Have you ever wished you could shrink yourself down into a tiny race car driver and jump behind the steering wheel of a Hot Wheels hot rod? Well now you can get that exact experience without having to find a brand-new quadruple extra-small wardrobe.

The Hot Wheels Video Racer is a new toy car that comes with a built in video camera and LCD screen. Now when you race your cars around your house, you can record everything that happens. It’s like you’re sitting in the driver’s seat and it’s amazing!

The camera sits directly at the front of the car, where a hood ornament would be on a real car. For such a small camera, there are a couple of cool settings and the quality of the video is impressive. Good results are guaranteed as you can set the camera for indoor or outdoor lighting depending on where you’re racing. Once you’ve recorded your footage, you can watch and delete clips on the screen underneath the car.

If you like what you see on the small screen, you can then plug your car into your computer and edit the footage on your machine. The Hot Wheels editing software is PC and Mac compatible and comes with customizable music, sound effects, transitions and graphics. The only drawback: the car doesn’t come with any track pieces, so you’ll have to build a homemade obstacle course to pull off cool stunts.

Still, now you can film every one of your cool Hot Wheel adventures. Strap it to your wrist, your bike, anywhere you like - you can capture it all on film. And I guarantee this mini-car can do a lot of stuff your parents' minivan can't.
