Recall the scene from matrix movie where the female lead actor asks the operator to load an apache helicopter program so that she could fly the machine in front of her, imagine what can be accomplished if you could impart the knowledge of accomplishing a task in a simple manner understandable by most of us. in a way where we could relate to what is in front of us with what is being shown to us. From the scene I could recall that knowledge of how to interact with various controls in a timely manner has been attained. if I have the luxury of taking the time out of equation, what if I can gain the knowledge to do something without a time constraint. This looks more like high tech. but I wanted to apply this to something we do day to day.
I have brought a TV stand and RO water system in the past. me being a mechanical engineer, it took me about an hour or so roughly on each of them to assemble. Imagine if I were to scan a code on these item's packaging, that could take me to assembly instructions of the item on my smart phone, and, I could use a chromecast to view it on my touch device or TV. I could relate what is being shown with what I have and I just follow the video. No need to read anymore. the material viewed can be in the form of video or 3d assembly instructions using IPM viewer from solid works. This concept can be extended to anything and everything from assembly instructions to automobile repair/ trouble shooting manuals. It is analogous to documenting the best possible way to accomplish a task in a 3d video.
With so much advanced technology lying around, like scan a image from a magazine to view a video content relevant to the image, with scanner app to scan code on advertisements' to show relevant material in video format, what is the need for an instructional manual. so the essential question is why do I have to read instructions.
can we not do away with them. Thank you for reading and please do share your thought
