While many people find April Fools’ on the Internet annoying, we find it’s full of awesome things that we wish were real products. We’ve gathered up 10 that we would love to see be real (well, the Netflix one is real in that you can watch it right now), but sadly they will just exist in our dreams.

Airbnb

Airbnb has had a lot of success with helping people rent out their homes, but what about doing the same at work? The new division – Airbrb – will assist you in renting out your desk for various lengths of times while you go to lunch, meetings and more!

BMW

Whenever I wouldn’t sleep as a baby, my folks would put me in the car, drive around the block and I was out in seconds flat. With that in mind, the new BMW ZZZ may be the ultimate bassinet for parents with newborns.

Nerf Nuke

It is well known that the TechnoBuffalo offices have an ever growing arsenal of Nerf weapons. Some have even accused me of taking the fight “nuclear” in the past when I brought in battery operated automatic Nerf guns… they’ve seen nothing yet when I get my hands on ThinkGeek’s Nerf Nuke.

Netflix Rotisserie Chicken

Netflix describes this Rotisserie Chicken masterpiece as follows:

In the tradition of “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” witness a searing, chronology-defying return to one’s origins that stokes the imagination.

Nokia

Nokia 3310 April Fools

Nokia is bringing back the 3310, one of its most popular handsets from the early 2000s. It has been updated for today with a 41-megapixel PureView camera and it includes Snake. Really, what more could you ask for?

Reddit

Using your hands is so last year when it comes to navigating a website, and that’s why Reddit has introduced Headdit. Now you can navigate, submit votes and open links by simply using head gestures.

Roku

Roku Watch

The Roku is an awesome streaming media solution, but it’s so annoying you can’t take it on the go with you. Enter the Roku Watch. Now you can watch your favorite Roku channels from wherever you are.

Rosetta Stone – Learn to Speak Klingon

Have you ever wanted to learn Klingon but just didn’t think you could do it? Well, Rosetta Stone to the rescue! With an endorsement from Worf himself, what are you waiting for?

SwiftKey

You love SwiftKey on your phone, but what about your traditional keyboard? Introducing FlowHard.

Titanfall: Optimus Prime DLC

Titanfall got you down with its lack of customizable Titans? What if Optimus Prime joined your fight?
