Hands on Tech with Intel Experience at Best Buy

Best Buy Intel Experience with 3D printer and blue robot

Many years before I became a Best Buy blogger our family would head to Best Buy because we simply had the opportunity to actually try out the products we were interested in to see if they were a good fit for us. The hands on approach with the Intel Experience at Best Buy has further enhanced their ability to provide customers a chance to try out technology for themselves.

Only 240 square feet contain four different areas to interact and get a hands on experience with many products never seen before.

Located at 50 stores nationwide, the Intel Experience at Best Buy gives techies and even those scared by tech the opportunity to play.

Watching a working 3D printer create a robot is a cool experience to actually see the finished product and feel how sturdy it is. Unfortunately the samples are not for sale and used just for display but they are incredibly durable for children to play with and adults to marvel at how far tech has transformed our world.

Once you learn just some of the cool creations a 3D printer can make you just might start imagining what you will use it for when you bring one home.
