iBuyPower and TigerDirect team up for April Fools Day Prank product called OrigamiBook

iBuyPower is a company that makes all sorts of customized notebooks and desktops for gaming and computer enthusiasts. TigerDirect is one of the most popular places you can go to buy computers, PC hardware, and other gadgets. Today being April Fools Day, you can bet that prank products are floating around everywhere.

One of those prank products comes from both these companies and is called the OrigamiBook. This is one of those products that I would totally buy if it were real. The machine is said to be a 1.8-pound ultrabook with a screen that can stretch from 11.6-inches to 37.9-inches using fold out panels. The specs also call for up to ten external monitors.

Hardware is said to be 512GB of RAM, and some sort of gaming Ethernet controller, 3D touch compatibility, and more. Clearly the more you read the description, the more it sounds like a fake product. I wish this thing could be like the pranks ThinkGeek has pulled over the years that were so popular they ended up becoming real products.

“Innovation is a buzzword that’s thrown around the industry in just about every scenario. Forget innovation. iBUYPOWER wanted to launch something totally out of the ordinary, and so we thought, people love ginormous screens so why not deliver it in the form of a notebook? The ORIGAMIbook is in a class of its own, because literally, no one else would want to make something like this. But for those who want to be different, this is it — be the envy of all coffee-shop hipsters,” said Darren Su, Vice President and origami enthusiast.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
