April Fools' Day might strike you as a throwaway holiday, but for many companies, it's a chance to imagine fun twists on their best selling products. And whether you appreciate that tradition or not, you have to admit — it's pretty funny.
This year definitely did not disappoint. While some of the creations are too crazy to ever actually
exist, there are many that we would love to see in production. Hey, if Nike can really create Back to the Future
's self-lacing sneakers
, some of these should be possible, right?
As usual, Google went all out

. At all.)
