Today in awesome, a new Apple Store is being built in Chicago, and the roof is an oversized MacBook. Like, extremely oversized.
Video of the Day
The roof on the new building in downtown Chicago (Pioneer Court, 401 N. Michigan Ave) is silver and the shape of a rectangle, making it look very similar to a MacBook. But it's the giant Apple logo that a construction crew laid on top of it that made it look like the popular Apple laptop.
DNA Chicago reports that the logo only stayed up for an hour before it was taken down. Perhaps they were just testing it before some sort of big unveiling.
Back in March, the Chicago Tribune described how the unusual roof was made. "The roof is made from a lightweight material used in yacht hulls to keep it thin — four feet thick at its widest point and four inches at its narrowest, with an Apple logo on top."
Here's a video of the construction crew trying to line up the logo perfectly, only to take it down shortly after.
Apple hasn't announced when the grand opening of the store will be, but it's already making waves — that's for sure. If you've ever wondered what it would feel like to be inside a MacBook, you know where to go.
