Nintendo 3DS in the Louvre
SHOWstudio Tech Updates

As part of a partnership between the Louvre and Nintendo, the 3DS will now be available for visitors to use as a new audio guide. The audio guide will feature 3D imagery and animation, an interactive map that allows users to see exactly where they are in the museum, over 700 commentaries on the work and the museum, and multimedia quizzes to keep the entire family engaged in the exhibits. The guides are also customisable to include certain pieces that users may want to see specifically.

The devices have replaced old handheld guides and it will be interesting to see them in practice and how much the additional features enrich the experience of the museum.
