Driving the wave
Tell me your favourite song and carmaker Jeep will tell you where to drive. The car manufacturer developed an interesting online concept in Spain called “Drive your track”. Users are asked to upload their favourite song, then special technology reads the sound wave generated and finds a landscape that matches the shape of the wave. With a further click, users can discover the route to reach their destination and useful information about the places they may see along the way.
Why it matters
People have emotional connections with music. So mixing different categories to create a new kind of experience may reinforce the connection they have with the product itself. Is this kind of combination enough to differentiate your brand within a highly competitive market?
Porsche Design Studio has taken its design expertise and used it to create some stylish, eye-catching gondolas for a ski resort in Salzburg.
Ford Spain has bottled the ‘smell of new car’ for a market that desperately craves it: buyers of second hand vehicles who miss out on a crucial part of the new car experience. Ford sprays the scent into all their used vehicles promising that their cars will feel just like new.
