With the Holidays just around there corner there is lots of shopping to be done and electronics are always a wanted item on gift lists, with tablets and laptops being hot items. I’m a touchy feely type person, so before I get a new device I like to head to Best Buy to test it out and make sure I like it. On our most recent trip to Best Buy we got to check out the Intel Experience exclusively at Best Buy and play around with some of the hottest devices and build our own 3D robot, drive a mars rover, re-mix a Ne-yo song, and check out some laptops and tablets. Not only did I have fun playing around on the devices and seeing what they could do, but it kept the kids entertained while I scouted the store looking at items to get for Christmas gifts.
While most (79%) of Americans are excited about the chance to learn and try out new technologies, half are frustrated by the lack of access to them beyond what they read or see in the media, according to a new study by Intel and Toluna.
That’s the reason why Intel and Best Buy are now teaming up to bring new Intel Technology Experience zones to 50 Best Buy stores in major markets across the U.S. The Intel Technology Experience lets customers – from tech enthusiasts to technophobes – play, explore, and be inspired by the power of technology with hands-on activities like 3D printing and virtual reality games. For many, this is the first opportunity to see, touch, and play with exciting new technologies they’ve only heard about.
Averaging 240 square feet, the Intel Technology Experience will show customers the power of Intel: the technology behind these new, innovative activities is the same power behind the devices like tablets and laptops we love and rely on every day. Customers can build and print their own 3D robot, show off their racing skills on Mars in an augmented reality world, master beats and remix tracks by Ne-Yo as a digital DJ, and check out the latest PC and tablet devices powered by Intel processors.
The area will be staffed by specially trained Best Buy Blue Shirts to answer questions and help customers make the most of each area within the experience. Each season, Intel will refresh the venues with a new array of technology experiences.
