If you grew up with Hot Wheels, then somewhere along the line you fantasized about what it would be like to be in the car while going through the loops of your track. The new Hot Wheels Zoom In GoPro cars makes those fantasies a reality.
As a part of the 50th anniversary for Hot Wheels, Mattel announced the release of Hot Wheels Zoom In. The die cast cars were built with the purpose of mounting a GoPro inside, giving you a driver’s point of view. The GoPro HERO Session or HERO 5 Session are the recommended cameras for the Hot Wheels Zoom In. The cars themselves cost only around a buck and you have to purchase the GoPro separately.
The idea of finally making a childhood dream a reality is more than appealing. Setting up a crazy track, complete with loops, jumps, and even spirals and then filming what it would be like to drive through such a track has dizzying potential. Watching videos that have already been made with this car brings on the same rush you would experience on a roller coaster or in a stunt car on a movie set. And it’s not just adults that this will appeal to. Kids can take this as an opportunity to learn more about making and editing videos.
