The new trailer seems to be very exciting. Transformers fans has to be in complete joy upon seeing the trailer. The storyline from the cartoon series is finally coming to life. Whoever has seen the cartoon series, knows that it had to be like this from the first ever movie from the series.

The movie starts with a girl turning 18. The girl is no one but Hailee Steinfeld, playing Charlie Watson. She one day is roaming around the car garage and spots a yellow Beetle car. It has always been Beetle, not the Camaro. It is after that she finds out that it isn’t just a regular Beetle car.

On the run in the year 1987, Bumblebee, the yellow Beetle car that Charlie bought from the garage, finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie turning 18 finds Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. When she revives the car back, it is that instant she finds out is isn’t any ordinary car.

The movie shows the cute and amazingly cute Bumblebee taking shape form Beetle car. The movie depicts the 80s version of the characters from the transformer series. Shatter, a Decepticon who changes into a red Plymouth Satellite and a Harrier Jump Jet. Dropkick, a Decepticon who changes into a blue AMC Javelin and a Bell AH-1 SuperCobra. Blitzwing, a Decepticon seeker who transforms into a red/white McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II and Barricade. And of course, a red semi-truck transforming leader Optimus Prime on Cybertron. Though the Optimus seem to be appearing only as a Sound wave, it’s enough to pump the audience with joy.

John Cena who is playing the antagonist as Agent Burns seem to fit perfectly in the movie plot. The teaser further shows the Bumblebee learning the ways around the Earth. The movie is set beyond the starting of the movie series, feels like Paramount is set to start the series as it was on the cartoon series.

Charlie is seen showing the Bee around the Earth with Optimus Prime showing him ways to save the Earth. The rest of the trailer is filled with thrilling blasts and the Shatter and Dropkick warning John Cena and other security personnel about the attack that might result in the extinction of Earth if the Bee is not caught. Bumblebee is termed as criminal by the Decepticons that we definitely know isn’t true. But this is when the actual war begins. The Optimus Prime guides the Bee with Charlie leading the way for Bee. The antagonists are terrified with the fact of war and are found helping the Decepticons take over Bumblebee.

Conclusion of Bumblebee Trailer 2 2018 Review

The trailer is filled with exciting movie plot. It isn’t mush fresh content from the original teaser released earlier, but it is a perfect reminder about what is about to come. After the commercial failure of Transformers: The Last Knight, Paramount and the Powers That Be are rumored to be shuffling the deck behind the had been putting forward. From the trailer we can tell, the plot appears to be more character-driven than previous entries in the franchise and will hopefully be delightful change of pace from the mythological heavy mainline installments which if we have to be honest, have been pretty underwhelming lately.

Finally, we can see some of the originality of the series that comes from the cartoon series with main focus being the transforming vehicles rather than the human counterparts. Sam Witwicky, played by Shia LaBeouf is missing form the movie and the lead human counterpart is played by Hailee Steinfeld. The teaser is power packed and we will be waiting till 21st December 2018, for the movie release in 3D and 2D in the theaters all over the world. The Bumblebee being the cutest of all, the movie is definitely going to change the past of the transformer series.

ABS Anti Lock Braking System

ABS Anti Lock Braking System

Introduction of ABS Anti Lock Braking System

ABS is an abbreviation for Anti-lock Braking System developed in 1929 which was designed to help the driver maintain the steering ability and avoid skidding while braking.

It was first used on aircraft, motorists to experience the benefits of ABS in the Jensen Ferguson Formula, a four-wheel-drive car unveiled in 1966.

After that the development was slow and many motorists had to wait till the mid-1980s to have more from ABS. And now, the ABS is attached to every new car and is used to help stability while cornering and also promotes directional stability and allows steering during maximizing braking.

How does ABS Anti Lock Braking System work?

ABS Anti Lock Braking System

Pic: Motor Works

The concept of an ABS is actually very simple. In a moving wheel, when a wheel slips it has lesser grip. There is maximum braking effort developed at the point at which the wheel of the vehicle has just started to lock up and skid during an emergency stop. Another problem is that the ABS system is unable to steer the car if your wheels are skidding.

ABS Anti Lock Braking System is made up of four major components. It has speed sensors on its each wheel, a pump, valves and a controller from which the system gets information about a skid through speed sensors installed. This information is continuously monitored by the controller to control valves which is a computer. Then, usually during panic braking, the controller observes sudden deceleration out of the ordinary,

After that, the controller decreases pressure of that individual brake until it sees acceleration and then it increases the pressure for the deceleration again. The ABS performs this action in a few seconds before the wheel can noticeably change speed which simply means that the wheel slows down at the same rate as your vehicle, with the brakes keeping the wheel close towards the lock up. This entire process is felt similar to a pulsating feel in the brake pedal.

Hence, the anti lock braking prevent the wheels locking as you brake, and gives you more control and allows you to steer.

ABS Anti Lock Braking System Types | ABS Brake Types

Anti-lock braking systems can be differentiated by the number of channels or the number of valves that are individually controlled and the number of speed sensors

  1. Four-channel, four-sensor ABS

A speed sensor that is present on all four wheels and a separate valve for all four wheels. The setup helps the controller monitor each wheel individually to make sure that it is achieving maximum braking force.

