Wired Pop-Up Store
The online Wired Store gets an offline component starting November 18th in New York's Soho (160 Wooster at Houston). Timed to coincide with the holidays, the store will feature a wide range of Wired-approved gadgets for just under six weeks, closing its doors on December 24th. Products for sale include the coveted new Motorola PEBL phone as well as over 65 others from Wired's cadre, which will be purchased via digital checkout kiosks (i.e. their website), eliminating the hassle of shopping bags. On weekends they'll provide a free Volkswagen car service to shoppers' next destinations and other events, like Flavorpill DJs and product giveaways, will occur throughout the week. And, for the person who has everything (and to benefit a good cause), a Space Adventures trip to space (valued at over $100k) will be auctioned to benefit the Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation.
