With all the problems and design flaws that Apple is currently dealing with, it pays to wonder what the cause behind them all is. Could it be that vital Apple employees are suffering from concussions after walking into glass doors or walls? It has been reported that workers have been bumping into the many glass panes found in the Apple Park corporate headquarters.
The structure in Cupertino, California has a neo-futuristic architectural style; Steve Jobs compared it to looking like a landed spaceship. Workers at Apple Park are surrounded by glass-paned corridors and carry out their duties in workspaces known as “pods,” which also feature a lot of glass in their design. Considering a lot of these workers are naturally busy with ironing out all the latest issues with iOS or dealing with battery problems, it's understandable that they become quite distracted. A combination of distracted employees and glass-lined buildings is a recipe for frequent headaches.
Steps have been taken to try to cut down on these accidents. Apparently, Post-It notes were initially used to help remind Apple technicians that they were approaching a glass wall or door, but these were taken down as they interrupted with the building’s overall design language. Perhaps Apple can release an app in its store for workers warning them of impending head/glass wall interactions?
