Thursday Thirteen things to get dad for Father’s Day – A gift guide

So I get e-mails all the time asking if I’m making a Father’s Day Gift Guide. Hmm. So here is my gift guide. In no particular order upon request I’ll link to a review if I have one but most of these I have never seen or touched.

1)

clip_image002The HEXBUG Ant is an autonomous, high-speed micro robotic creature with probing, tactile antennas and hooked claws.  The industrious critter features front and rear touch sensors, which allow it to maneuver around objects in its path, and wheel-legs that propel it forwards, backwards and over small obstacles with furious speed.  The HEXBUG Ant has an inner body loaded with robotic intelligence, protected by a hard, transparent exoskeleton casing.

Best yet, with a retail price of $9.99, this gift is economically friendly and can be found at www.hexbug.com and at RadioShack stores nationwide.

2) CarMD_Tool_1_hires

Additionally, Studies show that the number of Americans choosing to take driving vacations within the U.S. is likely to approach all-time highs this summer.
