The Intel Experience:a hands on exclusive of the powers of Intel Only at Best Buy!

     Best Buy is teaming up with Intel Technology to give the Intel Experience!

I was really excited when I found out that I was going to be able to try out, the Intel Experience at Best Buy. According to a recent survey 79% of Americans are excited to try new technology. I am definitely one of them. I want the latest smartphone, laptop, and gadgets. Sometimes my wallet doesn't agree with me. But like half of those people surveyed, who love trying new technology.  I get frustrated because I read such great reviews about a product, but I do not get to try it. Seeing a great review always makes me want to try it more. And most people agree. 

Being in the Chicago Metropolitan area means that I am located between to of the Best Buy locations, one in Downers Grove and one in Gurnee. But even if your not located near those locations. Best Buy has a total of 50 stores in major markets for you to experience the power of Intel for yourself. 

What types of things can you do at the Intel Experience?

  • Build and print your own 3D robot.
  • Race on Mars in an Augmented reality world.
  • Remix music  and master beats as a digital DJ.

For this blog I went to the Best Buy at 1432 Butterfield rd in Downers Grove IL. This was my first time there. I was able to find the Intel Experience easily. I could not wait to try it all out.

This was digital DJ zone. I got to see what its like to mix music to the sounds of NEYO. After trying it I will not be becoming a DJ any time soon. Its harder then I thought. But it was a ton of fun to try.

Well Im never going to join NASA so this is the second best thing. I got to experience what its like to drive on Mars. I really wish I had come with my Son he would have loved this exhibit most. I plan on coming back with the family.

This was my favorite part of the Intel Experience. Printing your own 3D robot. I didn't even know that you could buy a 3D printer at Best Buy. I thought they were a lot more expensive then $999. I love that they are accessible to everyone now. I was shocked at the vibrant colors of the items you can produce. I was expecting a basic white or grey, but as you can see by my next photo. The colors stand out. What can u make besides the Robot? They had Iphone cases and small baskets on display. And the plastic they are made out of is shockingly sturdy.
