Seeking your financial support on Indiegogo, the augmented reality app I-Mechanic will allow you to use your tablet or smartphone to discover the various parts of your vehicle's engine and the procedures to perform your own maintenance.

Simply place the mobile camera in front of your car engine to let the app disclose all the relevant information about the parts and procedures on the smartphone display.

Once you have selected the part of interest, information regarding the relevant maintenance and/or repair operations will be prompted through an intuitive and natural Augmented Reality interface. This information will provide real time 3D instructions on how to perform the selected repair task. Once you’ve understood how to perform a task by means of the device you can keep your hands free and solve the problem.
