Groovy gadgets for Dad


Flip Mino III HD 1hr pocket video camera

Cost: $99.95

The Flip Mino IIIis a very small, very easy to use, video camera. It almost feels like it was designed to fit in a dad-sized pocket, and best of all, you just press the big red button once to start or stop recording video. Simple. Visit the Flip website to find out where you’ll be shopping this Saturday.


Navman 4.3” Portable Navigation

Cost: $113.00

The days of overpriced GPSs are over. Now getting around is affordable and easy. Simply type in your destination using the touch screen and wait for a charming disembodied voice to give you turn by turn instructions. This is the perfect gift for a dad on the move and the zoom function is a good backup for when you forget your reading glasses. JB Hi-Fi has them for a good price, and they are open all weekend.


Digitech GE4056 USB Turntable

Cost: $69.00

Having an MP3 player or iPod can be great, but what does it mean for your LP collection? Rather than purchasing all of your favourite music again on CD or online as an MP3, why not just convert your vinyl? The Digitech USBturntable connects to your computer and, with the accompanying software, you can convert songs on your LPs, 45s and 78s to MP3 and then load them onto your iPod. There are a number of these devices on the market, but we found this simple and cost-effective option on the Jaycar website.
