Give Him An IndieGoGo Investment
It's no surprise that IndieGoGo and Kickstarter have revolutionized the world of technology. And nowhere has this consumer revolution been stronger than in the world of 3D printing. While you cannot invest in a project and expect to get the physical product in time for Father's Day, you can give your dad a certificate for an upcoming product. Not only will a cool gadget be on its way, but he'll feel like he's part of special group of people investing in some kind of future innovation.
Our suggestion: The New Matter MOD-t, for $199. This might not be the biggest or fastest 3D printer, but it is one of the most affordable and has such a sleek design. Every dad would be impressed!

Go Mobile With Portable Printers
Okay, we might concede that printers aren't the most mobile things in the world, but with these newer portable models, they're no way you can say printing is obsolete!
