Lyft Mono April Fools' Wearable Allows Autonomous Ride Hailing

Lyft Apparently pranked its own self with its “own” April fool’s Trick . Lyft introduced a robotic looking wearable thumb gadget which apparently is off no use.

Lyft which is a famous ride hailing company loved to play tricks on April fool’s day. They have conjured a number of tricks in the past. Some of them were hilarious while the others, not so much!

This year Lyft again tried out doing its self with a new trick. The company just unveiled a wearable thumb device that will actually bring about the concept of automatic ride hailing. The company will make sure that any person gets the desired car with the motion of their thumb.

However it is not going to work as it is a very dubious kind of trick. The idea of April fool’s day is to subject the people in to believing something that is not entirely true. However Lyft invested so much in this new trick that it has actually become more than a little dumb trick.

A video was also revealed by Lyft which showcases this device named Mono. It has a number of lights on it. The LED lights are activated if someone lifts the thumb in order to find a lift. After that it starts blinking if the ride is on its way and starts pulsating when it is about to arrive.

All of these can be experienced because Mono has been given its own app. The app will connect the user to their Lyft account. Well it certainly looks that Lyft has dedicated a lot of money for something that is nothing but a trick.

This looks nothing but the waste of money as only a handful of these Mono gloves will be made. Lyft is arranging a party today to officially introduce the glove on April fool’s occasion too.
