Tasty new automotive 3D animation

  • Nissan has launched its Rogue crossover vehicle with the help of a really nicely executed drive through a swiftly tilting city.  [Via]  They play off the ad via their Web site, featuring more animation & a fistful of Flash games.
  • Carmaker Mini has launched their Mini Clubman model via some solid Flash video + interactivity. [Via]
  • Joseph Kosinski & Gmunk have teamed up to create the expertly rendered Hummer: Game OnOh yeah, dude–the environment gets so totally pwned!! (Sorry, had to say it.) [Via]
  • Tangentially related: Apparently Joseph will be remaking Tron (PDF).  For Honda’s excellent take on Tron, see previous.

    Interesting. Once is a revised pong game using cars as paddles.
    While, they are some pretty well done games, will this really sell cars?

    Nissan has been doing a lot of marketing for their Rogue. They actually had a couple of marble maze videos on YouTube to compliment their TV commercial. This is one of them.
    [Very cool, though I’m not entirely convinced that they weren’t doing some sleight of hand to control the ball (a magnet, maybe?). The lack of shots out the window makes me a little suspicious. –J.]
