The Louvre and Nintendo have teamed up to give visitors the ultimate digital media museum experience. Since only 4 percent of the Louvre's visitors use the museum's audio guide, it has enlisted the help of Japanese game company Nintendo to enhance customer engagement.
Nintendo has donated 5,000 of its 3DS consoles (personal gaming consoles that let users see 3D images -- no geeky glasses necessary) to the Louvre, says PSFK. With the Louvre and Nintendo initiative, a visitor of the Louvre can use the 3DS console to choose a themed tour, navigate his way easily through the museum and listen to commentary on the museums exhibits.
The Louvre also offers its visitors other interactive applications for smartphones and tablets that allow users to retrieve pictures of museum exhibits and also get more information about items in which they're interested.
