The Google shop is also planning to host regular classes and events for the public. Classes will include how to keep secure online, how their devices work and how devices connect with other devices.
The store-in-stores will also offer ‘Virtual Space Camps’ to teach children the basics of coding and teachers will be invited to “Open House” events, to keep up to speed on the free educational tools on offer from Google.
Google spokesman James Elias said: ‘We’re incredibly excited to launch this space - the first of its kind anywhere in the world - in London with Currys PC World.
‘The pace of innovation of the devices we all use is incredible, yet the way we buy them has remained the same for years. With the Google shop, we want to offer people a place where they can play, experiment and learn about all of what Google has to offer; from an incredible range of devices to a totally-connected, seamless online life.We think it’s a genuinely unique try-before-you-buy experience.”
Ainsley Sykes, senior project manager for Currys PC World, added: ‘We are delighted to partner with Google in bringing a world first retail experience to one of our stores. This will be a new and innovative way for customers to engage in store, interacting with the immersive technology as well as having fun while learning.
‘Google experts will be on hand to maximise the experience for users and provide help and support around the Google eco-system. This fantastic space compliments the interactive and informative environment we aim to create for customers visiting all of our stores.'
