Top April Fools Stunts of 2015



Yesterday was of course, April the first- and Scicon joined in the tomfoolery with our launch of the ‘AeroCardboard Evolution‘ bike box which we described as being:

An intricate fusion bringing together the best features of the AeroTech Evolution TSA bike box and leading cardboard box technology.

But did anyone fall for it? Well, yes actually. We have had numerous enquirers, wishing to purchase our all new invention, alongside plenty of media coverage.  Not to mention various confused comments from Scicon fans via facebook, twitter and instagram… Graham Hutson from The Times emailed in stating: 

Almost got me until the line about the duct tape and utility knife…

Anyway, here are a few other crackers that caught our attention:
