Features to look for in an off-roading car

Driving a car on a highway cannot be a thrilling experience as there are not enough challenges. But when it comes to driving on ghat roads having steep turns or maybe a total off-roading experience on a hill/jungle with no proper roads is something to look out for. But off-roading requires a car which has got what it takes to survive on a tough terrain. So here are some features to look for in an off-roading car. Keep in mind that off-roading vehicles can do good even on long routes.

Features to look for in an off-roading car

Features to look for in an off-roading car:

  1. Ground Clearance:
    Driving a normal sedan loaded with 4-5 pax with luggage and coming across a huge speed breaker will make you realize the importance of ground clearance. High-speed cars generally have low ground clearance to achieve stability at higher speeds. But here we are talking about off-roading which is way worse if you consider a badly built speed breaker. So you must have a high ground clearance or the chances of you surviving on off-road is really low without getting things damaged. Some SUVs like 2018 LandRover Range Rover Evoque or Jeep Grand Cherokee have adjustable suspensions to give you a better ground clearance while off-roading. This maintains lower ground clearance while driving on a normal terrain which is just perfect.
  2. Low Range Transfer Case:
    The low range transfer case is one of the features that will help the car to climb steep hills easily. What it really means is, when the car is going uphill, the wheel axle is rotating at low speed and requires a high amount of torque to get the car up against gravity. In this case, high torque requirement can be served better by low range gears and not normals ones. Having such a feature in your vehicle will help in climbing hills easily. Also while going downhill low range gearing helps to ease down the vehicle avoiding much of braking.
  3. Good overall torque:
    Torque is basically rotation force produced by Engine’s crankshaft. So better the torque, greater the power you get at low speeds. Like discussed in the last point that torque can come handy while going uphill. And not just that, any rough terrain would require a good amount of torque to get the vehicle running. Torque can help the vehicle get out of mudpie considering the tires have just enough grip. But do not confuse horsepower and torque as the same thing. You can read out the article to get a better understanding of both the terms.
  4. Hill Descent Control:
    There are cars which can sense the type of terrain and decide the amount of power a car needs. Like, suppose while going downhills one has to maintain the speed and also steer through the turnings. With steep slope and sharp curves comes the issue and that is where hill descent control comes in handy. It will automatically decide how much power should be given to wheels and restricts the wheel rotation to maintain speed. This allows you to just focus on steering while not worrying about the speed. Again a useful feature in some while off-roading.

These are some of the core features to look for in an off-roading car. They will club and make the off-roading experience much better. Don’t worry, these features are just to assist you and won’t steal away the adventure from off-roaders. Let us know if we missed out any features related to off-roading in the comments section below.

Artists performing at Motion Capure Launch event

Famous Studio collaborates with Centroid for Motion capture lab in India

Famous studio being the first to bring an industrial standard end-to-end motion capture lab in India in collaboration with Centroid(UK based company). The lab is full equiped with items require to do the motion capture in real-time. The Famous Studio lab is based in Mahalaxmi, Mumbai. The lab was launched on November 16, 2018 and the walk through was given by Mr. Phil Stilgoe, CEO & Producer, Centroid – UK.

What is motion capture?

Its a technique used by film/gaming/animation industry to record movements by placing markers on human body in 3D space using various IR cameras. The recorded data is then sent for post processing, where the errors are removed and the whole scene is then made using computer applications. When the cameras are used for motion capture, it comes under optical motion capture. There is another type of motion capturing done using Inertial suits having sensors inbuilt but are less accurate and do not require the use of cameras. Optical motion capture requires a lot of cameras depending on the shooting area.

The demo presented by Centroid consisted of two people wearing suits having reflectors. The position of these reflectors were captured by the cameras placed all around the shooting arena. The reflectors were placed in such a way that cameras are able to capture motion of every body part and joints. One can map the terrain using LIDAR systems so that motion capture seems more realistic when you see it in real-time. The reflectors/markers required to capture the movement of a horse or any other animal might be more depending on the motion it makes while moving. More the markers/reflectors in the line of sight of cameras, the better is the motion capture. The final recorded mo-cap is the end result of averaging out data from all the cameras placed in the arena to get much better accuracy. The demo had a crate placed in arena which was already mapped into the scene so the interaction with the objects was realistic while viewing it in real-time.

Some international movies like Guardians of the Galaxy, Mad Max, Godzilla, Assassin’s Creed are certain examples were motion capture was used to develop it. Now the gates are open for Indian Industry to do motion capturing using these amazing techniques. With this collaborations comes services like Motion and Performance capture, Previs and virtual production, crowd sim solutions, character pipelines for game and VR developers, and much more!

At the launch, Mr. Phil Stilgoe, CEO & Producer, Centroid, said, “India is one of the talent lakes in the entertainment sector. Not only is the creativity top-notch, the development of the sector is in the hands of innovative professionals who are increasingly hungry to create greatness. Monetarily, there is massive growth potential. Integration of technology will only enhance what we already have here, creating visual gold for the viewer.”

 

“Partnering with Famous Studios is a no-brainer for us. Not only do they have a strong position & reputation built over seven decades, they have time and again showed their readiness to adopt new technology”, he added.

