    I generally love your contributions and sharing of cool gadgets and engineering marvels but I’d like to point out the so-last-century sexism you perpetuate with this list. Some dads are into sports and still cling to teen video games but some are also chefs, artists and toymakers, etc.. So get your head into some non-stereotypical ideas and look for the applied engineering in cool travelling artists kits or ultimate chef(and not just bbq) tools or books on recycling to make sculptures or toys, or whatever. With the exception of the laser razor, your list would appeal to a variety of people that include half the population!

    Oh, and only a few white wines would need both cooling and aerating and you need a differnt one for red wine so the corkcicle is a waste of money.
