This is no April Fool’s joke! These gadgets are real
With April Fool’s Day around the corner, you might be planning elaborate pranks to pull on your friends and family that they won’t appreciate. More power to you if that’s your game, but you might want to consider putting your practical joke skills to the test in another way – like finding gifts that people will like, but that are also way on the goofy side.
There are tons of gadgets in the tech world that have applications outside of the realm of practical usefulness. Whether you want to annoy your friends at work or add a powerful microphone to your smartphone, or just give people gadgets they’ll like and likely never use, it’s possible to find some great technological advances in the field of “why did someone invent this?”
Trick out your smartphone
There are all sorts of crazy smartphone cases, and you’d be surprised what people have jacked onto their favorite mobile devices. For example, if you consider yourself an iPhone photographer, you can find lots of slightly crazy-looking photo attachments to go with your phone at Photojojo. From a boom mic to a spotlight flash, you’ll find lots of ways to make your iPhone a more effective camera, and you’ll only look slightly goofy using them. Plus, you can get free shipping on orders over $50.
A desktop defense grid
ThinkGeek is the destination if you’re looking for gag gadgets. From its “Annoy-a-Tron” sound maker that you can secret in a co-worker’s desk, to its USB prankster kit, to USB-powered knickknacks like a foam dart launcher turret or a squirming tentacle, there are plenty of things available that will get you in the April Fool’s Day spirit. A few of them might even make fun gifts, such as t-shirts that measure local Wi-Fi signal strength.
The best part about shopping at ThinkGeek, however, is that you can get as much as 3.5 percent cash back on your purchases.
Whatever you go for, remember to shop around for the items you want, as there are lots of other tech sites that might offer better deals. Try searching the Internet for any weird gadget that comes to mind – the chances that it exists somewhere are actually not that bad.
