to point at the engine. Remember you can talk to each other as well. So you
can verbally tell her what to do. If you see her making a mistake, you just
shout 'No - the green wire!'.
Ja, perhaps, but what I really want is to be able to point at stuff, rather
than describe it. That would allow me to do the trick with people who do
not speak English, and might be faster anyway. However ja, this could be
done with 2 computers and one Skype connection. A cursor overlay would be
cool. When you use Skype, is there a visible cursor on the screen? If so,
the mirror trick might work. spike
