Who wouldn’t love a smartphone that turns into a smart knife? Samsung has gotten on to the bandwagon of tech companies with a funny bone, and has written a long blog post launching a product called the Samsung Galaxy Blade Edge. The Blade Edge is the outcome of an elaborate April Fools’ Day joke.

The details in which the company has gone in conceptualization this fake product is commendable. It details the product specs, USP and relevance in the market. What’s more, it even announced accessories like custom handles and protective sleeves for the smart knife. Real sharp thinking, eh?

A knife being a harmful instrument, the company even elaborates on the safety element it embeds. It brings along its Knox Security, which will cause the blade to retract before cutting skin. “Just be sure to scan your fingerprint on the home button beforehand to activate finger-detection. A human blood sensor also prevents the device from being used to hack up another human,” the company details.
“Samsung boasts that this razor-sharp diamond edge is capable of slicing delicate heirloom tomatoes and tough enough to cut through a lobster tail. The included sensors and built-in algorithms analyze your grip and strength, adjusting the device’s weight to improve your slicing and dicing. Samsung promises that the product can cut up to 50 percent faster than traditional knives,” the company brags.
Let’s just say that while this is a brilliant joke, we cannot help but wish this product was true. As the company itself confirms, “Seriously, as ridiculous as this sounds, it makes more sense than the Galaxy S6 Edge.”
Many tech companies are indulging in such elaborate pranks today. Google is following its age-old tradition and has launched a personal assistant Google Panda at a fake press conference. If you head over to Google Maps, the platform has transformed into a Pac-Man game eating up the streets. OnePlus launched, much to everyone’s disappointment, a tiny little quadcopter instead of a drone. Also, check out how Uber is helping folks in pranking their crazy car loving friends!
