During today’s conference, Apple showed the public one of the creepiest places we’ve ever seen. It’s the $100 million testing facility built for their iPhone product line.

It has 17 anechoic chambers which means that there are no echo’s in this room. Kind of a strange thought when you stop to realize that a lot of our sense of what’s around us comes from the sounds we hear. Imagine being in a totally silent room like this one, with no natural echos around you.

These rooms are where iPhones are tested by 18 PhD scientists and enginners. Jobs said is the biggest room of the Apple campus.
