Sometimes a futuristic prank can give inspiration to the creative minds, to make the joke a reality. Well, that’s exactly what the Google’s April Fool joke on “Gmail Motion” has done to some ever inquisitive minds.
Some researches from USC’s Institute for Creative Technologies took the joke as a serious challenge, and developed the “Gmail Motion” for real.
What is Gmail Motion?
Motion sensor gaming is becoming more and more popular each day, and the perfection of Microsoft Xbox 360 Kinect and Sony PS3 Move has been amazing.
Some companies are also working towards making this facility available on television and computers. That’s why most of us got deceived by the Google joke.
The Gmail Motion spoof claimed that users can type letters and send e-mail with full-body movements.
