Take a tour of Musée du Louvre with Nintendo 3DS

Those who frequent museums are familiar with audio-visual tours. Some have cumbersome boxes you hang around your neck attached to earphones, others may clip to your waistband. However, back in December, the Louvre went 10-steps further by purchasing 5,000 3DS handhelds in order to not only implement a stereoscopic 3D map users could examine, but also to provide patrons with more interact experience with the objets d′art they came to view.

Should you decide to pay a visit, the video below shows you how well 3DS works as your guide. [image]

    We have the same thing here in the national museum, but the difference is that they use iTouch :D

    I noticed when I went to the website for the Louvre, you could download an app for your iPhone or iPad – but I think using the Touch sounds way cooler.

    The last museum I went to was Alcatraz and it had the old-fashioned things you hang around your neck. Same at the Cincinnati Museum, but the later was 10 years ago. I need to get out more. :)
