Are you clueless about cars, not knowing even the basics like where to check your oil and coolant levels, among other vital fluids?

The company ARMedia under Inglobe Technologies uses augmented reality to "[blend] digital and real world information in real-time by means of suitable computer interfaces."

One of their latest demonstrations showed how ARMedia 3D-tracking technology could help with ordinary maintenance on a Ford vehicle.
