Gmail Goes Kinect for April Fools’ Day
Google usually does a pretty good April Fools’ joke; they aren’t actually trying to trick anyone, and so it’s OK with me that they do it as long as it’s actually good comedy. And this year’s definitely is, and it pokes fun at Kinect. The joke is a new product called Gmail Motion:

Why then do we continue to use outdated technology? Introducing Gmail Motion — now you can control Gmail with your body.
Of course, the joke wouldn’t be complete without a video demonstration. Enjoy:
