Klipsch The Three Speaker with Google Assistant

Klipsch’s The Three speaker system is aimed at the audiophile who wants a plug-and-play solution with great sound. The Three ticks a lot of boxes, with full hands-free voice control with Google Assistant, Bluetooth connectivity, and a very stylish mid-century modern design that will look great in dad’s study. Klipsch is one of the more highly regarded speaker companies in the industry, so you can rest easy knowing this speaker is built to high standards. While some audio nerds may not like the fact that you have little control over individual acoustic preferences, each unit has been professionally tuned by Klipsch acousticians. And this little speaker is deceptively loud.

WORX Landroid S 20V Robotic Lawn Mower

Dad has been waking up the neighbors for years with his old gas-guzzling mower. Give him a couple of hours back by handing the chore over to a robot. The WORX Landroid S lawn mower can cover 5,445 square feet of lawn. Much like robot vacuums, the Landroid returns to its base after the task for charging. The base is covered to protect the unit from extreme heat, heavy rain, and wind. Landroid autonomously calculates how to mow your lawn. With cloud computing, it fine tunes mowing cycles according to the actual growth rate of your grass. Dad will never be the same.

BEERMKR Automatic Beer-Brewing Machine

If your dad is crazy about craft beer, he doesn’t need to head out to the local microbrewery to sample a new creation.

The machine simplifies the beermaking process to avoid some of the cumbersome brewing tools found in your typical homebrewer’s garage. Once fermentation has completed, you simply transfer the beer to the included Beertap, which uses a CO2 gas cartridge to carbonate the brew.
