As the holiday shopping season gears up, Best Buy has created an interactive Intel experience to showcase the hottest technology on the market. The Intel Technology Experience Zone immerses users into the versatility of the Intel products. From 3D printing technology to music/video editing on the laptop, these electronics can do more than just surf the web.
The biggest obstacle when pursuing new technology is the lack of access to the fun, exciting items that are hyped in the media. According to a new study by Intel and Toluna, 79% of Americans are excited about the chance to learn and try new technologies. The Intel Technology Experience Zone brings the latest technology into the hands of the user.
Located in 50 Best Buy stores in major markets, 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. Both technology savvy and the technology challenged will feel comfortable in this interactive space.
Staffed by specially trained Best Buy Blue Shirts to answer questions and help, the Intel Technology Experience is the perfect interactive way to showcase the power of Intel. Intel is the technology behind these new, innovative activities but also powers the tablets and laptops that everyone uses on a daily bases.
Some of the fun interactive activities in the Intel Technology Experience include building and printing their own 3D robot, showing off their racing skills on Mars in an augmented reality world, mastering beats and remixing tracks by Ne-Yo as a digital DJ, and checking out the latest PC and tablet devices powered by Intel processors.
Recently, my children and I experienced the Intel Technology Experience for ourselves. Two highlights were the Mars Rover game and the Ne-Yo digital DJ.
For busy, on the go types, a tablet isn't a luxury; it has become a necessity. Beyond checking emails or social media, tablets offer a great source for gaming. The Mars Rover experience, part of the Best Buy Intel Technology Experience, makes gaming fast paced, multi-faceted experience. From shooting the code to unlock the game to moving the rover across the board, the game engages the user from the beginning.
The other favorite part of the Intel Technology Experience was the Ne-Yo digital DJ. With the ability to add and remove parts of the song, the kids believed that they were their own composer. The process to add, delete, increase and decrease sounds was simple to understand yet the effect was impressive. Giving the home user at any age the ability to showcase their creativity is a tremendous benefit of the Intel technology.
