Visit The Louvre in 3D With Nintendo

There’s not much to say about this one but it is interesting to see console makers extend their reach by getting their products into new areas. That’s certainly the case with Nintendo’s recent partnership with The Louvre museum in Paris.

The museum is offering 3DS units to use as tour guides as people explore one of the greatest collections of art outside of the Vatican’s basement. It’s more than just an audio track too, there are 3D models and maps.

  1. I guess this is pretty cool? But I’m not sure why you would want to check out something in 3d on the 3DS when you are right in front of the real thing.

    • Agreed. Also, if you’ve ever been to the Louvre, you’ll know there is never a moment where it’s as clear as it is in that video. Im thinking that 3DS would get smashed! Shame there wasn’t any kind of augmented reality features… that could have been interesting at least.

  2. a very interesting idea.
    you could get a much closer look at some of the exhibits than a member of the public ever could normally.

    it would great if they could stick all that stuff on a card and sell it as a virtual tour for those who can’t get there in person.

    mind you, i bet they’ll get people trying to nick the 3DSs.
