Have you ever had a problem with your car, but were left completely and utterly bewildered when you popped the hood in hopes of fixing it yourself? If this clever augmented reality app from Inglobe Technologies ever hits the market, even the most clueless driver will be able to easily maintain their vehicle, and maybe even have a chance of fixing a problem themselves.
Demoed here on a Ford, not only does the app track and virtually label the most important engine components in real-time, it also includes animated demonstrations of where and how to top up fluid levels, and even check the oil. It will probably never go as far as to show you how to completely dismantle and rebuild an engine, but if you're stranded on the side of the road because you're out of coolant, it could help you immediately get on your way instead of having to wait for AA to arrive.
