You've probably seen the POV video of the Hot Wheels car going in, out, and around someone's neighborhood. Well, now Mattel is officially in the game with a GoPro mainline car, dubbed the Zoom In, you know, like Zoomin' - (On a side note, I wonder if the designers come up with these names, or if that's someone's sole job.)

It looks to be little more than a chassis with a clip on it, which is sized to fit the tiny GoPro cameras. That in itself is pretty cool - especially if you have a GoPro - but I look at that thing and think, "that's a lot of real estate for weight and mods." It looks to have a nice, wide wheelbase with your standard metal chassis. Could be a good all-around base for customs.

Sounds like this will the standard $1 mainline but I'm also guessing this will be hard to find once it is out in the wild. This has a little collectibility, but I also foresee people buying this and reselling it as a "camera accessory" for a lot higher price.


Discussion

I seen an article about it Im getting it for sure. The camera feature will help with videos for this website. It will also be gr8 4 competition. We could set up an extra lane and get a good view of who wins. I wonder if u could attach it sideways? If anyone knows let me know.

I think the GoPro is a cube, so you should be able to position it in any direction.

I've thought about having chase cars with a camera before but never bothered to really explore it much because speed is such a variable. I'm not sure you could guarantee cars stay in the frame. But it'll be cool to see what people do with it.

Mashable has a post about it too, along with a photo.

  • I saw one at Target but passed on it. I saw something somewhere that getting the camera is difficult? — Mopar_Mafia
