Augmented reality is a tricky concept to make popular it seems. I don’t know what it is about it. It’s always on the brink of becoming popular, but it never does for some reason. People marvel over the cool effects and innovation around it, but we don’t seem to adopt it into our own lives. Let me ask you, how many times have you tried an augmented reality app since the concept was introduced? Not very many, right? Well, maybe you will when the new augmented reality car repair app is finally released.
This app comes from Inglobe, a company that is looking to become the frontiers of augmented reality innovation. This app could come to revolutionize the way that we maintain and repair our cars. Not only does this car repair app come across as a good utility to have on our iPad or tablet, but if we go a little further and think about what could be added to it, we quickly realize this app has limitless possibilities.
For example, imagine you have a device in your car that accurately tells you, through the car repair app on your tablet, exactly what is wrong with your car when it doesn’t run as smooth as it used to or not at all. You would be able to take your car into the auto repair department knowing exactly what is wrong, so if they try to cheat you out of your hard earned money you will know it before they have even finished the sentence. What’s even better is that you will be able to fix the problem yourself if it isn’t too complex.
It’s not too hard to imagine this app becoming popular when you think about how many people are struggling when it comes to maintaining or repairing their cars. The app itself will probably be able to recognize the engine of your car, its parts, and how to repair or maintain them within a few seconds. So far, this app is just a prototype app that demos the technology and user interface that uses augmented reality to help you repair your car. It’s apps like this that will launch augmented reality into becoming a household must-have app category.
