  • Apple CEO Tim Cook tweeted a gif of the giant sliding doors at Apple Park.
  • The footage adds weight to the headquarters’ “spaceship” monicker.
  • Previous aerial footage of Apple Park show the doors and lunch area under construction.

Apple’s giant new headquarters in Cupertino, California, is nicknamed the “spaceship” – and Tim Cook’s latest peak behind the curtain only backs up this monicker.

The Apple CEO tweeted a gif of Apple Park’s giant motorised sliding doors, with the caption: “Lunchtime at Apple Park just got a whole lot more exciting.” Here are the doors in action:

The gif is from a timelapse video, meaning the actual speed the doors move at is probably much slower, but you’d still be forgiven for thinking it resembles something from a sci-fi movie.

Below is a closer look at the doors, captured in aerial footage of Apple Park uploaded to YouTube in June.
