The Chi Wallet -- April Fool's Day, 2013
CrowdSupply.com, an online "store and crowdfunding platform," debuted the Chi Wallet, available in models ranging in price from $29 to $250.

"We introduce to you today the Chi Wallet. Chi is transformative, inspiring, and yet disruptive. Born from natural rubber trees, lovingly caressed, sustainably harvested. Its namesake is the longest river in Thailand where its essence originates, even though the Mun, the second longest river in Thailand, actually carries more water. Be one of the first on the planet to enjoy the liberation and freedom of Chi. It's the last wallet you'll ever buy."

The Chi Wallet looked a great deal like a rubber band.
