Google, NYC

Google is launching a New York pop-up for the holidays to show off its "Made by Google" products, including the Pixel phones, Google Home, 4K Chromecast Ultra, Google Wi-Fi routers and Daydream View VR. We got a chance to check out the Soho space on 96 Prince Street before its public opening later this week.

Google in NYC

It's a compact space, but laid out like an art gallery of tech.

Nothing will be sold here; it's a showcase of Google tech, not a store. But there are plenty of demo stations.

It's easy to get hypnotized by the sphere of tablets.

The sphere is meant to represent Google Photos, but I mostly saw color patterns.

Behind a door, a mysterious room filled with mirrors and glowing LED ropes, where we were encouraged to take low-light photos with the Pixel phones.

Things got weird in the glowing mirror room as we all went into selfie mode.

Google's offering a variety of phone case designs, and some you can make yourself. But they can't be ordered here at the pop-up.

You can try the Daydream View here. A close-up peek of the cozy-soft VR headset and its lenses.

The Daydream View comes with its own motion-sensitive remote for games and apps, which works like a tiny Wii remote wand.

If you show up at Google's NYC pop-up, you can spend some time peeking at games and YouTube videos here in this forest. Maybe we'll go back and join you.
