Wired's Pop-up Shop on Regent Street

Technology magazine is always full of lots of really cool stuff...  & now you can get hands on with things like the 3D printer MakerBot, and other gadgets at their pop-up shop near the bottom of Regent Street.  You're not going to be able to 'buy' things in a way that you can walk out with them, but they'll have screens where you can buy things online from within the shop.  It's open for only six days, and they're also holding some prize draws, and some special talks and events.  Definitely worth a visit!

"Come and witness the pages of Wired's December 2012 issue come to life as we host our very own pop-up store in London's Quadrant Arcade from the 30 November to 5 December.
The store will present products, exhibits and demonstrations celebrating the concept of the "New Industrial Revolution" -- where creative thinking meets new technologies to inform manufacturing techniques, product customisation and smart business innovations.
With product exhibits including the MakerBot, ArcBotics Hexapod, Autographer, Hiut Denim and ZBoard, the Wired store will make for an altogether different shopping experience, offering a glimpse of the world in 2013. Check out the highlights from the shop's calendar below for a taste of things to come.
Bear in mind we have limited capacity and admission is on a first-come, first-served basis.
