Hot Wheels races car with video camera

 

Sadly, I never had toys like this — but as of today’s purchase, my nephews will. [I hope they don’t read this or it’ll spoil the surprise!]

Mattel has added a video camera to its Hot Wheels race car — and the toy will capture images when its racing around on its own, or when the kid wears it as an action camera.

The $60 Vide Racer [online for $23!] records 12 minutes of video. It even has a built-in LCD for instant playback. It comes with clips and straps to attach to “bikes, helmets, skateboards, or almost anything,” the company says.

Videos can be edited online with Hot Wheels’ software. The car charges via USB.
