Honda: Road Movies

An easy-to-use camera app that captures the joy of driving

by Honda Motor Co., Ltd

The Story

Honda is a brand that does not stop at just selling cars; it keeps offering new driving experiences and values to the world. "Internavi pocket" is an easy-to-use Smartphone app version of a two-way communication car navigation system "Internavi" provided by Honda. We wanted to create an even more fulfilling experience for drivers when they hit the road-the ability to create road movies.

This is a free camera app that allows users to easily record memories of a car trip or outing and automatically turn them into road movies with a stylish high-quality finish. In additional to auto-mode, which automatically films according to distance or time traveled, it is also possible to film manually. We created a structure that naturally communicates the joy of driving and traveling by making it possible for all users to share their own road movies on Facebook and YouTube.
