And I do not see how that would make the job of "checklisting" any different.I thought could it be better if pilots would do the checklists on an lcd display instead of moving their heads and checking the buttons. I mean this looks even more monotonous but at least their focus will be on the screen and they will clearly see what's written there.

For example the parking brake, is a physical switch, wbut you can’t rely on the physical position of the switch to verify that the parking brake is set. You’re supposed to look at the screen for “PARKING BRAKE”. If you set the parking brake but don’t see “PARKING BRAKE” then the parking brake is not set.
