Honda's Holiday Toy Ads Continue To Make Us Nostalgic For The '80s

Honda had us all weepy-eyed with nostalgia during its first run of holiday ads this year that used our favourite ’80s toys to lure us into buying a car. The strategy probably didn’t convince every child of the ’80s to run out and buy a new ride, but that’s ok because it means Honda just keeps churning out more of these wonderful commercials.


Honda's Using Your Favourite '80s Toys To Sell You A New Car

Now that the children of the ’80s are all grown up and have lots of expendable income, companies have realised that nostalgia can be a great marketing tool.

Cool Interactive Ad Lets You Choose Between A Plain And A Badass Story

Video: This interactive ad is actually two commercials in one. If you let the video roll, you’ll end up with your average car commercial.

Honda's Asimo Robot Gets A Little Bit Better, A Whole Lot Creepier

It’s been almost 15 years since Honda first introduced Asimo, the company’s attempt to create a humanoid robot that can walk and perform other human-like tasks.

Honda's First Personal Jet Is A Tiny Flying Wonder

Screw flying cars — I just want the flying. The first production unit of Honda’s first ever aeroplane has taken to the skies for the first time in Greensboro, North Carolina. This flight is a major milestone towards its certification — and a great excuse to post a gallery of HondaJet F3 porn. The cockpit is great.


Despite Poor Sales, Honda Will Keep Selling Hybrids In Australia

Honda sold less than 500 hybrid cars in Australia last year, and two of the strongest sellers from that mediocre number are being discontinued soon. Despite that bleak outlook, the Japanese manufacturer remains buoyant about the possibility of hybrid technology, although its local boss says more efficient petrol and diesel cars are taking centre stage for the time being.


This 187km/h Ride-On Lawn Mower Is A Real Thing

Honda and Team Dynamics have been working for some time on something pretty special. Not content with a ride-on mower you could simply zip around your garden on, they wanted something you could tear up the road with. Cue an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the fastest ride-on lawn mower.


Honda Grom: City Commutes Should Always Be This Fun

There’s no bit of technology that made me happier last year than the brand new Honda Grom motorcycle. Is it cheating that it’s not strictly a gadget? I don’t care. Even if the Grom still breaks fast on old-fashioned dino juice, its diminutive size paired with street legality changed the way I think about city transit and my personal motive needs.
