An artist uses this concern to fool the people of San Francisco, California by placing around 20 life-sized AirPod stickers in the city
Apple & # 39; s AirPod are small white earbuds that start at $ 159 for the pair – and losing them will certainly ruin someone's day.
But artist and digital creative, Rochat, had some fun with this fear by printing a lot of life-size AirPod, placing them on the ground in San Francisco and watching people's reactions.
& # 39; I live in San Francisco, where a lot of people wear AirPods, & # 39; Rochat told DailyMail.com in an email.
& # 39; They are easy to drop or lose, so I thought it was fun to overdo that problem by placing a number of fake Airpod stickers on the floor. & # 39;
Pablo Rochat, the brain behind the hoax, said some people were amused by the sticker earplugs, while others got irritated and confused after they realized they were just stickers
He has placed around 15 to 20 stickers on the floor, streets, trains, and other places in the city – but told DailyMail.com that more could be released soon.
& # 39; That's the best part. I love putting AirPod stickers on the floor and looking back to see people trying to pick them up, & he said.
& # 39; Most people would see it, do a double take and just walk on.
& # 39; Several people stopped and tried to pick it up, but got a little irritated and confused when they realized it was a sticker. & # 39;

Rochat said he started this hoax during a lunch break when he went outside and started placing the stickers on Market Street. They have also found their way to public trains
This joke came together with the AirPod high-resolution images, a printer and some sticker paper.

He has also shared the sticker template on his website that people can view and print for free – there is also a template for the new AirPod Pro earbuds.
Apple last month released its next-generation set of AirPods, called AirPods Pro, with noise reduction and immersive sound functionality.
Users can choose from three different sizes for a more personal fit with flexible silicone ear tips that meet the contours of each individual ear.
AirPods Pro can be ordered from the tech giant's website for $ 249 – almost $ 60 more than its predecessor.
They are also smaller and tighter than the original model.
