The Louvre + HTC VIVE Arts Render the Mona Lisa in 3D - COOL HUNTING
Incorporating infrared, x-ray and refractive data, HTC VIVE Arts has transformed the Mona Lisa into a 3D figure set inside a dedicated virtual reality experience at the Louvre. Entitled "Mona Lisa: Beyond the Glass," the immersive artwork attempts to show what the iconic, mysterious figure would look like in motion-and also give participants time to see the details of the painting without the clamor of other viewers. The VR event, a first of its kind for the museum, can be found in a special viewing room inside the Louvre, which includes 11 Vive Cosmos headsets. It's presented in conjunction with the museum's Leonardo da Vinci exhibition-the largest ever. An extended version of "Mona Lisa: Beyond the Glass" can also be downloaded through Viveport for anyone who can't make it to Paris. Read more at designboom.
