A few years ago, Google Glass was the hot news story. Today, Apple Glass is more notorious. Unlike Google Glass, which Google hoped would change the way people saw the world (it didn't), Apple Glass is causing nightmares (and headaches) as employees can't see it.
In April of '17, Apple moved into their new brand spanking new campus in Cupertino, California. The "Infinite Loop" design is one of the late Steve Jobs' lasting influences on the company he founded. The open, modern design is stunning. It's also made mostly of glass. And that glass is wreaking havoc on Apple employees who often walk around like many of the rest of us, with their eye on their iPhone instead of where they are walking -- which is into glass. A lot.
Looking at pictures, it's easy to see why the HQ is so popular and also why it is so clearly dangerous. It's basically see-thru everywhere you look. The office are clear, the conference rooms are clear and the flagship product of the company, the iPhone, is the ultimate distracter. It's a dangerous combination.
So far, at least 4 people have gone to the hospital. One has to wonder, is all this why Apple is opening their own health clinic in the new HQ? Probably not, but at least people won't have to go far for their stitches.
Maybe they just need to put some stickers on the walls, like my mother did with the sliding glass door out the porch when I was a kid.
