Augmented reality of circuits

When I first saw the video I was just so-so, but then it hit me how awesome this tool would be for analyzing old circuit boards to understand the design and functions.  I could easily see this type of tool as an integrated way to take a board and reconstruct the circuit schematic and generate a PCB layout to make a replacement.

Very cool idea.

I had a similar reaction till I imagined troubleshooting a circuit that I didn't quite understand. You could click on something and it would say "this is an X and it does this, test this piont for this result"

@Caleb in another matter , have a look at micro python[1] which is a great tool for the DIY crowd. It''s on kickstarter , so if you find it interesting and write about them, it sure would help.


Thanks.

Anything that can get the frustration out of prototyping has got to be a good idea. For a field service engineer this has to be a great tool.

For the service engineer working on something like a track signal circuit (railway), being able to confirm that the circuit wires have gone back on the correct locations would have been such a boon and saved a lot of worry.

This is good tech, I would like to see how low the cost would be for Arduino users?

Such kind of tools are very good to understand the circuits from the finished boards, where no documentation is present . very useful when we are trying to repair old boards .

A good tool for the first timers also in building the circuits and verifying them without the fear of any kind of fireworks.

We're now beta testing a system to create these types of guides (2d for the moment). http://www.equipcodes.com/VisionGuides

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
