Apple is a highly secretive company. That part is not much of a secret. And I have to tell you that it is seriously frustrating to have a company working on some of the world’s most exciting products remain so close mouthed about them. All we have to rely upon are leaks and snippets and so on and one such leak has recently made its way to us.
As per Gizmodo, the website has managed to get its hands upon a secret document that details several ongoing Apple projects that ae as exciting as anything. As per the platform:
An incident report compiled by an Environment Health and Safety contractor working for Apple mistakenly sent to hundreds of Apple employees and leaked to Gizmodo includes tantalizing clues about some of the new products the notoriously secretive tech company may be cooking up. The report includes over 70 different incidents.
Here are some of the issues that were recorded. We will let you be the judge of their authenticity and of what they could imply.
After BT4 user study, user advised study lead, that she experienced discomfort in her eye and said she was able to see the laser flash at several points during the study. Study lead referred her to optometrist and secured prototype unit for analysis.
Employee reported eye pain after working with new prototype, thought it may be associated with use. He noticed that the security seal on the magenta (outer) case had been broken and had thought the unit may have been tampered with.
Well, eye pain after working with the new prototype? It sure isn’t a car that is being discussed here. It appears that Apple has inadvertently given others insight into its fabled Apple Glass program. If this report is true, it could also confirm rumors that the Apple Glass is still at least a year away from launch.
A reference was also found to Apple Pencils.
Employee was opening a box of used Apple Pencils in [room number redacted]. As soon as she opened the box, a strong odor emanated from within the box. The employee, who is familiar with lithium battery odors, identified two Pencils as the odor source. She suspected the Pencils were leaking electrolyte.
There was also a mention of employees injured during the course of various duties. One of the employees was also stuck by a minivan (supposedly one which collects data for Apple’s self-driving car project), while another suffered a swollen toe from dropping something on it.
While I am sure these injuries were all carefully tended to, the projects mentioned here are seriously intriguing. I mean we know how Apple hankers after perfection, so if it actually is working on AR technology or glasses of some sort, you can bet that they are going to be good. We will continue digging on the matter and in the meanwhile, you can read the full report here.
