art1.jpgWe have video showing new technology being used to make art more fun, as kids can now talk with people in classics such as the Mona Lisa, and get replies.

Are you kidding? They are wasting this magic on education? Does nobody have a sense of humor? Why not install these gizmos instead of the real art? Imagine sweaty tourists shuffling by, when suddenly Mona Lisa starts talking to them…

But okay, If they must use this technology for education, then use it with that iconic classic, Dogs Playing Poker.” I seriously need to find out how that Saint Bernard fooled everybody with a lousy pair of deuces! Everybody wants to know that!”
