GoPro camera captures what it's like to drive a Hot Wheels car

  1. Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars were – and still are – a part of millions of kids’ childhoods. Much of the fun associated with the pint-sized vehicles involves imagining what it might be like to be in the driver’s seat during a wild off-road adventure, catching some major air or simply whizzing across the kitchen table.

    Over the summer, YouTube user 5MadMovieMakers published an incredible “Road Trip” video that involved strapping a GoPro camera to a Hot Wheels car and following it on chaotic journey through backyards, sand boxes and even a swimming pool (thanks to the magic of editing, of course).

    Seeking to outdo itself, the channel has now posted a “Hot Wheels Stunts” video in which we’re taken for a ride on a mini car as it performs all sorts of aerial acrobatics. If you loved the previous clip, you’ll surely appreciate this one as well (I know I sure did).

    Found is a TechSpot feature where we share clever, funny or otherwise interesting stuff from around the web.

    Where's the clip where someone's father steps on the car, swears up a storm, and tosses it across the room?

    This sounds pretty salty.

    It's not like you will be set a couple thousands off while doing this "crazy" hot wheels roads =P the session is $200 and the sets used maybe a hundred at most?

    All it takes is a bit of imagination =)

    You mean "when your folks are well off, you are jobless and have nothing better to do". Nevertheless the clip was pretty cool, well at least I thought so.

    I used to experience all that in a 1st person perspective from the passenger seat of the car when my wife used to drive. :D

    Don't know what is worse, he is tied financially in both circumstances.

    Nah, I was just pulling her leg, she was a good driver while she drove. I was just teasing her and she didn't think I would post that comment. :)
