The Best April Fools Jokes You Haven't Seen

The 9 Best Fake Gadgets of 2017, from Design News.

It's a bit hard to pick a favorite, but I think I'd go with something reminiscent of existing technology I've written about before: drones that follow you around to take pictures of how awesome you are.

7. SpatiaFlight – the Floating Speaker

Let's face it. Headphones are annoying, not to mention they don't help you stand out in a crowd. Wouldn't it be nice to have a speaker that could just follow you around without all the hassle? Look no further than SpatiaFlight. Lifestyle product design company, Moshi, has unveiled a firmware update for its Spatia wireless speaker system that allows them to hover and follow you around – even outdoors. The update gives new definition to the term AirPlay, creating a mobile, hands-free experience for every audiophile.

Most of the 9 listed fake gadgets have videos, and I could have picked one of three or four to put here.  None of the videos are long, so go waste some time!


  1. When I am done using the Micro tools, and I take the magnifier off of my head, how am I going to find my glasses after the glasses have blended chameleon like into the background?

    Starting my day with a smile is always good.

    1. And those other two, the tiny tool kit and the stealth glasses, both could have been the one I posted.

  2. 7. Mount some small Bluetooth speakers on a drone .programmed to "follow me" . . .
