Intel and Best Buy are now teaming up to bring new Intel Technology Experience Zones to 50 Best Buy stores and I was fortunate enough to experience this at the West Los Angeles store recently. The Intel display offers you hands-on experience zones that gives everyone the opportunity to explore and play with the latest cutting-edge technologies. It doesn’t matter if you are a newbie just learning how to navigate some of the new technology out there or a tech geek, there is something for everyone. It is a great way to see, touch and engage with the latest products.
Most Americans are excited about learning and trying out new technologies but are frustrated by the lack of access to them beyond what they read or see in the media. This “mini store” averages about 240 square feet and is primed for showing customers the power of Intel. The area is staffed by specially trained Best Buy Blue Shirts to answer questions and help customers make the most of each area within the experience.
Be sure and stop by the Mars Escape and show off your racing skills on Mars in an augmented reality world. You will use a powerful Intel-powered pad where you can design a Mars Rover and navigate your virtual space rover through the rugged Mars landscape. Make sure you bring a friend!
3 -D Printing Experience
Using a touch-enabled, Inter-powered laptop, you will be able to design your own 3-D model of a robot and experience 3-D printing. Pretty cool stuff!
If you are a budding musical artist than this zone is for you! With this Intel-powered 2 in 1 device, you will become a digital DJ and remix singer-song writer Ne-Yo’s tracks and create a full-stage experience right down to controlling the stage lights.
The Latest Products
There is also a zone where you can experience the latest laptops, 2 in 1 devices and tablets powered by Intel processors.
The Intel Technology Experience Zones at Best Buy will never become outdated. Each season, Intel will refresh the venues with a new array of technology experiences. Now that is something to really look forward to!
