“Any fool can make a rule, and any fool will mind it”
But let’s just talk about Yesterday i.e. 1st April. The Fools’ Day, the whole world was celebrating it by making Hoax and fools to one another and was allowed just because everybody knows about the same. Entertainment sector was doing all good in their respected domains then why would our tech sector remain silent, they were also having fun with their users. Google, Ola, Amazon are amongst the ‘pranking’ companies. Many of these companies and even few other started creating stories and doing all this before the day. OnePlus tweet teases a Dash Charge-facing announcement available at the dash outlets. A few of them even looked much real but the day was such an amazing nobody gonna believe on any of the hoax announcements taking them seriously.
#7 Amazing Pranks Happened In The Tech World
Here are this years’ 7 Amazing Pranks Happened In The Tech World. Pranks that companies decided to play on us. Some are funny, some lame, and rest were insane just take a look.
#1 Google: Starting It With Google
Google is the first name in the peoples’ list if anybody thinks about the emerging tech world. The innovations brought by them are quite interesting every time and are even very easy to believe. This time the company came up with a new product and it’s hard to believe, the targeted audience is not you or any of the age group living on this planet the targeted audience this time are your pets. your cats, dogs and the product is called ‘Google Gnome‘ – the ultimate backyard thing. The ‘voice-activated, hands-free tool’ is more than a speaker that can answer all your queries like Google Home, but also a laser-equipped hedge trimmer.
The company also released a new feature for pets on the Google app for iOS – users can use 3D Touch on the app icon or head to Settings and select I’m Feeling Woof or I’m Feeling Meow let your dogs and cats get info on topics they care about whether that means squeaky toys or a bowl of milk. With I’m Feeling Woof and I’m Feeling Meow on the Google app, canines and felines alike can surf pet-friendly info with just a press of their paw” and probably this is something new and even amazing. They just need to tap on ‘I’m Feeling Woof’ or ‘I’m Feeling Meow’ to get themselves topics and things that can cheer them up. Google has also introduced ‘Google Play for Pets’ to let your pets surf apps and games that can stimulate them. If it feels unreal to you, then you’re right. It’s another April Fools’ joke from Google.
Another prank was inside the Google Maps where all their users can play a Pac-Man game in any area that has enough roads along with multiple characters to navigate. This was once reported back in 2015 also.
Why would Indian companies remain behind in playing pranks with their Indian customers? They should follow the trend from the Tech World around, isn’t it?. On 1st April i.e. Fools’ Day. Ola Cabs has launched a new service called ‘Ola Wheels’ to commuting inside buildings. Ola Wheels are the electric scooters that can take you from one place to another if you are unable to move even a little bit try to call Indian people the lazy ones. It really sounds great.

Ola says, “Wheels is integrated into the Ola App. Just open the ‘Wheels’ icon on the Ola app which will appear if you open the app. Even though he is still in Beta, we have covered a large number of corporate business zones for now and are looking to expand this very soon.” There are also three-tier plans for Ola Wheels – Wheels Rental, Wheels Reach, and Wheel Play. You can travel from your bedroom to your kitchen.
Pets again, this time Amazon has opened a new way of interaction between a digital assistant and your pets as you all know what Amazon’s voice assistant Alexa is capable of doing. Amazon Echo now comes with ‘Petlexa’. They understand animals and pets language and does exactly what they want or ask them to do. Just an example here, a dog can order pedigree from Amazon, a cat can order some milk. “Petlexa gives pets the freedom to ask for food, place orders from Amazon, and activate smart home enabled toys,” says Amazon.
“If your pets are shy to warm up to their new AI friend, try suggesting music by The Animals or an audiobook like Marley and Me on Audible.”
This company did something different. On April 1 they just shared a video on its Twitter handle, with CEO Lei Jun teasing a Mi Smart Motorcycle as due to launch soon in India.
#5. ‘Sofia’ Smart Sofa
Everything is becoming smarter nowadays then why would we leave a sofa behind? Wayfair answered this question with a voice-driven smart sofa that can read out your calendar events to you, has built-in parental controls to daunt kids if they are recklessly jumping on it, can track your fitness data (basically much of the time you spend lying on it), and can even clean itself automatically.

A social experiment named ‘Reddit Place’ which is a large white pixel canvas where a user can place colored pixel every five minutes to create some entity or design of their own choice. The canvas is already littered with creation attempts, a smorgasbord of slogans, inappropriate images, and much more.
Lyft has introduced a glove that is so powerful that it can summon Lyft cars and taxis right in front of you being a ride-hailing app company, we are expecting the little similar thing from them. You just have to wave your hand in the air. Called Lyft Mono, this smart glove makes you look like a superhero who had many capabilities to do anything. That’s quite interesting and stupid at the same time. Just see the image of one of the Pranks Happened In The Tech World yesterday.
