If geeks had their own shop in paradise, it might look like Amusement, the Gaîté Lyrique’s ‘creative-shop’ (Paris’s avant-garde digital arts centre) selling everything from Star Trek Monopoly and Rubik’s cube mats to old-school Polaroid cameras and wacky electronic key-rings and memory sticks. The cherry on the cake, however, is the personalized video game service. Tell the team what games you like and they’ll make a new one just for you (pre-order at firstname.lastname@example.org). The shop also houses an ‘objects of the future’ exhibition, showing prototypes of tomorrow’s inventions (think new musical instruments and robots).
