The High Tech Apple Watch’s Low Tech Beginnings
Last month Apple CEO Tim Cook officially announced the Apple Watch in California and the world has been waiting to get their hands on it ever since, especially for the groundbreaking technology that Apple has been known for over the years. Apple has already became the dominant force in the MP3 player, tablet and cell phone markets, so it would be a great guess that the wearable market would be next.
For the level of technology that goes into the new Apple Watch it was quite surprising to everyone when an article in Wired recently revealed that the original working watch prototype was an iPhone equipped with a Velcro strap. This was the prototype that Apple’s newly appointed VP of Tech Kevin Lynch presented with the goal of freeing people from their phones, which is very ironic. This is a testament to the strength and confidence people have in Velcro and shows how Velcro with a bit of imagination can create great things, so get some Velcro today and let’s see what you can create.
