Hot Wheels Zoom In Car Carries a GoPro Camera Down the Track

I’d wager just about everyone has played with a Hot Wheels car at some point in their life. I know I played with lots of them as a kid, and my son loved them when he was small. We built more tracks than I can count, and I always wondered what going through the tracks in a car would be like. Hot Wheels has a new car called Zoom In that will let you enjoy your tracks from a whole new perspective.

The Zoom In is a rolling mount for your GoPro Session camera. Simply clip your camera into the cradle, and then you can flick it down the track. The first thing that came to mind was whether the top-heavy GoPro would make it hard to get the car to make it through the track, but Hot Wheels says that the camera car will go through the loops, curves, and jumps just fine thanks to a flip-up mounting bracket that maintains a low center of gravity when locked in place.

You can check out some sample footage of the Hot Wheels Zoom In mount in the video below. It looks pretty awesome:

Best of all, the Zoom In will retail for just $1.09 – the same price as other basic Hot Wheels cars. Of course, the Go Pro Session is not included, which will set you back $120 or more, depending on the version you go for.
