April Fool's Fun: Sony's Revolutionary "Power Food"
It's one of my favorite April Fool's jokes so far.
The Fictional Story:
The wizards at Sony's food labs have created a way to energize both you and your electronic devices. By creating what they call the "Voltaic Enzyme," they've managed to produce a line of food products that caters to the tech-savvy individual on the go.
Battery dying? Stop off at a hotdog stand and charge up. Don't have an outlet nearby when having breakfast? No worries, because that power cereal will serve as a proper power source. For the active outdoorsy type, grab a special Sony Power Bar, which can keep you - and the little camera strapped to your bike - on the move.
This is NOT a bad idea
Pretty sure it can't happen but really, it's a cool idea. I'd have a little trouble ingesting anything that supposedly powers an electronic device but hey, we could all use a little jolt in the morning, right? ;)
There are so many ridiculously stupid April Fool's gags online, but somebody obviously put a lot of time and thought into this one. The lines between humanity and technology will likely become increasingly blurred over time, so this might actually prove prophetic...