 

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Anant Roongta, Managing Director, Famous Studios, said, “At Famous Studios, it has always been our endeavour to deliver the best. Be that technology, processing, ideation, or any kind of support. With Centroid, we lay the foundation for India to drive a new dimension of art, thus fostering the development & growth of the creative sector.”

Some of the challenges faced by the motion capture technique are scenarios where the size of different characters varies by huge amount like in the movie Godzilla. The character of Godzilla has to make movements based on the scaling size factor of other characters. Also in the movie Wolfman and Planet of the Apes, additional props had to be used as arm extensions to mimic the original character movement. Except for wild animals, other animals can be used for motion capture with reflectors stick to their body. One of the interesting case was the one where even snake movement was captured using this technique. All the scenes which are not possible in real-life can be done using motion capture technique and then post processed to get the desired output. Places where even a small detail like finger movement has to be captured incurs more charges. One of the best use case is where VR is used when the director wants to place himself into middle of the scene to find the perfect angle to shoot. Using VR, even the actors can see their movements in real-time to make it more accurate based on their character.

Built over 1500 sq. ft, the Motion Capture Lab at Famous Studios will support artists through the entire journey, from shooting, to post-production. With this new technology, Famous Studios invites a new generation of innovative visual creators to break into new spaces.

Machine Learning brain

Machine Learning and Deep Learning- A perfect paradigm

The latest advancements in AI are so amazing that understanding them brings a virtual world in fronts of us like as we enter in the room and the environment of the room sets according to our mood; the lighting, the music, the temperature everything gets changed. A lot more imagination and questions come into our mind like what else can happen next, how will be the future and many more. But do you know AI revolves around the two terms i.e ML and DL? We are girdled by the advanced applications of AI subsets like Netflix, Facebook, Customer service etc. Many of us get confused and uses both the terms as interchangeable that is why it becomes more important to understand both of them.

Definition of Machine learning

A machine which can use the data, learn from it through algorithms and then implement them while making decisions. In short, to make them self-conscious.

For instance, if we see an example of on-demand music. When we listen to a new song or new artist during that time the station recommends the similar songs. How? It is just because of machine learning algorithms, the algorithm associates the song preferences with the preferences of other listeners.

Machine learning is based on complex coding related to mathematics, programming to drive a mechanical function such as a car, television etc. In simple words, whenever a machine starts understanding your language, like if you say “it’s dark” and the light gets turned “on”, it means the word “dark” recognised by the machine.

Definition of Deep learning

Deep learning is a subset of machine learning but they differ by their capabilities. Technically, ML may get wrong but the deep learning algorithm goes wrong, is slightly unbelievable.  Sometimes, the coding sends to machine learning become slightly typical and that time it needs guidance. But with deep learning, we do not require any guidance, it uses its own brain and work accordingly.

For instance, the light recognises only the word “dark” and it will not work if any other word is spoken. Like if we say “ Unable to see” or “light is not working” the ML program will not be able to catch the cue but on the other hand the DL algorithm will learn, compute and then figure out that light needs to be opened. DL uses its brain as we people do.

As ML and DL are becoming more refined, we will see more advanced applications then chatbot, driverless cars etc. The domain is vast and innovative and the biggest giants of the market are looking for Hadoop professionals so if you want to be the part there are multiple courses available over the internet such as Hadoop training, which can help you in enhancing knowledge and skills. In addition, you get the extra credentials to get more offers. Also, you will gain a strong technical background which in turn makes you more confident and peer in the market.

Recent inventions

Nowadays, machine learning is even combined with ArcGIS for better results in less time. Earlier, to obtain a correct resolution image from the satellite was a tough task, it took almost months to achieve the level and now can be done in a day. But, these solutions need multiple library and advanced platforms and it’s not necessary that they support ML and DL. So Esri Cloud is invented which provides a platform to avail a solution-centric approach. Here, AI is used considerably for language processing and computer vision. Also, it provides infrastructure support to the Machine Learning and Deep Learning.

8 Steps To Setting Up A Successful Subscription Box Business

Becoming a part of this trending wave in the shopping community has become easier, but making it run successfully long-termly is not!! However, with the right approach, you can make it to culminating success.

To help you with it, in this article we provide you with a few simple steps that will help you setup a successful Subscription box business like Subbly, a successful subscription platform for entrepreneurs.

So, let’s have a look at these steps.

Step 1 – Figure out a product for your subscription business website

This is probably the most basic and important decision you will make for your subscription box business. The selection of a product to start your subscription box business with depends on one of two factors.

No.1 – Your passion toward it.

No.2 – If it is a trending one.

Choose the factor that you find the most favorable for your business to go a long way. A random pick of a product for the subscription box business won’t last long and will eventually land you in a dicey situation.

Above all, it is important to match your subscription website templates with your product’s niche. 

Step 2 – Decide on how you are going to source your products

Getting hold of your chosen products from the suppliers again depends on two factors that will have a huge impact on your business model:

No.1 – Free Products

No.2 – Paid Products

It might be quite astonishing to know that most of the subscription box businesses don’t actually pay for their products; they just act as a medium between the volume of the subscribers and the supplier choices to promote their latest products, eventually landing the savings at the business’ end.

