April Fools might still be a day away for most of us, but that’s not stopping companies from celebrating a bit early with their own little pranks. For Samsung, their April Fools announcement is yet another edge-display variant of the Galaxy S6, the Galaxy BLADE Edge. Samsung Tomorrow bills the new (and completely made-up) device as the world’s first smart knife, containing the same internals as the Galaxy S6 and even running Android with Touchwiz, but a super sharp edge that’s perfect for cutting.
Samsung’s says its knife-phone has a diamond-cut ceramic body that’s razor-sharp and “tougher than stainless steel yet lighter than plastic”. There’s also the ability to chop/cut/slice/dice 50% faster than before, “sensors and algorithms that analyze your grip, dexterity, and strength to set the weight in optimal proportion to create the perfect rhythm and inertia.”
Things get even crazier when Samsung goes into Knox Security and how finger detection prevents you from getting cut, specialized software features, and there’s also mention of several customizable handles made of ceramic, steel, olivewood, or mammoth tusk. A very detailed prank indeed. We certainly recommend checking out the full post on Samsung Tomorrow.
What do you think of Samsung’s April Fools smart knife? Personally, I have to admit I think it looks awesome, even if such a product would be absolutely pointless in real life.
