Did you read this year’s Father’s Day Gift Guide and say to yourself, “Those are all really cool, geeky gifts, but I’m looking for something amazing. Something Dad will absolutely flip over. Something that will make him completely forget about me backing through the garage door with his ’67 Camaro when I was 15 and he was out of town on business, which he never fails to bring up at every family get together despite it occurring over 25 years ago.”

Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Zero-G Experience ($4,950)

by: Will James

I’ve wanted to be an astronaut since I was a kid but mainly for one reason–zero gravity. The Zero-G Experience let’s you get the full zero gravity feel for only 5 G’s (see what I did there) and without all the training! They travel around the country, so check when they’ll be near you and make a reservation now!

Life-size Han Solo in Carbonite ($6,999)

by: Jamie Greene

What do you get the Star Wars geek who has it all? A life-size Han Solo in carbonite, that’s what! Perfect for lazy afternoons when the big guy just wants to be Jabba the Hutt and put Han in the corner. Or for when that special someone puts on a Boushh costume and comes around to make a rescue. This is the perfect office accessory or living room decoration, and the best part is that you don’t even need to worry about any annoying carbonite sickness side effects.

by: Matt Blum
