What is S Bike Mode and How to Use it

Samsung recently announced a new budget smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2016) and one of the new features announced with the phone is the S Bike Mode. S Bike Mode is an innovative feature for bikers. This feature basically turns off all the notifications on the device when the user is riding a bike. This is sort of do not disturb mode which can be enabled using NFC.

S Bike Mode makes sure that you are not disturbed with calls and notifications while riding the bike.

How to Activate S Bike Mode? 

Samsung Galaxy J3 comes with NFC and there is a bundled NFC tag programmed to enable S Bike Mode. So you can paste the NFC sticker on the bike dashboard and tap the phone to enable S Bike Mode when you are going to ride the bike.

You can also enable it from the quick toggles in the phone notification centre.

How to Use S Bike Mode? 

Once you have enabled this mode, you will see the display of the phone activated for this mode and you will not be able to use the phone for any other functions or even make calls. You can see notifications from S Bike Mode, Smart Reply and your rides.

You can see the three tabs at the bottom for the options available in S Bike Mode.

You can also set your work and home locations from the settings of the S bike Mode.

Once this mode is enabled and someone makes a call to your number, he or she gets a voice message saying the caller is riding the bike. You can still proceed with the call by pressing 1. This message is the Smart Reply which you can enable in the S Bike Mode. Since Motion lock is enabled by S Bike Mode, you cannot answer the call unless you stop the bike or ride it less than 10kms per hour.

This feature is currently available in Samsung Galaxy J3 and we expect Samsung to make this feature in more phones launching later this year. In case you are looking to buy Samsung Galaxy J3,

An internal expanding brake consists of two shoes S1 and S2. The outer surface of the shoes are lined with some friction material (usually with Ferodo) to increase the coefficient of friction and to prevent wearing away of the metal. Each shoe is pivoted at one end about a fixed fulcrum O1and O2 and made to contact a cam at the other end. When the cam rotates, the shoes are pushed outwards against the rim of the drum. The friction between the shoes and the drum produces the braking torque and hence reduces the speed of the drum. The shoes are normally held in
off position by a spring . The drum encloses the entire mechanism to keep out dust and moisture. This type of brake is commonly used in motor cars and light trucks.

We shall now consider the forces acting on such a brake, when the drum rotates in the anticlockwise direction. It may be noted that for the anticlockwise direction, the left hand shoe is known as leading or primary shoe while the right hand sho…

Awesome iris mechanism

An iris is a mechanism that is used as a compact solution to close and open holes. It is made up of usually a series of metal plates that can fold in on each other or expand out. Iris mechanisms are commonly found in optical shutters (diaphragms). Irises are sometimes used in science fiction as doors.
