Google are back at it again with their annual April Fools day joke, this time they’ve created a fake new feature in Gmail called ‘Motion’ and an accompanying video describing how it works. Gmail Motion is described as using your computer’s Webcam to detect your body movements and convert them into user commands that Gmail can decipher. So in other words its kind of an Xbox 360 Kinect-style input feature. The hoax viral video demonstrates the hilarious physical movements and gestures needed to open and close an email, type, reply etc.
