Intel Technology Experience' Zones to Bring Access to Inspiration at Best Buy @BestBuy #IntelatBestBuy @bestbuyWOLF

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

The Intel Experience is in Select BestBuy's across the U.S.  I was excited to be able to go to the Annapolis, Maryland Bestbuy to experience the 3-D Printing of a Rose! The Cube 3-D Printer is the future. I think it's amazing that we are able to see technology advance so rapidly.  Definitely worth the time to go check out the Intel Experience for yourself.

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.

I also learned what Augmented Reality is. What is Augmented Reality?

Augmented Reality technology superimposes digital images onto the real objects seen through a devices camera in real time.  The Intel' Processors inside these tablets provide the power to merge the digital and physical worlds, changing the way we work, and live.

It can turn floors, walls, and ceilings into racecourses, and environments for video games.  Navigate a new city, tour a museum, it can even locate your parking spot with digital guides. It can also show how new furniture can look in your home before even buying it.

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.
