Fathers Day Gift Guide – All Things Tech
With less than one week to Fathers Day, here are the gifts for all those Tech dads out there.
Logitech invites you to tap into your creativity and dream big at your desk with the introduction of the Logitech 2017 Doodle Collection. Inspired by whimsical designs of an imaginary world, the Doodle Collection combines strong visual storytelling with intricately hand-drawn characters, patterns and symbols. This year’s collection of mice is for people with a kid-at-heart attitude and a spontaneous and imaginative spirit.
A collection of doodles – from Lightbulb to Sneakerhead to Skateburger to Triple Scoop – brings a touch of character to the Logitech® M238 Wireless Mouse.
The 2017 Doodle Collection mice last up to 12 months on a single battery. Smoothly navigate through Web pages or documents with the comfortable scroll wheel, whether you use Windows®, Mac OS®, Chrome OS™ or Linux®. The nano USB receiver allows you to roam up to 10m away.
Arckit is a multi-award winning architectural model building kit. Since launching in 2014, Arckit has opened up the world of architecture to more people than ever before.

Made in Ireland, Arckit is now available in retailers worldwide including Harrods London, Barnes & Noble across the US, Brown Thomas Dublin, Hamleys Singapore, The Smithsonian & Guggenheim museums NY and many other stores worldwide.
Arckit is popular with architects, designers, schools, budding creators and model hobbyists.

Arckit is also compatible with 3D design software, Architexture graphics to finish models with realistic detail, and a ‘coming soon’ range of bespoke 3D-printed components. There is even an Arckit Education Programme for schools to teach hands-on STEM skills.

If your tech breaks, fix it. And if it’s not broken, make it work even better. Repairing and adapting your stuff is a sustainable choice and just a little subversive.
