Editor's Pick

Vollkswagen in China crowdsourced ideas for future car innovation via a virtual suggestion box on its website, and then turned them into reality in a series of viral concept videos.

In this video, Hover Car, the firm simulated an idea for a car that hovers above the street, powered by minerals underground. The parents of the girl who submitted the idea got to 'test drive' the car in the video. Two other concept cars, a 'Music Car' and the 'Smart Key' car, were revealed at the Beijing auto show last month. Altogether, VW received 119,000 ideas and 33 million hits on the website. The campaign was developed by Proximity Beijing/Goodstein & Partners.
