The pictures are definitely photoshopped. The tone and shading of the buttons and indicators don't match the rest of image. Even if it were true, shimano wouldn't have such a 'finished' prototype at this stage. Also, the linguistics of the interview in the article don't make sense.

April fools. :lol:
