Inspiration Gained Through Intel Technology Experience Zones at Best Buy
One of my favorite stores to shop in is Best Buy! Most recently, I discovered a part of Best Buy I had never seen before. The Best Buy store we visited had a section with hands-on products we could play with by Intel. It was pretty awesome!
Did you know that 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? This is according to a new study by Intel and Toluna. That’s why Intel and Best Buy are 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 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 tables 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. They can also check out the latest PC and tablet devices powered by Intel processors.
When we visited, there was a staff member there to greet us and answer any questions we had. When you visit, you’ll find the area 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. It’s a pretty awesome experience overall!
