How the World Looks Like from Inside a Hot Wheel
But let's not get sidetracked. So, how does the world look like from inside a Hot Wheels car? Truthfully, we have absolutely no idea, and that will remain unchanged at least until June, when the toy gurus are launching the so-called Hot Wheels Video Racer.
Looking like any other Hot Wheel, this particular car hides spy-worthy equipment, complete with camera and an on-board memory that can store up to 12 minutes of video.
The car offers those who plan to use it to spy on the girl next door the possibility of viewing the result of their work directly on the built-in LCD screen of the car. This type of viewing, however, may not be the experience you were looking for because it is only the size of a stamp, is low quality and, above all, comes with no sound.
Fortunately, Mattel fitted the car with a USB port, so you can download the video recorded in the car and watch it in the safety of your own home, on the PC, for instance.
As said, this gadget launches in June. You have enough time until then to get your act together and really save some money, as spying does not come cheap. The car will cost no less than $60 (mind you a regular Hot Wheel sell for about 99 cents).
