Very cool stuff. Saw a demo for this the last time I went to my BMW dealership for my $600 oil change.

Doesn't Boeing have a similar system for their wiring technicians? The glasses display a map of the wires, and the technician puts the wires where they are displayed.
Not sure if this is true or not.
Cleared to IAH via CLL 076 radial/BAZBL/RIICE3, up to 3k, 7k in 10, departure on 134.3, squawk 4676, Colgan 9581.

Cool technology, but couldn't that be another method to tightly tie BMW owners to their respective dealerships? I don't suppose they would just sell them to any shop, or at the high price...
As Fxramper said: bring on the $1000 oil changes...
It'd be cool for aircraft maintenance though.
Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit posting...

Theoretically, such technology would make labor rates lower, by enabling lower-skilled/less-expensive technicians to work more quickly and efficiently.
But unfortunately, I think your vision of the future is probably closer to reality.
