Amidst Samsung’s disappointing massive recall of the Galaxy 7, it’s state-of-the-art showroom in New York City’s Meatpacking district offers a more promising consumer experience.
The non-retail flagship is designed to offer a variety of technology-driven experiences rather than to sell products. To the beat of a live DJ, visitors can experience virtual reality, take 360° photos, and take selfies that are displayed on the theater-sized screen at the center of the store. Hungry? Grab a coffee or a snack at the café upstairs.
‘Social Galaxy’, an interactive art exhibit created by Black Egg, is an Instagram-inspired video installation that uses hashtags and photos to explore social media history and presence. Samsung technology is used to create an environment that is highly reflective and seemingly endless in space.
For the month of October, many of the experiences are Halloween-themed. You can take 360° photos in a witch hat riding a broomstick, or take a VR “Haunted Hayride”. For people who have never experienced virtual reality, this is an excellent, if spooky, introduction! And the best part is – it’s free.
