Gift ideas for geeky dads

A Starship Enterprise USB Webcam, a universal gadget wrist charger, and a Wi-Fi Linux-based frame are some of the items featured in the TechRepublic gallery of Father's Day geek gifts.

Whether you're still shopping for Father's Day, or you're looking for items for your wish list, or you're just in the market for a new gadget, toy, or accessory to show your geek pride, this TechRepublic gallery features some of the geekier Father's Day items available online.

If you're shopping for someone who is an early adopter, you might want to make sure he didn't already buy some of these items for himself. I'm speaking from experience.

And if your budget is more in the geeky t-shirt price range rather than the Apple iPad range, you might want to consider the (shameless plug) TechRepublic merchandise on CafePress.

What geek gifts are you asking for or giving this Father's Day? If you own any of the items listed in the gallery, would you recommend the item to a fellow geek? What's the geekiest handmade gift you've ever given or received? What would you like us to review for the Geek Gift Guide 2010 in the second half of this year? Share your answers in the discussion.
