Apple founder Steve Wozniak is up to something. But we don’t really know what, because he’s not quite ready to reveal everything.
The 71-year-old tech guy recently chirp: “I started a private space company unlike other companies.” The obscure post included an equally mysterious video that promised so much but gave so little.
The serious narrator, featuring a collection of what look like videos and a thrilling soundtrack, says, “Together, we’ll go far. We’ll find each other and solve problems together. This isn’t a race. It’s not a contest or a game. We’re not one person, one company, one nation.” We are one planet.”
The narrator began to sound like an ad that Apple might have dropped in decades past, which warms the narrator to his subject: “We are explorers. We are dreamers and daredevils and engineers and stargazers. We are human beings, and it is up to us to work together to do right and good. So here’s the concern. with what we have so that the next generation is better together.”
The video ends with: “The sky is no longer the limit.”
Privateer Space, as the new company is called, is the brainchild of Wozniak and longtime friend/collaborator Alex Fielding of robotic digitization company Ripcord. And Fielding happens to be a former Apple engineer.
Publicity accompanying the video says that Privateer Space is “working to keep space safe and available to all of humanity,” leading some to speculate that the new project may be geared toward cleaning up all of the pesky space junk currently orbiting Earth. We certainly can’t see it being another space tourism service along the lines of Virgin Galactic and Blue Origin.
So when is the husband going to pour the beans? Well, it looks like the big reveal will come at the AMOS Tech 2021 conference, which runs from September 14-17 in Maui, Hawaii. We’ll make sure to update as soon as we know more.
