Binoculars (called Telescopes in Nintendo Power) are telescopic devices in Super Mario 3D Land. If Mario steps on a green platform in front of it, he can look through the lens and get a view of the whole area. The binoculars are controlled by moving the Nintendo 3DS around using its gyro-sensor control and the player can press or to zoom out and zoom in, respectively. The player can also look for hidden Toads, and if the Toads are sighted, they will throw out items such as Star Medals, 1-Up Mushrooms, or even Stars. The camera can also be moved about using the on the 3DS. The image within the binoculars appears as 2D even if 3D is turned on.
Binoculars will return in Super Mario Odyssey. Here, Mario uses them by capturing them with Cappy, and they launch upward a set distance before their normal use, allowing Mario to view more of the area he's in.
