GoPro brings us another set of amazing features and products with their latest release (28/09/2017). The more 2x performance Hero6 along with features like 4K60 and advanced stabilization, better image quality, more fun with slow motion and introducing Touch Zoom. The major upgrade comes in the QuikStories which helps in making Story using the GoPro app which automatically edits the footage that has been sent to the phone from the Hero6 (upgrades to the sharing have also taken place).  The QuikStory creates an epic video with music and effects using GPS location, time stamps, faces, audio and accelerometers to make a well coordinated story line. #QuikStories is the hashtag to check out already created content.

The other beautiful thing that comes out is FUSION. It captures immersive 360° videos in 5.2K to play back as VR. As the saying goes FUSION - Relive Reality. This will bring us a step closer to reality in VR. Experiencing adventures in VR is a whole new feel and closeness one can get.

The launch of Fusion should make some amazing 360° videos that upload to Social media (Like Facebook, Youtube and others) an amazing experience as most current cameras on the market just capture HD or around that. The amazing experience with Fusion is, to forget pointing the camera at a particular direction and just spending the time experiencing the adventure. This freedom will help in producing some amazing videos. See the below video in 360°.

The images that one captures from the Dual cameras on the Fusion and amazing feature like OverCapture which helps in creating awesome traditional videos from the spherical footages that Fusion captures.

The epic live action trailer in itself is great as we get to see some amazing footages (Middle Earth Universe) but to drop an interactive trailer so as we get the message of where the story is moving towards, is downright genius. Down below is the Teaser for the Shadow of War, Friend or Foe.

The live action trailer really sets the mood with the settings of Mordor and that too in the middle of the battlefield and leading a fight between the humans and the orcs. Released on 18/09/2017

This time the setting of the fight is with human leading an army of orcs (army of Orcs amass under the rule of man) against the orcs that are invading Mordor.

The interactive part of the trailer is the choices that one makes; as nothing will be forgotten. One needs to go through the choices in the trailer to know what choices will be available during the game. We get the choice of choosing our Nemesis.

The most amazing thing about the Real Life Action controlling of character is the immersing into the game one gets & fully participating in it.
There is a lot of people who have created Hitman themed videos paying respect to the Game franchise. Its fun to see how people stay true to the stealth fighter and show a real life action depiction of the game. Agent 47 again taking on another mission.

Volvo trucks show off their Volvo FH truck's technology by demonstrating the performance of D13 engine and I-shift Dual Clutch Gearbox. The whole Live Test was set up and fully supervised with precision stunts. The professional Para-glider, Guillaume Galvani and the 12 year veteran Volvo truck driver, Louise Marriott pulled off this live test.

The Volvo Trucks team has been teasing us with their teasers and trailer for the last 6 days.
Trailer 1 - Released on 23rd November 2016

Trailer 2 - Released on 25th November 2016

The impressive thing about Volvo Trucks live tests are that they do get the point across about the performance and the latest technology being used in the field of transportation. We get to see how the trucks function in different circumstances and what one is getting into.

It is amazing to see a Para-glider (professional) gliding using the back of a Volvo Truck and enjoying a joy ride all the way uphill even under a bridge (all performed under strict supervision - so don't try this as extreme sports). I am sure the experience by the driver was a new one (also a memorable one) as one does keep the truck load in mind but definitely not a flying passenger that too behind the truck.

During one of the previous Live Tests by Volvo Trucks, 'The Epic Split' and others; one of the kids watching the JCVD's The Epic Split stated that the advertisement is great as it wants me to purchase not one but two Volvo trucks to perform the Epic Split. (That was definitely hilarious as a different perspective was put forth).

Now the whole purpose of the Flying Passenger Live Test - how does the performance and new technology of Volvo be explained. Have a look at the video below to understand the Consistent speed and uphill battle that takes place to keep everything synchronised.

GoPro has been bringing their A game in portable high definition cameras. Their latest upgrades have not been disappointing. Examples: Waterproofing for certain depth which helps a lot during surfing, kayaking, swimming, jet-skiing and others. Another amazing feature of their Hero5 is the LCD which was missing previously due to their compact size and power backup. They have maintained their quality and upped their game in the video features also. The latest addition to the GoPro is Karma - flying drone with stabilizer.
