Best April Fool's Vid: BeardSwipe

Apr 02 at 2pm

BeardSwipe knows you, knows you're a dude with a beard and a phone. So why are you still using your fingerprint to unlock your iPhone? 

Created by iStrategyLabs and tested on mustaches, eyelashes, and designer stubble, BeardSwipe uses your facial "thumbprint" or BRT (beard recognition technology) to unlock your phone with your beard, seamlessly. It might just be a genius April Fool's Day prank, but who knows, maybe one day your beard will unlock your Mission Bicycle fixie?