  1. Three-channel, three-sensor ABS

This system, to achieve maximum braking force, provides individual control of the front wheels. However, the rear wheels are monitored together to start to lock up before the ABS will activate on the rear. It is possible that one of the rear wheels will lock during a stop, reducing brake effectiveness in this system. This scheme is mostly found in pickup trucks with four-wheels. The ABS has a speed sensor and a valve for all wheels.

Also Read: Ather 450 Electric Scooter Review 2018

  1. Two-channel, four sensor ABS

This system is commonly found on passenger cars from the late ’80s which uses a speed sensor at each wheel with one control valve each. If the speed sensor detects lock up then the control module pulses the valve for both wheels on that end of the car.

  1. One-channel, one-sensor ABS

This system works the same as the rear end of a three-channel system when the rear wheels are monitored together and have to start to lock up before the ABS begins to work. It is also possible that one of the rear wheels will lock; reducing effectiveness of brake in this system. It is mostly found in trucks with rear-wheel ABS which has one valve to control both rear wheels and one speed sensor located in the rear axle.

Another actor needs no introduction in Bollywood, he is India’s “Khelaadi”. Having acted in many genres, he is one of the most versatile actors we will get to see.

Released in 2010, Robot was a the most earning movie in the Indian Bollywood history, only being surpassed by Baahubali 2. It was first of its kind movie to spend such huge money in visual effects. After viewing the Robot movie, everyone wondered how the sequel to this movie would look like.

2.0 Teaser

Robot 2.0 Official Trailer

Pic: Dharma Productions

The wait now is over. The highly anticipated movie “2.0”, sequel to Robot, is set to release in November, 2018. The teaser to the movie has been released lately. On serious note, the teaser seems so satisfying that November seems very far away to watch the movie.

In the trailer, you will see the return of Rajinikanth as “Chitti: The Robot”, who has been commissioned by its creator Vaseegaran (also played by Rajinikanth) to stop the world from being destroyed by the mighty force of Dr. Richard (Akshay Kumar) also known as “Crowman”. The teaser doesn’t reveal much about the story plot, but you can see mobiles flying around forming the shapes of crow, you can see some badass fight scene between Chitti and the evil forces.

The trailer showcases some jaw dropping VFX. Akshay Kumar is almost unrecognizable with the makeover and is likely to hit the theater hard with his awesome performance as Crowman. The Background music to the teaser is given by AR Rahman, the Oscar winner. The 3D version of the teaser too will be released in theaters just to have a first hand feel of the movie’s jaw dropping VFX.

In the first half of the trailer, we see the cellphones flying in the sky, leaving everyone in confusion.

The next half of the trailer reveals Akshay Kumar in all villain style destroying city, the visuals of Akshay Kumar has been created as a gigantic bird which is controlled by Crow Man aka Dr. Richard. Although Akshay is there only for few seconds in the minute-long teaser, he is successful in leaving the lasting impact on the viewer’s mind. After the hard work of 2 years from over 3000 technicians all around the world, the movie is finally complete.

Producer for the movie, S. Shankar, said the “2.0” is nowhere an extension of Robot. He said that it is completely “a new format, a unique premise with a completely new message”. He termed the movie as “socio-fantasy, sci-fi actioner” of international quality.

Conclusion

If it’s a Rajinikanth movie, there is sure to be a festival like celebration. The movie will definitely extend the boundaries of the technological advancement in Indian cinema. Having seen the teaser, we can now without a doubt say that the movie is going to be somewhat Marvel like movie. Having spent a whopping Rs. 500 crores in making, it is definitely not a medium grade film, but we can say that its going to be huge blockbuster movie. I am looking forward to watch this movie the very first moment it is released, what about you guys?

Top 10 Best All-In-One PCs 2018

An all-in-one (AIO) PC can be a major upgrade you can do to a desktop pc. As the Personal Computer (PC) evolved through its era, it came in all shapes and sizes. If we start from starting, we see that the computing system (PCs alone) has evolved a lot in many aspects. We stared from just a processing unit that would fit into a big room, consume a lot of power and do very few programmed instructions. Now we have reached a point that computers are something that we can carry into our pocket, not just the processing unit but whole computer.

AIO is an advancement to such PC development but for the desktop, that would assist in some serious jobs to be done with full power, performance and persistent. If we watch for the laptops as an alternative for desktop pc, we might be able to reduce the reliability on desktop to some extent but the replacement of desktop PC with laptop is just not possible as of now. Because of the freedom of customization you have with desktop computers, you cannot have the same with laptop. There are many constraints that a laptop needs to stand upon to truly name itself useful enough to work with but a desktop can be upgraded at your will.

And then comes an All-In-One PC. AIO PCs are compact version of desktop PC for desktops, that has all the components of desktop CPU integrated into the monitor inside single case giving all the access to the ports and power supply inlet. AIOs are great to have if you want to get power of Desktop PC yet maintain clean and compact environment around you.
