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

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.

@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?

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"

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.
