Audi has launched the

"> ‘One Million Reasons’ microsite which has visualsised the positive sentiments from fans on social media in a 3D model of the Audi R8.

Razorfish Germany conceived the idea with Audi and creative production company Minivegas. They were tasked with creating a unique and interactive web experience which would allow Audi to learn more about its fans.

The core of the One Million Reasons site is a 3D model of the Audi R8 which is generated from individual, spherical particles, created using WebGL technology. Each individual sphere represents a reason someone has given, via the #onemillionreasons hashtag, for loving Audi.

Consumers can find their unique particle of the model and then share as a piece of art, via their social media channels, or keep it as a wallpaper.

“The biggest challenge for us on this project was to combine real-time, social media generated content with the slick and sexy visuals that you would associate with an automotive campaign,” said Maarten Boon, creative director and partner, Minivegas.
