There’s an art museum in Stockholm (or was it Munich?) that has installed a special system: Step too close to a painting and you will hear a soft warning sound, nudging you to take a step back. As you stroll through the display rooms you’ll hear a steady stream of these tones sounding from all around the museum… but what if you could get that up and close to an art piece?
