This is not an April Fool's joke, he was going at it for a while. I merely saw pictures at his Twitter today:
Danny is an interesting guy. He started out as a fellow animeblogger, but managed to build an impressive website empire, a portal beyond a mere anime blog like this one. From there, he poked at various pursuits, even tried to make an anime (called "Chinka"). When that failed, as did Mirai Millenium, he rode the popularity of his website's mascot, Mirai, into making little figurines of her. These figurines presently mutated into a 3/4 size sexbot, er, "smart doll". I expect that Mirai has greater intelligence than Furby by now. You can help to bring about this new future by buying his wares.
