Want an Inexpensive Ferrari for Father's Day? ThinkGeek's Got One in Nano!

Gadget Retailer Picks Presents for Dads in the Digital Age

FAIRFAX, VA--(Marketwire - May 20, 2008) - ThinkGeek (, the online retail hub for technology enthusiasts, today unveiled a list of high-tech gadgets specifically engineered to be at the top of every dad's wish list this Father's Day.

"Father's Day is always a fun time when we get to roll out the gift ideas that really bring out the kid in every dad," said Caroline Offutt, general manager, ThinkGeek. "Why settle for just getting him a necktie when 1.3 Megapixel Spy Camera Sunglasses, for example, are just a few clicks away?"

Among the expected hot products for the grown-up geeks are the Nano Drive R/C Ferrari Replicas ($29.99), which fulfill every father's big dream in a very small way with an officially licensed car that is about $300,000 cheaper than the full-sized version. Other products expected to be popular leading up to and following Father's Day include:

--  1.3 Megapixel Spy Camera Sunglasses ($99.99) - Not exactly sure why
    you'd want to arm your father with covert means of snapping pictures via
    his sunglasses? He'll be sure to have fun with this gadget -- which also
    comes with built-in ear buds to enjoy MP3s.
--  Version 1.0 and Version 2.0 T-Shirts ($12.99 - $16.99) - If having
    kids were only as easy as updating your software. Matching tees reveal that
    kids are just a chip off the old version.
--  Stainless Steel Wallet ($79.99) - This amazing wallet has the texture
    of silk -- but is made of woven micro fibers of stainless steel. Dad will
    feel sleek and stylish as he doles out more cash for his children.
--  Indiana Jones Officially Licensed Fedora ($99.99) - Help your dad
    achieve the iconic status he always thought he had anyway. Whip not
--  Pogo iPhone Stylus ($24.99) - Tool specifically designed to let dads
    fool hi-tech touch screens into thinking they have something other than
    stubby fingers.

    have traded in their 45s -- an automated storage solution that holds 150 of
    the non-vinyl discs.
--  E-Ink Display Watch ($249.99) - Dads can now stare disapprovingly
    between curfew breakers and this piece of timekeeping brilliance, which
    easily changes its face with the push of a button.

    foot in the digital age can rock out to their digital music while riding in
    their cassette-playing Oldsmobile.
--  Dueling Space Marines Copter Set  ($39.99) - This set of two amazingly
    small infrared remote control helicopters look like Space Marines and can
    battle by shooting invisible IR beams (and thus answer the question of who
    gets to drive).
--  Dough-Nu-Matic ($129.99) - Dads love doughnuts. 'Nuff said.
--  iRecord 1-Touch iPod Video Ripper ($199.99) - Let Dad instantly record
