Apple released photos of its new work-in-progress Cupertino campus, and more importantly, a detailed look at its saucer section. Honestly, I’ve seen better saucers in my day.
The new photos came in a sprawling Mashable feature about construction on Apple’s so-called spaceship of a new office. It’s made of 44 identical radial panels and will servce as the roof of a theater, where Apple will announce the iPhone 9 or MacBook Ultra Pro or whatever overpriced gadgets it plans to sell next. And while the 80-ton carbon fiber disk might be an architectural marvel, it’s basically in last place when it comes to saucers that can actually fly. Obviously, there’s a big huge crane holding Apple’s saucer in the air and no evidence that includes jet engines or anything that would allow it to levitate on its own.
