Gmail Motion : 2011 April Fool's prank

Gmail introduces a way where by making silly body movements you can reply, compose and type your email and all this using your webcam. Woah! Have a look below

All you needed to do was to follow the Da Vinci procedures (see below) they show on their page (only if you weren't too curious about trying it and hitting on the "Try Gmail Motion button" before scrolling through the page.
Moreover, if you went further down, you would've pictured yourself doing Yoga and all sorts monkey movements at work.

Turns out that this was an April Fools prank and this year it was Gmail taking the lead.  I must admit, it was a good one. The tradition of taking the lead on April Fool's day in a fun way is something that sets them apart and shows an innovative and creative culture. Firms should follow suit.
