Toshiba’s Imaginary Wearable Computing Gloves Win April Fools’ Day

If there was some over-arching, governing body that handed out awards to April Fools’ Day prankers, I should hope that Toshiba would get one. The company today announced the Digit, sloughing off what is usually a pretty boring, business-y style to introduce something truly hilarious to the gadget world. Read More

YOU FOOLS: Large Hadron Collider To Be Testing High Voltage Collisions On The End Of The Mayan Calendar

large-hadron-collider-apocalypse.jpg

NOTE: Old article, April Fool’s joke. Actual testing schedule HERE. Boy is my face red (I’m trashed).

Despite all my hoping and praying, the world isn’t going to end on December 21st. Or at least it wasn’t going to until the scientists at CERN decided to test the Large Hadron Collider that day! *breaking out party hats and noise makers* Apocalypse party!

Scientists at CERN have announced test dates for the rest of the year, as well as some curious dates can be found in the upcoming schedule. Starting Monday, December 17, 2012 and going through Friday, December 21, 2012, CERN will be launching and running a series of collisions, which are predicted to break records in high voltage collisions already set by the LHC. With these experiments, the scientists are hoping to create atomic reactions that would provide further information about anti-matter, and the big bang.

Hell yeah, the end of the world! It’s just like that R.E.M. song. “It’s The End of the World?” What? No — Losing My Religion. Get your head in the game, brobro.

Thanks to joe, who — wait, where you going with that gun in your hand? (Jimi Hendrix reference — this post turned into a musical extravaganza!)

Google Maps 8-bit version for NES: April Fools arrives a day early in Mountain View

Image

Well, it appears that April Fools in full effect — at least if you ask Google. Today the company introduced its “latest” build of Google Maps, dubbed Google Maps 8-bit version, tailored specifically for the Nintendo Entertainment System. According to Google, this Dragonquest spoof version of Maps will come in the form of a special NES cartridge that can connect to the internet via dial-up. This apparently allows most of the heavy lifting to get done on Google’s servers, where the maps are rendered to 8-bit form “in real-time.” Better yet, it even supports voice search. Naturally, there’s no word on a release date, but you can currently check out the “beta” by visiting Google Maps in your browser and selecting “Start Your Quest.” That said, that company warns that “your system may not meet the minimum requirements for 8-bit computations” — something tells us it’ll still be less resource-intensive than Crysis, though. We’ve checked it out and found some goodies, including an alien at Area 51, so let us know what you come across during your journey in the comments.

Gmail Motion April Fools’ gag inevitably turned into reality using Kinect (video)

It had to happen. When Google showed off a new and revolutionary Gmail Motion control scheme yesterday, it failed to fool most people, but it didn’t fail to catch the attention of some motion control geeks with Kinect cameras on hand. Yep, the FAAST crew that’s already brought us a Kinect keyboard emulator for World of Warcraft has taken Google to task and actually cooked up the software to make Gmail Motion work. All your favorite gestures are here: opening an email as if it were an envelope, replying by throwing a thumb back and, of course, “licking the stamp” to send your response on its way. Marvelous stuff! Jump past the break to see it working, for real this time.
