Report: Apple employees can’t stop banging their heads against the walls

Employees at Apple’s brand new Apple Park ‘Spaceship’ campus are the masterminds behind some of the world’s most advanced consumer technology.

So it’s almost comforting to know that they, just like the rest of us, are capable of clumsily walking into plate glass partitions while looking at their iPhones.

According to a Bloomberg report and our favourite ‘Friday story’ in a while, Apple workers are making habit of walking into the panes of glass at their new offices.

The report says distracted Applers, often with heads buried in their iPhones, are bumping into the glass pods used to separate work spaces.

Some of the staff have taken to sticking Post-It notes, or marking the glass as a literal heads-up.

Ship happens

The campus in Cupertino, named for its extraterrestrial-style design, also has 45-foot high curved glass windows surrounding the entire building.

The pods are designed to encourage more open and social working than the traditional, stifling office cubicle. They are designed to foster collaboration among the 13,000 Apple employees the building houses.

“While it is a technical marvel to make glass at this scale, that’s not the achievement,” Jony Ive told Wired after the opening last year.

“The achievement is to make a building where so many people can connect and collaborate and walk and talk.”

The estimated cost for the project is around $5 billion, which is about 2 days worth of Apple revenue.
