Kiev, Ukraine: an automatic machine is not working as it should. Ivan, the company technician, try to fix the thing. Ivan is one of the many that does not read the use and maintenance manual, or he reads it but he does not understand it and he therefore attempt an approach based on experience or on intuition. It still does not work. Ivan gives up and calls the machine manufacturer. He tries to explain the problem to the operator using his approximate english. At the end of the conversation they believe to have understand each other; a technician leave, destination Italy, with a spare part but when he reaches his destination, he learns that it is the wrong one or that other things needed substitution.
At the same time, in Saint Petersburg, Russian Federation, a similar machine has an analogous problem. Anton, the technician, wears his smartglass and audio/video connects with Mario by means of the glasses, which allow him to have free hands to intervene. Mario, from Italy, sees the same things Anton sees and helps him, leading him by means of graphical indications on the viewer of the russian technician.
