Still other hoaxes involved inventions. In 1878 the New York Graphic indicated that Thomas Edison had invented a food machine that would transform soil directly into cereal and water into wine and thereby eradicate hunger. The article was widely printed and believed. The Graphic later printed the headline, "They Bite!" Another invention, touted in 1983 by BMW in the UK, showed that one of its engineers had designed a sunroof that could be kept open even in the rain and in a car wash, thanks to jets of air that blew the water away from the top of the car. BMW has continued its April 1 hoaxes inspiring other car manufacturers to do likewise. A third invention, dated April 1, 1973, was for an electronic memory for those inundated with computer data. In contrast to "write and read" or "read only" memories (ROM), scientists said they had invented "write only" memories, dubbed WOM. Data could be written to a device but never read back, thereby becoming part of Eternally Inaccessible Storage or EIS. Imagine if we had that for some of the tweets we've seen!
