Augmented Reality Glasses from BMW Could Make DIYs Obsolete

About six years ago, BMW was showcasing a new type of technology that was way ahead of Google Glass and anything else mechanics around the world saw.

Basically it was a pair of glasses that displayed how to repair your car with detailed instructions and even spoken advice, if you needed it. The functions were incredible. They were actually capable of showing you the exact order in which you should take apart various parts of the car, to reach your intended goal, as you can see in the video below.

However, this posed an immediate threat to dealerships around the world. After recently launching an interface that would allow people to order their cars online completely (including paying for them), making servicing obsolete would eventually bankrupt dealers and lead to a couple thousand layed-off mechanics.

From the initial phase that you can see in the video below, little updates were announced later on so we can’t really tell you what happened with the whole thing. Hopefully, it will be launched eventually, allowing us to save quite a lot of money.
