10. Find My Brick: An App by LEGO

LEGO ‘created’ an app that scans a pile of LEGO bricks and identifies the brick you’re looking for. While it is only an April Fools prank, many LEGO fans began asking LEGO to actually make the app.


9. A Height Verification Tool For Tinder

Men lying about their height on Tinder has become an all-to-common phenomenon on Tinder. Women (or men) go to a date expecting Gandalf and are greeted by Frodo. To combat this lie, Tinder ‘released’ a tool so that men can verify their height. When men send Tinder of themselves standing next to a public building, Tinder will put a badge next to their height so their match knows they really are 5’10” and not 5’2”.
