Google Glass Micro-Stores Coming to a Best Buy Near You Next Year
Easily one of the most hotly anticipated pieces of consumer gadgetry since the original iPhone has got to be Google Glass, but it is inherently one of those pieces of technology that has to be experienced to be truly understood. And that’s why Google is reportedly going on an all-out effort next year to showcase Google Glass at Best Buy stores across the country.
If you walk into any given Best Buy today, you’ll already see the “store within a store” concept being implemented by companies like Microsoft and Apple. Google wants to do the same thing to show off the US-made Google Glass. Robert Scoble is saying that the big G will be renting 6,000 square feet to do this. Google isn’t new to Best Buy — you can buy the Nexus 7 and Chromecast there, assuming you find stock — but this would be its first huge marketing push inside of a brick-and-mortar store.
What do you think of Google Glass? Will you be using the web browser and video player with the rest of us nerds, or do you think this whole “smart” eyewear thing is just too creepy?
