The paper reports, “Construction on a structure made of container units continued through July. Coast Guard Sector Long Island Sound took part in a conference call on July 1 with a naval architect, a marine transportation company and Michael Tierney, of Google Glass, to review the plans… The purpose of the vessel is not described in the documents, but they reveal a plan to operate the vessel in various ports, the first being New York Harbor.”

According to KPIX-TV in San Francisco, both the barges are mobile showrooms and intend to out-wow Apple Store concept.

The TV also adds that both the barges have three-level showroom as well as party deck. More to this, the barges can be assembled and disassembled quickly so that it can be moved from place to place.
