Following last Friday’s Apple press conference addressing the recent reception issues with the Apple iPhone 4, a select few media outlets were given a tour of a highly secretive aspect of Apple headquarters. Within Apple’s compound are a series of 17 anechoic chambers comprised of bright blue spikes (made of foam) which are meant to create an interference-less space for testing purposes. Among the 17 rooms is a special room dubbed “Stargate” which includes a ring similar to that seen from the movie of the same name. While the issues with the iPhone 4 are very real, the rooms do represent an interesting look into the often secretive world of Apple and their dedication to getting things right.
