Augmented reality turns drivers into a car mechanic

Augmented reality - technology which takes virtual objects and layers them on top of live camera images - is being used by the car industry to help design the next generation of cars.

Click's Dan Simmons visits Audi's research headquarters in Germany to find out how the company is using the technology and looks at some of the augmented reality apps in development by Metaio, which could help drivers fix problems without needing to consult a manual.

Watch more clips on the Click website. If you are in the UK you can watch the whole programme on BBC iPlayer.
