In a recent interview, well-known French designer Philippe Starck hinted that a “revolutionary” new Apple product is set to be launched in the next eight months.
Starck recently had a chat with radio station French Info, so obviously we have to go on a sketchy translation to figure out exactly what he was banging on about, but according to HardMac and Apple Insider, he said, “Indeed, there is a big project together which will be out in eight months” and hinted that it is set to be “revolutionary.” However, he then went on to say that Apple’s “religious cult of secrecy” made it impossible for him to reveal anymore details. Alright Starck, don’t hold back will you.
Since news of the interview broke there’s been a fair amount of speculation about what Starck could be up working on over at Apple HQ, with many hinting at an Apple TV or an innovative new design for the next model of the iPhone. Starck’s experience to date has been wide and varied, he’s been involved in packaging design, vehicles, furniture, interiors, hell even windmills. Argh is this the first step towards the iWindmill!? We can only dream.[Via Apple Insider]
