As some of you know, my family loves tech. In all honesty, it is part of our way of life with my husband being a computer engineer. We love playing with the latest technology and it’s not too uncommon for us to save just to make sure we can play with the latest game systems and computer hardware in our own home. When I heard that Best Buy was going to be teaming up with Intel on a brand new, hands-on display in 50 stores, the Intel Technology Experience Zone, I knew I had to go see it. We aren’t the only ones excited about a hands-on tech experience. According to a new study, Intel and Toluna found that 79% of Americans are excited about the chance to try out new technology, while another half are frustrated by the fact that they don’t have access to all the cool things they read about online. Since most of us have never even seen a 3D printer, that doesn’t surprise me at all.
So, what exactly is the Intel Technology Experience Zone? It is a 240 square foot displayer that allows people like you and me to play, explore, and be inspired by technology we may have never seen otherwise, like 3D printers and augmented reality games. Using the power of Intel technology, (similar hardware to those used in our tablets and laptops), you can build 3D robots, show off your racing skills on Mars in an augmented reality world, pretend to be a digital DJ, and check out the latest and greatest new devices that are powered by Intel processors.
Being the tech geek that I am, too, I couldn’t help but be awed when I saw the processor display. While this sheet may look like just a round sheet of silvery metal, it is so much more. These were dozens of PROCESSORS! That’s right, the same processors that are in our computers or tablets, uncut and in a beautifully pure form. I mean, what geek wouldn’t want THAT mounted in their office?
After spending some time at the Intel display, I have to say that it was a fun, hands-on experience, as promised. This isn’t just something for tech geeks like me, but anyone. With how they have this display designed, kids of all ages can enjoy this digital playground. The only thing I was disappointed about was that I wish we could have one of those cool 3D printers in our own home!
