Three April Fool’s Day gags that are almost too real
A cryptocurrency phone, a goose farm, and a smartphone with many (many) cameras aren’t as far-fetched as you think
Coming up with pranks on April Fool’s Day is an annual ritual for tech giants around the world. But in China, jokes that seem ridiculous actually come closer to the truth than they appear at first glance...
Everyone’s getting into cryptocurrencies, so it’s not surprising that OnePlus jokingly announced its own digital currency: PeiCoin, named for co-founder Carl Pei, that people can mine just by using their phones.
It seems every company has a smartphone with two cameras on the back. So the logical joke is to take it several steps further, which Xiaomi did by showing off a fake handset with six cameras.
Sometimes, you just can’t make it up.
