Winter pop-up stores will showcase Google-based products
Google has opened up a total of six pop-up shops across the United States, which it calls the "Winter Wonderlab." The temporary stores are meant to promote Google's own devices, as well as those heavily associated with the company, with the centerpiece being large snow globes that can record slow-motion video of attendees surrounded by digital snow.
Items such as the Google Nexus 7 and the Chromecast HDTV dongle will be on display, as well as a selection of Chromebooks and demonstrations of Google Play services. The Winter Wonderlab website mentions that, just like the Intel pop-up stores, customers will be able to order devices, though it is not clear if deliveries will be to homes or will be available for later pick-up at the store itself.
The Winter Wonderlab is located in areas of New York City, Washington DC, Chicago, Los Angeles, New Jersey, and Sacramento.
