Global online tech retailer supports downtown Los Angeles tech-infused micro amusement park
CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#dyinglight2–Newegg Commerce, Inc. (NASDAQ: NEGG) a leading global technology e-commerce retailer, today announced its support and sponsorship of the Augmented Gallery at Two Bit Circus, a tech-infused micro amusement park with virtual reality, arcade games, classic carnival games and story rooms, located in downtown Los Angeles.
Newegg donated and installed 10 43-inch Samsung The Frame 4K QLED TVs mounted vertically on individual easels to display digital artwork of the modern era. On those screens within the Augmented Gallery, near the entrance of the 50,000 square-foot space, guests can view augmented reality, animations and NFTs with an emphasis on philanthropic ventures.
As a tech e-commerce retailer, Newegg and its customers are highly interested in the future of technology, including topics like web3, the metaverse and NFTs.
“We’re partnering with Two Bit Circus because they’ve created an exciting, fun space with a focus on the future of technology. They’re leveraging high-end technology in an entertaining and interesting way while also operating as a micro amusement park with food and beverages,” said Drew Roder, Director of Studios for Newegg. “The topics of web3, the metaverse and NFTs are equally impactful to us so it’s exciting to see an environment that explores this new technology with a creative, immersive experience.”
Newegg’s global headquarters are about 20 miles east of Two Bit Circus’ location so the partnership also made sense from a geographical perspective.
“The Augmented Gallery is a great way to showcase exciting projects emerging from the web3 space,” said Brent Bushnell, chairman and co-founder of Two Bit Circus. “Our inaugural exhibition ‘web3 for good’ highlights applications of DAOs, NFTs and DeFi to fundraising, storytelling and managing positive change. We are grateful for Newegg’s role to make the Augmented Gallery a reality.”
With Two Bit Circus, Bushnell has made an impact on the future-focused entertainment technology space, much like his father, gaming and entertainment center icon Nolan Bushnell, did decades earlier.
Along with the Augmented Gallery, Newegg is also sponsoring Two Bit Circus’ monthly web3 meetup events, which highlight leading topics and expert speakers.
