Apple has been the world’s blue-chip company at the forefront of innovation in the past few years. The company has been at the leading edge of many new products that have sent many jaws dropping around the world from ApplePay that would make credit cards obsolete to other products that can revolutionize the world.
Apple recently came out with the concept of a smart and fully electric car called AppleCar. This comes at the heels of another leading edge blue chip company, Google, that introduced a driverless car last year. Google’s driverless car is the answer to tomorrow’s high transportation cost as it will do away with the driver just as much as technology has displaced cashiers at the convenience store. Of course in India, it may bring an increased level of security to the lady customers as an increase in the number of cab drivers raping their female passengers have been reported in recent times.

According to the technology column of the Wall Street Journal on 13th of February, and reported in Times, Apple’s new project for a smart car has been codenamed ‘Titan‘. The company’s foray into intelligent concept car is not surprising since Google has one and also the company is sitting on a huge cash hordes which gives it the laxity to spend lots of money on new pet projects.
The Journal also said that Apple has a few hundred engineers specifically dedicated to the project and has brought in a star designer, Marc Newson to spearhead it. Details of the project is still murky but the Journal has hinted that the design of the car is something like a mini-van type with all the latest trappings of an intelligent concept car.
