A “living” Mona Lisa

A team of 40 French technicians and artists have spent the last year working on a “Living Mona Lisa,” which uses a motion sensor (similar to those employed in interactive video games) to produce a version of the portrait that can follow viewers’ movements with her eyes and change her expression. As Florent Aziosmanoff, who conceived the initial concept, told the Telegraph, “Leonardo da Vinci tried to make her come alive, so it’s appropriate that we’ve taken his intentions a few steps further.”

Digital versions will be produced and marketed to go on sale in the autumn in different sizes and formats, such as digital paintings for “a few hundred euros” or miniature versions hung on a pendant, perhaps surrounded by jewels.
