This invention makes it so that people can go online and train people in real time.

The trainee will wear the hat, a backpack with laptop/wireless card, and a headset.

On the hat will be a webcam and a laser pointer, which can be controlled by the trainer, online from their chair.

For example, for plumbing under a sink, put on the hat and backpack, and have the plumber guide you throught the repair process by using the laser pointer and communicating through the headset.

Depending on the speed of the connection and camera resolution ($), this will be a cheaper and easier alternative to actually visiting a job site for the trainers.
