The opening of the first official Meta physical store, with which you can try the metaverse, is officially close and will take place on May 9th.
On May 9, 2022 , as officially confirmed, Meta will be able to open its own physical store live, on the campus in Burlingame in California . It will be a rather particular place, in which users will be able to take a look at the future through live experiences that will allow, through the products present, to take a look at what in some time should become more and more common: the metaverse .
There is talk of products such as Portal, Ray-Ban Stories and of course the Meta Quests , with the Quest 2 that will allow you to play titles such as Beat Saber , GOLF + and Real VR , with the possibility of experimenting with products already on the market. , and which will still be sold in the stores in question for all customers interested in grabbing a device.
Martin Gilliard, Head of Meta Store, discussed the issue in this way, as you can read through our translation:
The Meta Store will help people connect to how our products can be the transition to the metaverse in the future. We won’t be selling the metaverse in our stores, but hopefully people will find out more about how they can connect to it through our products.
The company’s goal is to give users a glimpse of its products, thus showing them a taste of the future, with the goal that remains to make the concept of metaverse easier for the general public. The store will be open from 11 in the morning to 18 in the afternoon , with customers who will be able to try the devices and buy them directly from the stores, except for the Ray-Ban Stories, which will not in fact be purchasable.
