Google had a bit of fun on April Fools with their announcement of a new technology for their Gmail service. The service promised Xbox Kinect-like functionality for your mailbox via professional looking Google Motion videos & and a full blog post on the official Gmail blog.
Using hands free motion controls you could potential compose & even reply to messages. What made this a solid April Fool’s joke is simply due to the practicality of the new function. The technology is already there and Google has the know-how to introduce such a feature. Alas, it was only some well-crafted trickery.
