Cancel the physical button. Is BYD’s new generation of Tang a breakthrough or playing with fire?

BYD’s last bomb in the new energy battlefield this year was finally dropped, and a new generation of BYD Tang, which received much attention, was officially listed. The BYD Tang released this time has made great progress over the previous generation in terms of appearance, interior, powertrain and technology configuration. Undoubtedly, its appearance means that BYD has reached a new level in new energy vehicles.

The car is definitely a good car. From the attention before listing, we can see how high expectations manufacturers and fans have for it. However, there is a detail in BYD Tang that makes me uneasy, that is, the new generation Tang will remove all the physical buttons of the central control, leaving only a few buttons around the gear lever and on the steering wheel, and replace them with a 14.6-inch intelligent floating large screen. At first glance, the sense of science and technology is full of intelligence and high-end atmosphere, but combined with the actual use process, I can’t help but think about it.

Nokia becomes Apple BYD is playing with fire.

BYD has always had an inexplicable ambiguity about the buttons on the central control. From the first model released in Dynasty series, BYD changed all the buttons on the central control to Chinese printing, in order to highlight that the vehicle was made in China and convenient for China people to use. A few years later, BYD developed to the second stage. The Tang released this time simply saved all the central control buttons, leaving none, just playing with the IPod. Technology has been upgraded, but what should we do about safety?

All Chinese keys

To give a simple example, the earliest popular mobile phone was Nokia. At that time, it was all physical buttons, and each button only represented a function. After a long time, we could operate the mobile phone to send text messages and make phone calls without looking at the screen, because each step was fixed and the buttons were fixed. Later, Joe helped the Lord break the pattern of mobile phones, and Apple brought the whole mobile phone industry into the era of smart touch screens. The mobile phone has no physical buttons, only a big screen is left. No matter how long it takes, it won’t be able to send short messages without looking at the screen as before, because every operation you make is a non-directional command, and you don’t know what you ordered at the moment. At the same time, the functions of mobile phones and the amount of information they carry are also increasing, and people’s eyes stay on mobile phones for a long time, thus ignoring the surrounding situation. The emergence of smart phones once increased the road accident rate.

The same thing happened in the car. In the past, we could control the switch of the air conditioner with one hand without leaving the road ahead, and adjust the temperature, air volume and radio frequency of the air conditioner. Now I want to do this series of actions with Tang, so I must shift my eyes to this big screen, then slide the screen, click on the air conditioner application, and then click on it to adjust the temperature and air volume after entering the interface.

In case I miss something in any step, I have to press the back button again, so my eyes will look at the big screen from time to time, I can’t concentrate on the road ahead, and the risk factor of driving will be greatly improved. This is just a function. If you put a movie on the big screen, the ending is too beautiful for me to watch. . . .

It’s dangerous for drivers to look at their mobile phones while driving, so you just put a big ipod next to me naked. Can I paint Tik Tok, eat chicken and drive a good car?

Voice control system cannot represent everything.

If you can cancel the physical keys, there will inevitably be a successor, that is, the popular voice control system, which is linked to the Internet and can complete the corresponding instructions through voice recognition. The voice control system has been used by major brand manufacturers in recent years and has gradually become the standard of new cars. But the voice system is the icing on the cake after all, and it still can’t be the dominant one at the present stage.

Analysis, although BYD has not announced it, the supplier of voice system should be iFLYTEK, and iFLYTEK has always been in a leading position in the field of voice recognition. In recent years, the car-mounted voice system developed has been widely used in different models of major brands, and its voice recognition accuracy has reached more than 95%.

However, used riders know that the voice recognition system in the car is also flawed; First, the response is too slow, and it usually takes a few seconds to respond after a command is spoken; Second, even if the recognition degree has reached more than 95%, there will often be recognition errors and unrecognizable situations, and used riders should all have experience, so at this stage, voice control can’t represent everything.

ponyHot review

It is undeniable that with the development of science and technology, cars in the future will become more and more intelligent and technological. You don’t even need to press buttons, and you can fully realize human-computer interaction and unmanned driving. From this point, BYD is undoubtedly a pioneer. But at present, the level of intelligent technology is not enough to support this change. Otherwise, with the technical strength of BBA, I dare not try to cancel the physical keys of central control so far.

Some people will say that Tesla doesn’t have physical buttons either, because the market share of Tesla is too low. Even if there is a problem in this respect, it is considered as an individual phenomenon, but the sales volume of Tang after listing will be more than ten times that of Tesla. With such a large market share, the problem will soon be highlighted.

Of course, these are only analysis. Only after the vehicle is handed over to consumers for a period of time can we know whether the worried things will happen. If you have any questions, welcome to smash the hammer.

Can more than 20 animated films and summer movies highlight the encirclement of domestic animation?

  Beijing, July 16th (Yuan Xiuyue, Wang Xinyue), the client of Zhongxin. com, is different from last year’s summer file explosions, and the biggest winner of this year’s summer file will be animated movies. The reporter combed and found that this summer’s summer file gathered more than 20 animated films at home and abroad. At present, half of the top ten films at the box office are animated films.

  Then, under the encirclement of Spirited Away’s overseas animation such as The Lion King, Pet Secret 2 and Toy Story 4, can domestic animation stand out from the encirclement?

  The Lion King broke 400 million at the box office.

  The recent movie box office may explain the truth that there are still a few people who will pay for their feelings. Miyazaki Hayao’s Spirited Away was re-released in less than a month, with a box office of nearly 500 million. The live-action version of "The Lion King" was released for 5 days, and the box office exceeded 400 million. According to the forecast of Cat’s Eye Movie Professional Edition, the final box office of The Lion King may be nearly 1 billion.

