The Louvre to hand out 3DS systems as tour guides.
The Louvre museum in Paris - home to the Mona Lisa - is to replace it’s audio tour guides with Nintendo 3DS units.
The current audio guides are used by only 4 per cent of the museum’s 8.5 million annual visitors. With the 3DS, visitors will be able to locate themselves within The Louvre, select themed tours including specialised guides for children, and listen to “hundreds of commentaries in seven languages about the works on display,”
Nintendo has developed the content with guidance from The Louvre’s creators, and is also planning downloadable smartphone and tablet apps to enhance visitors’ experience.