The latter sourcing of products proves to be difficult and risky, as the sourcing of the products will strain your margins with additional costs and expenses.

Step 3 – Time to set up the price

Key component! Decider of your business!

Setting up the prices for your product is not as easy as pie; it needs some great financial tactics. Two things to avoid while setting up the prices are:

No.1 – Setting prices too low (gets your product tagged as cheap)

No.2 – Setting prices too high (drives away the customers)

First, understand and realize the actual price of the product in the market, and the cost at which your competitor is selling the same product. 

Now decide on the price that is slightly lower than your competitor; this is recommended to grab the audience at your end at first.

Step 4 – Identify the target audience

Since your product will specifically belong to a niche that interests the particular group of customers, it is important to put your ideal customers as the highest priority.

Two things you need to have on your mind while targeting the audience are:

No.1 – Don’t try to cater to everyone.

No.2 – Cherry pick your customers like you did for your product. 

Step 5 – Analyze the favorable membership options

Even before you get your very first customers, you need to have a clear picture of what will they seek from you? How often do they want their subscription box?

So again, two things you can think of while analyzing this:

No.1 – Consider offering free trials to spread the word. 

No.2 – Consider offering a flexible subscription and hassle-free cancellation option.

Never, ever consider the contracts with your customers’ membership; it scares away the customers.

Step 6 – Find ways to conduct shipping and handling

Shipping and handling of the subscription boxes to your customers might seem difficult if you are just starting out with very tight margins.

The two things you can consider for shipping are to:

No.1 – Pack and ship them out yourself

No.2 – Collaborate with a cost-effective third-party to do this for you.

Step 7 – Showcase your presence – Marketing

Your business isn’t really sailing if you don’t acquire the customers for your subscription box business at the very earliest of opportunities.

Think of different strategies to grow the business. Two things to consider as it relates to marketing are to:

No.1 – Implement Facebook and Google ads strategies and other social media marketing strategies.

No.2 – Find the premium featuring sites that can make your subscription box business go viral. 

Step 8 – Defend the wicket!!

Things are not going to be easy for you and your business. So, you need to be ready for the challenges even at the nick of time. 

Success won’t knock on the door in a day or two; patience and a combination of hard and smart work is required for the culminating success of your subscription box.

If we talk about case/cover, then leather finish is something I would prefer as it gives a rich feel, formal look, and better grip. Today we have with us Jisoncase Macbook pouch sleeve for review. Jisoncase is a company which makes gadget case, watch bands, and other accessories/items. 

Jisoncase Macbook pouch sleeve review:

I recently received a Macbook pouch sleeve from Jisoncase for review. Though the size which I ordered was for the older Macbook, it might seem a little big for this model. It was put to test on a daily use and here is my opinion about the same. 

Design

The Jisoncase Macbook pouch sleeve has a leather finish, but the one I received was made of Microfiber premium Leatherette. It is man-made leather and has a finish like natural leather. Due to the man-made thing, it has high tear and tensile strength along with anti-aging properties. Due to this, it can be cleaned easily without any issues. The design of the Jisoncase Macbook pouch sleeve looks premium due to the leather finish and the color I chose was brown. When you touch the pouch sleeve, you can feel leather like pattern and the stitches are clean & visible. The Macbook easily slides in and fits properly. The touchpad, ports, and the bottom vents are accessible & exposed. Due to the bottom holes the design of the case promotes cooling of the Macbook. Overall the design of the pouch sleeve is well thought of and almost all points are covered while making it. Though it hides the shiny logo of apple on the back, now the Macbook has much better grip with Jisoncase Macbook pouch sleeve.

Durability

The Jisoncase Macbook pouch sleeve is made of micro fiber PU leather which overcomes limitations of natural leather. This man-made leather has much better tensile strength and high tear strength too. It is meant for rough and tough usage. The stitches on the case are tight and neat with respect to the design. The endurance testing performed while folding the case showed some good results with the PU leather. Overall if we talk about durability then PU leather excels if we compare it to natural leather.

Features

Well how can one talk about features if we are reviewing a normal pouch sleeve. But the Jisoncase Macbook pouch sleeve is not just a case. It has the normal feature of protecting the Macbook from scratches and to some extent direct hits to the body. It covers the gadget in a good manner safe guarding it from all sides. The additional grip decreases the risk of Macbook slipping out from one’s hand. But apart from the protection, the Jisoncase Macbook pouch sleeve can transform and lift the Macbook to certain degrees so that typing becomes easier. It acts like a stand so that our hands are placed in the best position for typing on the Macbook. This is the feature which I love the most and is very useful while working for a prolong duration on a desk. 

Cost & Availability

Jisoncase Macbook pouch sleeve is available on their website for $29.99 in different colors. One can also go for other quality and different products available on their website. Though the company is from China, I had an excellent experience in receiving the product within 10-12 days to India. Overall the Macbook pouch sleeve is something I would recommend you to go for if you are looking for one such case.
