For those of you who always feel like the beginning of a new month sneaks up on them, well, that's the beauty of April Fool's Day. Pranks such as this Google Cardboard Plastic have time to actually fool people -- if only for a moment. The beauty of this "actual reality headset," however, is that it brilliant (if hilariously) sends an inspiring message about disconnecting.

Of course, the Google Cardboard Plastic is meant to make people laugh. With overlaid text describing what this actual reality headset is capable of (i.e. fully immersive, 360 degree sound and 20/20 resolution), it's hard not to. Google itself writes, "what's realer than real? Probably nothing. Or maybe something! I doubt it, though. I think we're done." It'll be interesting to see how many orders are put in for it.
