Today’s graduates will be among the first generation of humans who won’t think that autonomous cars are a reality and not reserved for television cartoons about the future. That means that it takes a lot to impress these high school, college and grad school graduates with technology. They have come of age using 3D printers, iPads, GPS, drones and high-end headphones.
When it comes to selecting the perfect gift for a 2017 graduate, one must consider a few things: First, does the graduate desire something practical? Second, will this gift become obsolete in only a few short years? Third, will the graduate be impressed by this technology? I’ve put together a nice mix of various tech gifts that I think this year’s graduate will really appreciate. Many of these products have been discounted for Father’s Day and graduation season, so check online for the best prices.
