Using the Layar app for phones & tablets, it appears that it is already possible to see what the Duveen Gallery at the British Museum would look like if the Parthenon Marbles were returned.

I’m not sure exactly who the target market is for this, but it can help to generate a lot of publicity for the issue, particularly if people use it obviously while visiting the British Museum.
