Bangalore: Apple products are admired for their sheer designs. By designs it means everything from exterior looks that catch yours eye balls to interior hardware that gives joys of a superbike ride. As all the nice things come with the antecedent stories that tell about their evolution; Apple’s designs are no exception. Read on to know the Apple’s most audacious product designs from Apple I to latest iPhone that spans the period 1976 to 2012.      



#15 Apple I: 1976



It was in the spring of 1976 that Apple released the Apple I, and it is the first product to come out of their company housed in a garage. This personal computer was designed and hand built by Steve Wozniak. The project was financed by Steve Jobs by selling his VW van and Wozniak, by selling his HP-65 calculator. It was demonstrated in July 1976 at the Homebrew Computer Club in Palo Alto, California.



Unlike other hobbyist computers of its day, which were sold as kits, the Apple I was a fully assembled circuit board containing about 60+ chips. The Apple I's built-in computer terminal circuitry was distinctive— all one needed was a keyboard and an inexpensive television set. This made the Apple I an innovative machine for its day.



"The evolution of the Apple Mac computers is a timeline of Silicon Valley," says Silicon Valley graphic designer Steve Yamaguma of Design2Market.
