Take in Apple’s massive new spaceship campus site via drone

To get a true appreciation for how massive Apple’s new UFO-shaped campus will be, a drone equipped with a GoPro was flown over the construction site.

We’ve seen some aerial pictures of the site beginning to take shape as work begins on Campus 2, but this is by far the coolest look yet.

As you can see in the video, the foundation for the circular walls is being worked on, and the basic layout of the campus is starting to become more visible.

Campus 2 was one of the last major projects spearheaded by Steve Jobs, and he recruited legendary architect Norman Foster to design the site.

Some of the amenities in the new campus will be gardens, miles of bike paths, a state of the art gym, an underground parking garage, and subterranean theater for hosting media events. Most importantly, Campus 2 will provide one place for all of Apple’s thousands of corporate employees to work together. Apple has vastly outgrown its current home on Infinite Loop and has been resorting to renting office space all throughout the Cupertino, California area.

What the finished product will look like.

Construction on Campus 2 began earlier this year, and Apple hopes to move in by mid-2016.

    The aerial video was very well done, smooth and crisp, unlike many amateur vids I see on the web. What kind of drone and camera were used for this shoot?
