About the Entry

IAC Crystal Trophy

The 2012 Nissan Versa is for twenty-somethings looking to buy their first new car that has room for anything but is still affordable on a recent-graduate budget. In the Versa iPad experience, we put potential buyers in the driver (and passenger) seats for a “first person” view of how Versa’s “Room For Anything” looks—and more importantly, how it feels. With legroom and headroom leading the narrative, and supported by facts and measurement, the experience allow users to explore the vehicle’s space using 360-degree panoramic images and functionality. Roominess stories are presented contextually through moments, such as a road trip with friends that attach an element of self-expression and emotion to all the facts. The first person experience is about showing, rather than telling consumers about the superior size of the Versa. An HTML-based solution that leverages the new gyroscope technology recently made available on the iPad 2, “First Person” places the user into the car, allowing a first-hand experience of the expansive interior cabin: from the perspective of the driver or a passenger. Rich panoramic views offer visibility from every angle, while vibrant lifestyle imagery tells the narrative. And Unlike other automakers, who have built mobile applications that are constrained by platform and device limitations, Nissan is one of the first to deliver an immersive, browser-based experience leveraging the gyroscope technology, so it can live anywhere: optimized for iPad2 and iPhone, it can also be experienced from desktops to tablets, smart phones and even internet TV.
