Every year, ThinkGeek comes up with some of the most far-out (fake) products for April Fools' Day. In the past, several of these fictional items would be met with great enthusiasm by the masses that the retailer of odd devices would actually make them. And that's what a lot of people hope to happen with this year's runaway favorite April Fools' product: the iPad version of Hungry Hungry Hippos.
In the video above, you can see what the Electronic Hungry Hungry Hippos could look like if it ever becomes real — an iPad accessory designed to mimic the popular 70s tabletop game. You're supposed to install the app on the iPad, and control your hippo to chomp on as many virtual marbles as possible. If ThinkGeek ever decides to make this game with the same features posted on the fake listing, it will make a great addition to the number of apps that support the new iPad's Retina display.
