Brief Explanation

Since year 2000, children’s reduced opportunities to contact cars have become a major issue. In order to convey the “FUN” in Honda brand by experiencing the car’s true values, we invented a car that runs with a smile. The car, with the world’s first interface to drive with a “face” using facial recognition technology, made a surprise exhibition at the motor show. As a result, SNS, news sites and TV shows picked up children’s smiles, created through the experience of the Honda brand, and reached over 100million households. After the motor show, we started, and still is, visiting events all around Japan, with a mission to share this special experience with more children.
