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.

I can remember my parents being overwhelmed by the idea of a touchscreen computer. Growing up in a generation of analog entertainment, the concept of utilizing their fingers to control various tech devices was equivalent to living in the futuristic world of The Jetsons. This technology is so easy to use that even someone as traditional as my father now owns an iPhone and a MacBook. He went from reading a physical newspaper for 20 years to subscribing to various publications on his iPad.
