Experiencing technology at Santa Clara and the Apple Visitor Center in Cupertino – Report
From 13 to 16 May 2019 JCommerce is an exhibitor at the Internet of Things World Conference in the USA. The event is the biggest conference of its type dedicated to IoT, the cutting-edge technology which is significantly changing our lives thanks to its innovative solutions. Our JTeam of Anna, Przemek and Igor are taking part in the event to find out more about IoT and to network with exhibitors and listen to speakers from all over the world. We have not only had the opportunity to participate in the IoT event, but also to visit Cupertino.
Whenever Europeans think about Cupertino, there is one thing which comes to mind almost immediately: the Apple Visitor Center. As we are taking part in the conference in Santa Clara, we jumped at the opportunity to visit Cupertino, a stone’s throw from the Santa Clara Convention Center.
It is widely known that Apple invests lots of funds in design and marketing, which is easy to notice once we are on campus and observe the surroundings. Here technology becomes a real experience thanks to solutions provided by Apple, with Virtual Reality technology just one such example. Visiting the campus is also an extraordinary experience, since dedicated applications allow us to learn more about the natural landform of the area and to get to know the Apple Park better.
An interesting fact is that solar panels are the main source of energy, which makes the campus one of the most energy-efficient buildings, not only in the USA, but also in the whole world. After such a presentation it is hardly possible to pass by Apple devices and gadgets in the Apple Store without a feeling of excitement. Przemek seized the opportunity to test the newest version of the GarageBand Application on the iPad, which is paired with a huge beacon and an excellent sound system.
Apple technology is all around us. While driving by San Jose, which is home to the San Jose Sharks ice hockey team, we saw an enormous shark photo, taken – of course – with an iPhone, as a part of the Earth Shot cycle.
