FOR THE DAD WHO GAMES
The GPD XP Plus is the fifteenth Indiegogo campaign from crowdfunding favorite GPD. This Android-powered handheld gaming device features a 6.8 inch touchscreen display surrounded by game controllers – but the controller on the right side is modular, allowing you to swap out controls depending on the type of game Dad is playing. It’s the only Android-powered handheld gaming console of its kind: No other console is this customizable. Use it with an FPS controller module, MOBA controller module, an Xbox controller module, and more!
FOR THE DAD THAT CAN FIX ANYTHING
Get ready to impress Dad with a whole new class of pocket tool. The UNION™ is a tool of unprecedented range and ability, and all in a tiny package. This fully-customizable tool has a wrench, screwdriver, T-handle driver, full-grip knife, and locking, pistol-grip saws that will give Dad the ability to handle whatever job needs to get done. And considering that the UNION™ folds down to 5.1″x1.77″x1.1″, it’s easy to take anywhere. Dad can use all of the tools he’d expect to find in a multitool in a slew of unexpected ways.
FOR THE DAD THAT LOVES TO COOK
You can only make a great pizza at home if you have a great oven. The makers of the Scorpio Neapolitan Pizza Oven know that high heat is the key to getting the dough crispy, which is why this portable beauty will let Dad cook every pizza to perfection at 850°F in as little as 90 seconds. It gives Dad two options for fueling his pizza frenzy: He can be a purist and use wood to power the oven, or if he’d rather prioritize convenience, he can use propane. Either way, Dad will be able to serve up a delicious pie for the whole family.
FOR THE DAD WHO IS ON THE GO (OR NOSTALGIC)
Go back to the future with this charger. The adorable Shargeek Retro 35 GaN Charger looks like a miniature original Apple Macintosh computer, with the charging capabilities to power up your devices fast. These tiny charging bricks are equipped with GaN chips and have an output of 35W, all while being the roughly same size as the original small charging bricks that Apple used to ship with its iPhones. But that’s not the best part. The “screen” on these little computer shaped bricks will change colors to indicate the charging speed activated: Yellow for normal charging, blue for fast charging, and green for supercharging.
FOR THE DAD WHO LOVES THE GREAT OUTDOORS
Whether your dad is an amateur astronomer, bird watcher, wildlife photographer, or just a photography enthusiast, the DWARF II Smart Telescope will help your dad take high resolution images from afar. The telescope lens allows Dad to take breathtaking images of anything from the moon in the sky to the birds on his lawn. The DWARF II particularly shines in its ability to capture astrophotography. It can track the movement of the stars, identify constellations, and take photographs of deep space.
FOR THE DAD WHO COMMUTES TO WORK
STRØM CITY M 2.0 is a stylish eBike straight out of the biking capital of the world. The M 2.0 is the second generation of STRØM CITY eBikes after the smash crowdfunding success of STRØM CITY W, which was one of the top Indiegogo campaigns of 2020. These beautiful eBikes ship directly from the STRØM CITY factory in Copenhagen in order to keep costs low and quality high. With the new model, riders can enjoy the integrated battery and lights, high-quality custom carriers, and a slew of customization options. It also features a newly developed carrier system and a removable basket. Combine these features with STRØM CITY’s meticulous design, and you get an eBike that is made to last.
FOR THE DAD WHO CAN QUOTE ANY MOVIE
Give your dad a huge screen without the hassle of a huge TV. The Philips Screeneo U4 Ultra Short Throw Projector can create an immersive cinematic experience right in your dad’s living room. Help Dad get the most out of movies with this projector’s vibrant colors and deep contrast. And because this projector is an ultra short throw projection, it means room size doesn’t matter. You can set it up 12” away from the wall and get an 80” picture. And this projector can be easily set up in minutes, which is perfect if your dad is technology-challenged.
FOR THE DAD WHO LOVES AN AUDIENCE
Loupedeck makes fantastic time-saving devices for live streamers. This is Loupedeck’s second Indiegogo campaign, and the new Loupedeck Live S incorporates fan feedback to improve on the original design. This creator control pad has 15 customizable touch zones that lets Dad manage the entirety of his streams from one easy-to-use interface. Loupedeck is easy to use and intuitive, with dials that allow you adjust volume levels alongside fast, configurable touch controls. The Live S is ready to work with many popular streaming apps, and content creators will love Loupedeck’s plugins for apps like Adobe Lightroom Classic and Final Cut Pro.
