Young Thais are drawn by the big city lifestyle
Think of Zoom Art, a pocket telescope made by Florentine company Palomar, as the museum-goers' equivalent of a pair of opera glasses. Peer at the fine brushstrokes on a Rembrandt or Da Vinci in a way others can't, thanks to a lens that magnifies objects by six times. The compact tool, which is about three inches long, allows travellers to admire the details of an artwork while maintaining a roughly three-foot distance – never accidentally setting off a museum security alarm again. Comes in light blue, orange and black.
