The automotive industry is even using this tech when it comes to working on vehicles using tech similar to Google Glass, tech that'll help in knowing what parts to replace in an accident.
BIG industry changes.

The technology has really progressed. Apparently 5 years ago simulations could handle 2 million elements, but now that number has increased to 7 million. Simulations can now account for every piece of plastic and metal in the car, as well as every bone in the human body.“The technology continues to get more advanced, and capabilities continue to expand,” says Ken Bonello, senior manager of safety computer-aided engineering at GM. “We’re able to simulate a crash test with more accuracy,” and, because of advances in computer processing, do it much faster.
Yeah that's what I saw previewed in a video, they call it augmented reality.So mechanics put on Google Glass type goggles, and then take a look at the car and it highlights the parts that are in need of replacement or repair?
It sounds pretty cool, and I'd be interested to see an example of how it works. I'd like to see how it would be more beneficial than the regular maintenance or repair scheme.Yeah that's what I saw previewed in a video, they call it augmented reality.
It's great as not always will the service manual provided from the car maker will give the best directions on how to go about a fix, still it sets a solid foundation.
The difference, you're basically going from looking at a manual and/or going off of training to having a simulation walk you through it step by step.

The future. Cool.
Yea I guess they give quotes. And ultimately the VR glasses only help diagnose the problem not fix it, so they may be able to just give more accurate estimates for the time it will take fix.Tech's that get paid by the hour might like it because there's less thinking and more doing, less time wasted, more units racked up. Last thing they want is to spend more time than paid for on a job.
