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]
