Best technology April Fools' jokes 2014

Chris Martin | April 2, 2014
This year has been a good one for tech April Fools' jokes so we've rounded up the best ones into one place.

It's April Fools' Day so there's a serious lack of hard technology news to bring you. So instead, we've rounded up the best tech jokes we've seen on the internet.

This year there's been some pretty decent and funny jokes published by tech companies including Google, Nokia and Samsung so here's the best ones we've seen so far.

Best technology April Fools': Nokia 3310 PureView

Do you love the now retro Nokia 3310 but wish it has a camera as good as the Lumia 1020? Well you're luck is in because Nokia has merged the two phones to bring the 41Mp PureView camera to the old school 3310 with a modified version of Windows Phone 8 to fit the screen.

Juha Alakarhu, Nokia head of Imaging Technologies, said: "I'm really excited that we've found a way to marry our innovative PureView technology with such a beloved device. With its durable design and iconic look, we think even more people will enjoy our signature PureView magic".

Best technology April Fools': Roku Watch

Roku recently announced the Streaming Stick as a rival to Google's Chromecast but what if you want to take your streaming out and about with you? Introducing the Roku Watch, the firm's first smartwatch which will track your inactivity and grant you rewards when you hit impressive milestones - 10 inactive hours = one large pizza will automatically be delivered to your home.

"We know that nearly everyone loves watching TV at home on a big ol' flat screen. The Roku Watch is for the rare individuals who enjoy squinting around a teenie tiny screen or like showing off their wearable tech." said Roku.

The device has a crystal clear 1.5 x 0.5 inch screen, HDTV omnidirectional antenna, a 40ft power cord, a customizable strap and a Roku Remote with optional belt clip. It will cost $199.

Best technology April Fools': F1 Twitter steering wheel

Red Bull Motorsports has announced that it will trial a new steering wheel in Bahrain. Formula One is the pinnacle of motorsport but it's lacking in one key area: social. This new steering wheel will allow drivers to Tweet while they drive adding another dimension to the sport. Perhaps we'll see Lewis Hamilton tweeting that he really needs the loo at half distance, or Fernando Alonso complaining about the weather.

Best technology April Fools': Google Glass Solo

If you like the idea of Google Glass but don't like the designs on offer then take a look at this new version. The Google Glass Solo, aka one lens experience (OLS) is a monocle with a lanyard so as soon as you're done with the technology you can relax your eye and let the device fall away. You can also tuck it neatly into your waistcoat pocket.
