Are you dating a geek? That question would have generated eyerolls and nods of sympathy a few decades ago. But being a geek is a good thing in today’s world. So if you have a man in your life who’s obsessed with all the latest gear, gadgets and gizmos, and you need some ideas and inspiration for what kind of gift to get for him, take a look at the suggestions below!
You’ve probably heard your man talk about VR and how great it is, and it really is cool. Unfortunately, the top of the line equipment, from a company called Oculus Rift, is too expensive to be considered a viable gift for most people and their budgets.
Fortunately, interest in VR has generated lots of competition. And one of the most innovative products to come out of that part of the market is Pocket VR. This essentially utilizes your smartphone to create a VR experience. A fantastic product your man is sure to love.
The PhoneSoap Charger
Have you ever stopped to think about just how dirty your smartphone gets? Stop reading for a minute, pull your phone out, and take a look at it. Grossed out yet? If so, you’re not alone, but there’s a fix for that! The PhoneSoap acts as both a charger and a sanitizer for your favorite tech device, and it’s designed to work with all phones, including the newer, larger models.
Do you like listening to music as you drift off to sleep? That works if you’re sleeping alone, but if you’re sleeping with your special someone, it could become problematic. SleepPhones is one part comfortable headband, and one part speaker. You can wear them in bed without having to worry about getting tangled up in headphone or earbud cables, so it’s a vastly more comfortable option. The SleepPhone wirelessly syncs with your smartphone, allowing you to enjoy whatever music reliably puts you to sleep each night, so you can wake up feeling refreshed.
These aren’t actually available quite yet, but you can pre-order now, and that’s just as good because your guy will be thrilled at being one of the first people to get his hands on these next-generation LEDs that make any room look futuristic. The triangular patterns can be arranged to create any shape you desire and are programmable, so you can control exactly what kind and color of light they emit. Great stuff for the futurist in your life!
The Wonder Cube
Consider this to be the first multi-tool for a smartphone. This tiny cube packs a lot of functionality into a very small form factor, serving as a built-in cable, a flashlight, and an emergency charger, among other things. A very handy gift that comes in multiple colors too!
An indispensable car accessory that any tech-savvy guy will be thrilled to own. It displays a variety of relevant road and condition information without obstructing your view of the road and accessible without having to look away.
There are, of course, countless other great tech ideas for the geek in your life, but these will give you plenty of options to consider.
