a must. With unbeatable processing power, these virtual reality goggles bring apps, mobile games, and movies to life, offering up a whole new experience with intense immersive. By simply inserting your Samsung phone into the goggles, you can engage with content in all new ways. Movies look larger, games become more immersive, and apps become more interactive.
When it comes to tech gadgets, the 21st century has shown no interest in slowing down. Smartphones slowly gave way to tablets (if not in outright numbers then in novelty) and tablets have now given way to smart watches. Though these wearable tech devices had a bit of a rocky start, they finally seem to be catching on. With gadgets like Apple’s Watch, Motorola’s Moto 360, and Samsung’s Gear S2 available, there’s no shortage of choice.
Samsung 88″ Ultra High-Definition Curved TV
Yes, it’s the price of a compact sedan but we guarantee you that nobody else on the block will have a TV as nice as this one – Samsung’s 4K Series Curved Smart TV. Plus, if you wait a year (or two), the odds are good that the price will drop by half. The selling points are somewhat self-evident, too. An 88″ screen! Not 50 inches, not even 60 inches, but 88 inches! And then there’s the 4K ultra high-definition resolution (four times the resolution of Blu-ray), for unparalleled picture quality. Finally, there’s the ultra-thin bezel and curved display, for the most immersive experience possible. Quite simply, when it comes to televisions, this is the king of kings.
Tesla, Leaf, Bolt, and More – Electric Cars
There is no gadget more “gadgety” than an electric car. If Dad is a true technology junky, nothing will excite him more. The good news is that the selection is more wide-ranging and appealing than ever. On the high-end, there’s Tesla’s Model S and Model X. It’s fair to say they lead the competition. On the low-end, there’s practical yet still appealing Nissan Leaf and forthcoming Chevy Bolt. These cars put electric motoring in reach of most people (well, most people with a means of charging them, anyway). And of course, the mid-range offers everything from the eccentric BMW i3 to electric versions of middle-class staples like the Volkswagen Golf. Join the 21st century and go electric!
