An invisible electric wheel, how interesting and possibly useful.

Are there any invisible instructions to go with it ?

I can't say that I am finding it particularily useful. I think that I will continue to work things out the old way.  ok2  %)  {-)  8)

For anyone with an Android phone or tablet, Electrodroid offers some interesting calculators and data sheets. Basic features, resistor colour code, Ohms Law calculator etc are free. Its in the Google Play store - works with ICS, I assume with previous version too.
