Camera with training wheels?

Nikon has a new model camera aimed at novices, so they did a smartie and added educational menus to their large LCD.  These don’t only describe the settings, they tell you what the settings are for, how to use them, and how they’ll affect your shot.  A great feature for people with cognitive disabilities, like the 90% of us who take pictures infrequently enough not to remember the meanings of those tiny, obscure flower-runner-mountain-moon icons.  Will we see this feature duplicated on copy machines?  Diffused to humidifiers?  Adopted for baby monitors?
