16. iFixit tears-down a low-tech orange
iFixit, the firm that rips gadgets to pieces to determine what's inside, have pulled their own stunt for April Fools' day by tearing down not an iPad, or a Galaxy Note, or any other electronic device for that matter, but an orange.
Yes, an orange. Handily noted by the teardown team as being "believed to be the hybrid between a pomelo and a mandarin," the team use their existing bevy of tools and machinery to look inside one of the most popular fruits of all time. Behold, the oOpener!

17. Sony unveils gadgets for your pets
The Animalia range of devices and gadgets are specifically designed with your pets in mind. From K9 4K televisions and M3-OW KittyCans, the new line-up of Sony-branded products even account for hamsters.
From earphones that allow cats to get the rest they deserve (and with additional "I'm ignoring you" technology) to speakers for hamsters that time in-sync with their wheel-running exercise, Sony is catering for — at long last — every furry member of your non-human family.

18. Play-Doh 3D printer
3D printing is becoming all the rage, but kids have typically been left out of the fun. Play-Doh is bringing its own 3D-printing capabilities to ages 3 and above. ThinkGeek describes it as "the most economical and fun entry-level 3D printer on the market." It's also iPad compatible so you can hook up your tablet to the quick-assembly device and create your own Play-Doh designs using basic computer-aided design (CAD) software.
Alas, despite it's awesomeness, it's not real and can't (and likely never will be) available for purchase.
