Time to really fly!

Drones are the biggest thing to hit UK consumer electronics since the iPod and DAD are delighted to being to the UK one of the most highly featured, sophisticated, reliable and robust drones yet produced.

Available in three main forms, the Xiro Xplorer leads the charge with its incredible performance and ease of use.  The drone itself features three flying modes from beginner to expert, all versions have GPS waypoint ability and a host of flying functionality that keep them exciting, yet safe for anyone over 18 to fly.  The control software works with your smartphone - which clips onto the remote controller - and in the video enabled models, this also enables high quality live streaming video.

Two camera platform versions are available - the V and G.  

The Xplorer V features Xiro's own highly refined HD camera, which can even capture 13MP professional RAW files - something unique to the Xplorer at this price point.  A host of features including object tracking and intellegint selfie mode, plus total control over camera settings on the fly make the V an extremely versatile prosumer video gathering device.

The Xplorer G is Xiro's GoPro platform.  A superb quality GoPro compatible 3 axis stabilised gimbal is included and software allows remote controlling of the GoPro with live viewing, of course, comes as standard.

Time to really fly with the new Xiro Xplorers! 

The latest brand to come on board with DAD is Alcohoot - already a top-selling brand in the US.  The Alcohoot Smartphone Breathalyser brings Police grade fuel cell technology to the private user for the first time.  

Use the Smartphone app to measure your blood alcohol level - ideally the morning after, to ensure your safety to drive.  The unit is smart enough to calibrate itself, using your smartphone's GPS, to the local legal limits and measurement units.  

The app can track your readings, give historical data, even suggest local eatieries or search taxi information for you if you blow over the limit!

The unit comes with 8 replaceable tips for hygiene and further tips can be purchased.

Be smart, use Alcohoot. 


Lamborghini - a name that you can't mistake.  Tonino Lamborghini is no simple badging excercise - the company is run by the son of Ferrucio Lamborghini - the man behind the famous car brand.

This new range of headphones has been styled to follow the innovative and eye-catching style language used by the incredible Italian supercars.  This doesn't mean they are style over substance, though.  With an over ear design and three versions of their in-ear product, they use innovative, top-performing technologies to give audio performance to match the stunning looks.

Starting at £69.99, they are also attainable by those who may not necessarily have access to their automotive namesakes!  Check them out here on the DAD site now. 

We're really excited to have one of the worlds most trusted and established brands on board at DAD with their exciting in-car camera range.  

These are designed to run constantly in your car, giving invaluable evidence should you be involved in an accident.  G sensors ensure footage from an incident is saved and can't be erased.  There are also models with GPS which allow you to place your vehicle and show the exact location of any incident.

These are fast becoming a must-have item on our busy roads and we feel the HP range offers the ideal combination of quality and a pricepoint to suit all wallets.

Metal hardware... Reclaimed wood... Superb audio componentry...

Sounds reason enough to buy some great sounding headphones, right?  How about if we told you that every set of headphones sold helps provide hearing aids or hearing care to those who can't afford it, through the efforts of the Starkey Hearing Foundation.

There's two products - the in-ear Bowerys and the over-ear Troubadour.  Both have class leading performance at their price-points and a real unique style.  Using reclaimed wood enclosures (in four varieties of wood) gives the LSTN sound a warm tone - without any muddiness.  Beautiful style and performance in one package.

 Physical photos are seeing a resurgence in popularity - people are re-discovering the joy of flicking through a physical photo album, versus glarey screens on tablets or digital photo frames.  So now you can create these professional quality printed images without a trip to the high-street and a struggle with a photo vending system that's needlessly complicated.  

NFC means you can simply have an app on your phone, which starts up to let you pick what to print - simply by touching your phone to the printer!  It really is as simple as that!

Dye-sublimation printing means the resulting photo output matches professional glossy prints - this is not just a wasteful consumer inkjet with glossy paper that smears and fades.  Prints last a lifetime, and are robust and crisp.
