New Audi app uses augmented rlity to help you find stuff on your car

Audi has recently launched a new iOS app that could offer a glimpse into the future of vehicle manuals. It’s calledeKurzinfo, and it uses the camera of an iOS device, along with somugmented rlity tech, to help users identify parts and ftures on their car.
Built for the popular A3 hatchback, the appcovers over 300 elements of the car from windshield wipers to the oil cap. Engine overhting? No problem, simply launch the app and pan the camera across the A3′s engine bay to find where to put your coolant…
Here’s an overview clip of the app (via Cult of Mac):
The site notes that this isn’t the first appliion of its kind from Audi. A similar offering has been available for A1 users for quite some time now—though it covers substantially less components—and the company also has a series of other augmented rlity apps.
Unfortunately, it looks like eKurzinfo is only available in the German App Store right now, and there’s no word on when it will rch the US. It looks like we may have to wait until the 2015 Audi A3 lands Stateside rly next yr to play around with the new app.
