Kogeto Dot 360° video lens

RH Numbers

If your dad thinks he's quite the iPhone film maker, perhaps you could give give him the ability to shoot 360° video which is, quite frankly, cooler than the Fonz on an iceberg.

This clip-on lens for the iPhone 4 and 4S paves the way for such filmography, which can be played back using a free app, swiping fingers to rotate the footage and view an entire surrounding like Google's Street View with moving footage.

These can be uploaded to join the awesome examples on Kogeto's website, or embedded in social networks, if your papa is drawn to such new age mingle tools.

Motorola MotoActV

RH Numbers

Most of us would like to see our dads plod on for years to come, so why not fork out for something fitness related? Not only will it help keep his ticker in working order, but might tire him out enough to silence the grumbles about how much better it was in his day.

The Motorola MotoactV pretty much has the lot in terms of fitness watches, from analysis tools and calorie tracking, to GPS functionality. Statistics, routes and the status of any flab-reduction-goals are all viewable through a browser too, so as long as the pater familias is sufficiently tech savvy to use the darn thing, it'll keep him on the right path, turning back the years amid all that jogging down memory lane.
