The London Eye’s capsules now include Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 devices, displaying bespoke content created by LMC Design and Henry Stuart Photography.

The interactive touch screen guides are designed to provide details about the views from the wheel. Delegates can access information about 44 famous London landmarks, 24-hour time-lapse photography, 360-degree day and night views from the London Eye and bird’s eye views of some of the key landmarks.

The addition is the result of a survey of 5,000 visitors.

David Sharpe, divisional director (London) for the Merlin Entertainments Group, said: "I’ve worked at the London Eye for ten years now, enjoying countless rotations and I can assure our guests that the new interactive touch screens provide a fresh view of the capital.

"We’re thrilled to be offering our guests this innovative addition and hope that all those who visit us in this Olympic year enjoy the benefits that the guides bring to their experience."
