Happy April Fool's Day!

Several companies are getting in on the April Fool's fun with the launch of "new products."

T-Mobile went all out this year, introducing the world's first smartshoephone called the "T-Mobile Sidekicks."

The soles of the shoes turn into speakers and the shoe laces are retractable ear buds. Want to take a photo? There is also a camera on the shoes.

While the smartshoephone may not be real, you can preorder the shoes (without the technology) from T-Mobile.


Burger King joined the fun by announcing the Chocolate Whopper. The new sandwich boats a chocolate cake bun, raspberry syrup instead of ketchup and white chocolate rings instead of onions.
