Apple's event is still a few minutes off, but the company is already showing off the first new product: its Apple Park campus. Known during its years of construction as "the spaceship," today's event is the first public look at the new 175-acre corporate campus.

Media and guests are in the Steve Jobs Theater at the visitor's center that sits just outside the ring-shaped, 2.8 million-square-foot main building. For a more complete look at what's inside that part of the campus, here's the big feature Wired's Steven Levy did earlier this year.

The bottom line: There is a lot of glass here. And it's so pristine that one guest cut his eye open by walking into one of the glass walls as he exited the restroom.
