Classic masterpieces at the famous Louvre in France will be face to face with the Nintendo 3DS. In a special project to be undertaken by the two sides, museum officials are hoping that the use of Nintendo 3DS will help Louvre visitors in their guided tours.
Basically, the 3DS will be used to help visitors visualize and get a better grasp of the masterpieces at the museum. Around 5,000 3DS units will be used. The 3DS does not need special glasses to show images in 3D, making it a practical choice as guide for museum visitors.
The museum already offers audio guides but officials expect the use of 3DS will be more than welcome by its visitors as they may already be familiar with the device. Having a touchscreen also helps in this case. “We are the first museum in the world to do this,” Agnes Alfandari, the museum’s head, was quoted as saying.
