Google Nose: April’s Fools Day Best
Let us not forget that today is April 1st – April’s Fools Day! As Google made a nice habit of celebrating the joke-based holiday, today we found it was the funniest one: search Google by smell! Now, let’s be sincere: how many of you did approach the screen in order to “smell” the word? Google Nose BETA, is the “new scentsation in search”. It also claims: “smelling is believing”.
The best of it is that it really try to convince “Google NoseBETA leverages new and existing technologies to offer the sharpest olfactory experience available”. Can we argue that? No, since “Street Sense vehicles have inhaled and indexed millions of atmospheric miles.”
Mobile are also involved in the game: “Android Ambient Odor Detection collects smells via the world’s most sensible mobile operating system”. And the newly developed “SMELLCD™ 1.8+ high-resolution compatible for precise and controlled odors” completes the big picture.
Google has also played awesome jokes on Youtube , Google Maps, Gmail and Google Analytics.
Well, April Fools, at least we had a good laugh and a terrific Monday!