  If Spirited Away’s box office is that the audience "makes up for the movie tickets that have been owed for many years", then The Lion King is a reconstruction of memories.

  The plot and music have not changed, but as Disney’s biggest emotional card, The Lion King has attracted many people to revisit it.

  Some people also commented that the short board of the live-action version just can’t be as unconstrained and imaginative as animation. It is also considered that the performance of fake animals is not rich enough, "facial paralysis." Some people make fun of it, and Zhao Zhongxiang’s dubbing is the "animal world".

  At present, the douban score of the live-action version of The Lion King is 7.5, which is much worse than the animated version of 9.0. However, it is not bad among several Disney animated films imported from China, second only to Fantasy Forest and Aladdin (7.8 points).

  After the Spring Festival in 2019, a Disney animated film will be released every other month. From Dumbo in March to Aladdin in May to The Lion King in July, there is the official Little Mermaid by Mulan. Disney’s plan to shoot a live-action version is in full swing, but at present, it seems that relying on IP is not easy.

  Two Hollywood classic IPS are both cold.

  Another recent American animated film, Pet Secret 2, is no better than its predecessor, with a box office of only 70 million yuan in the first week and only 130 million yuan at present.

  In 2016, this film, created by the original cast of Despicable Me, won 389 million box office in China, and also won the most profitable movie in Hollywood that year. It tells the story of pets fighting with each other when their owners are not at home.

  As a film that focuses on "selling cute", the narrative line of "Pet Secret 2" is more complicated, but it is not lacking in entertainment. Many people evaluate it as cute and interesting. However, some people think that the plot is young and old-fashioned, and it is not as good as the first one.

  It is not easy to "sell cute", and it is even harder to sell new ideas. When The Secret Life of Pets was released, some people once called it an animal version of Toy Story. This summer, the results of Toy Story 4 were not satisfactory.

  As a sequel, Toy Story 4 was produced with great care. It regrouped classic dubbing lineups such as Tom Hanks and tim allen, and 100,000 people scored 8.8 points in Douban. Some people commented that Toy Story 4 drew a satisfactory conclusion for this series.

  However, unlike the popularity of the North American market, the film earned only 199 million yuan at the domestic box office. Some people think that this is because the release schedule hit Spirited Away. Some experts also commented that the series of movies are easy to make the audience feel aesthetic fatigue.

  The two Hollywood classic IPS are both cold. It seems that it is no longer tried and tested to "lean on" IP and "hold" the box office.

  Nezha vs. Full-time Master

  In the summer of 2015, "The Return of the Great Sage of Journey to the West" emerged as a dark horse, relying on the word-of-mouth fermentation of "tap water" and made a box office of 956 million. Some people called it a phenomenal work of domestic animation in the past 10 years.

  More importantly, it broke the stereotype of domestic animation "being young". After that, some good works appeared in domestic animation, such as Big Fish Begonia, Great Protector, White Snake Origin and so on, but none of them can become phenomenal works.

  Recently, several domestic animation "Seed Players" will be released soon, including Ne Zha’s "The Peak Glory of Full-time Masters", "Future Machine City" and "The Battle of Luo Xiaohei".

  Similar to The Return of the Great Sage, Ne Zha also draws on the traditional stories of China. However, its adaptation is bolder. Nezha Jr. wears dark circles and has a perverse image.

  In the movie, Nezha is not a young hero, but "born as a demon", but has a heart to be a hero. Only by struggling with fate can you become a hero. Jiaozi, the director, once said that the theme of the film is "Breaking stereotypes and reversing fate". Recently, the film opened the first round of screening, almost full, and won a lot of praise.

  Its most direct competitor is The Peak Glory of Full-time Masters, which is adapted from Internet IP. The film tells the story of Ye Xiu, a professional e-sports player with a great god level, leading the team to overcome difficulties and reach the peak of glory.

  Although it is not as popular as Nezha’s "national IP", there are novels and cartoons ahead, and more than 160,000 people still mark them as "want to read".

  It is worth mentioning that there will be fresh faces in the summer file, such as Future Machine City, which was bought by Netflix for overseas distribution rights, and the big movie Luo Xiaohei, a high-scoring animated short film.

  Japanese national IP accompanies China animation market.

  In recent years, Japanese animated films have been in a state of accompanying running in China. Except for "Your Name" in Makoto Shinkai, which has a box office of 570 million, and nearly 500 million in Spirited Away, the rest are carnivals of a few people in China, which failed to continue its box office miracle in Japan.

  The Night of Destiny — — The Cup of Heaven II: Butterfly of Destiny was released for 5 days, with a box office of over 25 million and a douban score of 7.9. The film is based on the third story line in the Japanese adventure game Night of Destiny, which is called the top IP of ACG (animation) circle.

  However, some people have commented that this film is very unfriendly to ordinary audiences. If you don’t understand the world view and story line of this series, I’m afraid you won’t understand it.

  Another Japanese "God-class" IP "Game Life Zero" will soon be released in China. The film is adapted from the light novel of the same name written by Mimiya You. It tells the story that six thousand years ago, for the hope of human survival, Hubby, a girl from Kikai, joined hands with human leader Ke to launch the battle of "love". As early as two years ago, the film was released in Japan and performed well at the box office.

  In addition, cartoons for young children are still an indispensable part of the summer file, and "Sail 7: Crazy Machine City" and "GG Bond: The Incredible World" all arrive as scheduled. Last year, the movie "Sail 6" exceeded 100 million at the box office, and "GG Bond: The Incredible World" was recently released, with a box office of 30 million. (End)
