April Fools' Day: The best joke products - watch

By
April Fools' Day provided its usual collection of prank inventions and ideas across the internet. Here are some of the best:

Peugeot: Car paint that changes color with mood



The faux Peugeot promises a new paint, available first on the RCZ, which changes color depending on one's psychological state.

"Technicians at Peugeot developed this pioneering new technology by using a psychochromatic coating, which alters the molecular structure of the paint to emit light at varying wavelengths," said the official website.

"The driver's moods are detected via heat sensors integrated into the steering wheel, which read their body temperature and pulse rate to change the exterior color of the car accordingly."

YouTube: The YouTube Collection on DVD



YouTube aired an advert for its new 'offline mode': Truckloads of DVDs of the entirety of the online video library.

With an hour of video uploaded to the site every second, keeping the collection up-to-date may prove difficult for any potential customers.

Kodak: Live kitten printer

Kodak claimed to have made massive developments in the field of 3D printing with a printer that delivered live kittens to the user. Their future plans included a commercial large scale elephant printer.

"The first of these products is available now!" the company posted. "KODAK Picture Kiosks can now print Live Kittens. Starting today, at selected retail locations, you can choose from 12 perennially popular breeds of Felis silvestris catus and have your own live, furry little of ball of cuteness printed right there – in store, in minutes!"

Mashable: Conan O'Brien buys out website



Conan O'Brien, who presents late-night talk show Conan, released a video claiming to have bought out the popular technology site Mashable. He stated he had paid CEO Pete Cashmore "3,500 smackeroos" before kicking him out.

"There's going to be a lot of changes around here," he added. "So stay tuned, 'cos I'm in charge now. I'm going to be sending out a lot of tweets!"

Virgin Volcanic: Journeys to the center of the Earth

Complete with a professional-looking website, Richard Branson's next alleged venture, Virgin Volcanic, stated: "Using patented carbon-carbon materials pioneered for deep space exploration, Virgin is proud to announce a revolutionary new vehicle, VVS1, which will be capable of plunging three people into the molten lava core of an active volcano."

The claim was even accompanied with celebrity endorsements from Seth Green and Tom Hanks.

Hanks said: "A window seat for a journey to the liquid core of our home planet would be a bargain at twice the price."

Lynx: App that lets mobile spray deodorant



Lynx claimed to have made a foray into the technology market by creating the Lynx Spray App. The app would allow you to choose from a range of fragrances depending on who you intend to seduce.

Once selected, tapping the can on screen makes a jet of deodorant spray from your smartphone whenever it is needed.

Firebox: Dubstepladder

The popular gadget website 'unveiled' its latest pun-based product, the Dubstepladder.

"Each of the pressure-sensitive rungs is pre-programmed to play a 5-second burst of grimy, bass-heavy gibberish as you step on it," the listing explained. "And with a built-in modulation interface at the top you can even tweak them as you work. Step up and down and piece together a pounding, electro-cacophony to rival your dubstep heroes!"

The ladder, also featuring light-up steps, retails at £70,000 ($110,000).

Sony: World's Smallest Ultrabook



Sony declared it had created an Ultrabook "the size of a quarter" complete with a Core i9 processor and "0.75" x 1.25" Full HD 1080p screen".

They said: "With uncompromising attention to detail and a passion for design, Sony introduces the next generation in the VAIO line up; the world's most portable Ultrabook."
