Virtual Reali-tea: Samsung 837’s Digital Playground
Like most (young) people in the world, I pledge allegiance to Apple products. They’ve aged along the years and have been there as I developed through my mid-twenties, almost like a true college friend, right? Now, with all that said, allow me to place my loyalty to the side—really quickly—to talk about Samsung. Specifically, their super cool Flagship store in the heart of Chelsea, Manhattan; Samsung 837.
Samsung 837 is a first-of-its-kind electronic repair shop meets digital playground that can absolutely double as a pre- date. You don’t need to own a Samsung device in order to experience their interactive Virtual Reality installations because it’s open to the public! The cherry on top is that it’s FREE! You read that right, exclusive events, concerts and VR games all free. Who says that you have to break the bank to date out the box? An uninformed person, obviously.
If you’re anything like me and you’re open to new interactive experiences, you’ll totally have a great time on a date at Samsung 837—with your iPhone nestled in your back pocket.
