Best Buy Live! is Coming to Digital Downtown
Best Buy has announced that its Best Buy Live! Exhibit will be featured as part of Digital Downtown, the new technology showcase scheduled for June 12-14, 2008. The event, organized in association with the Consumer Electronics Association, the producer of International CES, will be held at the World Financial Center in the New York City Financial District.
“This year’s Best Buy Live! exhibit showcases products that will change the way consumers interact with technology; they are not necessarily products that you can buy at a Best Buy today,” the company’s senior manager for event marketing, Jim Lawrence, said as part of the announcement. “This is our vision of the future of consumer electronics and, as such, we will be providing consumers with their first-ever views of what’s coming and how it will improve their lives.”
The Best Buy Live! exhibit, which is touring the country this summer, will feature various technologies of the near future, including videogames without controllers, wireless power, a 77” computer wall and even an electronic mindreader.
