Things Your Dad Wants For Father’s Day

Listen up, people. Dad’s day is around the corner (June 15!) and you have just enough time to get him something really cool this year! Let him know he can count on you, his tech-savvy child/wife/husband/etc. (informed by us but you don’t have to tell him that) to introduce him to the coolest gadgets around.

1.) Mophie Juice Pack

If he and his smartphone are attached at the hip, the Mophie Juice Pack Plus will be a godsend. Charging sticks are great, but how about a protective case that charges your phone? The Juice Pack is a battery case that charges your phone with zero extra attachments and gives you 120% more battery power.

“Equipped with more than 120% extra battery, it gives you enough power to push through the toughest days, longest flights, or unexpected deadlines. The juice pack plus is the perfect balance of extra battery power and durable protection from whatever you find yourself getting into. Bring a dead battery back to life while having enough leftover power for when you’re still on the move. Surrounding the case is a dual texture, rubberized, shock-resistant band that is still easy to slide in and out of your pocket without sacrificing protection.”

2.) Cyclists Virtual Safety Lane

The ultimate bike safety gadget, this device creates a virtual safety lane to alert cars to your presence when riding at night. Kill two birds with one stone: show him you care about his safety and give him something cool for father’s day!

“This device mounts to a bicycle’s seat post and projects two 5-milliwatt red lasers onto the ground, generating a virtual bicycle lane. Providing motorists with a visual indicator of a cyclist’s riding width, it is ideal for increasing the safety margin around a cyclist during pre-dawn or dusk rides. Visible under headlights and streetlights from over a mile away, the 6′-long lane begins mid-cycle at the seat post and extends behind. An additional five red LEDs increase visibility as a standard blinking taillight.”

3.) The iPad Paintbrush

An undeniably cool gift that won’t break the bank. For artsy and artistically challenged dads alike!

“This is the paintbrush that allows you to create works of art on a tablet computer or smartphone. The paintbrush uses patent-pending synthetic hairs infused with conductive properties, designed with the same taper, flexibility, and strength as traditional bristles, resulting in the same feel and authentic strokes. Identical in size and weight to typical painting implements, the iPad paintbrush simulates painting in acrylic, watercolor, or charcoal media using Apple and Android apps. Made from brass with chrome plating and a soft rubber grip for optimal control.”

4.) Ebony Creative WordClock

Because everyone could use a cool clock! (And this is just about the coolest one we’ve ever seen).

“This is an ebony colored Creative Collection WordClock. Beautiful, contemporary and stylish! With a slightly reflective acrylic sheet in front of the clock, it takes on a completely new dimension.”

5.) Laser Projection Virtual Keyboard

Keyboards don’t get more portable than this! If he has always wanted a futuristic laser keyboard that’s so small it could fit in a pocket, you’re in luck.

“Revolutionary laser technology projects a virtual keyboard on any flat surface. Advanced optics track your fingers like magic. Easily pair the laser projection keyboard with your smartphone, laptop or tablet.”
