On April 1st, 2015, Google.com built a backward version of its site – http://com.google. Where they displayed everything in reverse. I think Google is King of the April Fools’ Day pranks.
Samsung decided to provide an excellent solution for all ye Food lovers. The BLADE edge is a cooking companion anyone that loves food will want. Running on the latest OS, the BLADE edge is a Galaxy S6 that has been turned into a knife. According to Samsung, the razor-sharp diamond edge will cut through tomatoes or lobster tails with ease. LOL April Fool of life mayne.
Motorola in attempt to pull off their April Fools Prank decided to unveil their selfie stick – The Moto Selfie Stick
The German car maker announced that it is introducing a line of mouth guards for rugby players delivering them the same top quality impact protection that their drivers have come to expect. “The interior of the guard uses tyre tread technology and grips accordingly while the BMW signature kidney grille lies between the front incisors acting as an elegant respiration vent” – Nice innovation but the only thing I like was the man’s face.
Twitter didn’t want to be left out, they released their own version of the selfie Stick – theTwelfie, The Stick is made from unobtainium (as NASA calls it) and can be charged using solar power. The spring-loaded cradle will support any phone and it will be available to buy from $39.99 by Christmas in Neverland.
Skype’s April Fools Prank was shallow – their attempt at unveiling a gluten free skype didn’t pull through. Skype’s global director for Social Media explained why the company chose not to prank its users
Sony is due to release the PlayStation’s virtual reality headset Project Morpheus in 2016, but it looks like the company has another wearable to keep us occupied – Meet the PlayStation Flow. The connected goggles, sensors and headphones allow you to take part in any underwater activities that might be in the game you are playing by actually going for a swim. Your PS4 will link to the goggles via Bluetooth and you can see the action on LCD screens. (Source – TheNextWeb)
HTC showed off its latest feet engineering yesterday – the Re Sok. The RE Sok is a connected smart sock that can keep you up to date with your Smartphone’s notification through the tiny screen or using ‘read out’ feature on your ankle. The socks also have an integrated GPS tracker that can track them down if they go missing in the laundry.
Amazon took us back to 1991, I remember visiting their website yesterday and thinking I had a made a mistake. Nice!
10. MIZ- MOZ
Though not a Tech brand, Miz Moz created a tech innovation that they claimed is not an April Fools’ joke (LOL I think it is though). The popular New York Shoe brand decided to delve into Tech by creating a Selfie Shoe. Reason why I think it is an April Fools’ day joke – who on earth is going to raise up her leg that high for a SELFIE?? come on!
And Finally, Microsoft did not want to be left out of the April Fools’ prank, They launched an MS-DOS Mobile for Lumia Smartphones .. come on. MS-DOS?? sigh.. They really need to step up their April Fools Prank game
