Apple's genius employees keep running into glass walls

Employees, including those injured, haven't spoken publicly about the incident as Apple maintains a tight non-disclosure policy. The execution has reportedly gone so well that engineers are running right into the state-of-the-art glass that shapes the building.

Bloomberg's Mark Bergen reports on a flaw at Apple's new headquarters: Distracted employees seem to keep smacking their faces into the flawless glass panes that make up the offices' interior workspaces, and they're hurting themselves, "according to people familiar with the incidents". "He intended Apple Park to be the home of innovation for generations to come", Apple CEO Tim Cook said past year. And therein lies the problem- Apple employees keep crashing into the fancy glass windows, which calls into the question the safety of the design.

The campus in Cupertino, named for its extraterrestrial-style design, also has 45-foot high curved glass windows surrounding the entire building. Apple staff are often glued to the iPhones they helped popularize. I don't expect the people designing cutting-edge hardware and software to be walking into glass walls; that's the kind of behavior I expect from birds.

Bloomberg reports staff have even used Post-It notes to mark the glass doors, but the notes were later taken down.

Housing 13,000 employees, the building might as well be seen as a true wonder where people feel they are free to connect and go as they please. They asked not to be identified discussing anything related to Apple.

Apple's latest campus has been lauded as an architectural marvel.

We all know how important design is to Apple, which could account for why they didn't put safety markings on the glass. No records were found.

In a Reuters profile past year, workers and contractors described a relentless perfectionism that went into the campus' construction. So let's dive in to see some more details on the matter.

One of the most vexing features was the doorways, which Apple wanted to be perfectly flat, with no threshold.

KTVU reached out to Apple for a comment and has not yet heard back.
