Hot Wheels 2011

Hot Wheels

I grew up playing with Hot Wheels toy cars. I built elaborate tracks, I rolled them around our kitchen floor, our driveway, and pretty much any surface that wheels would roll on.

I know that 30 years ago we all wanted jet-packs, and flying cars, and thought we’d be living on the moon by now, but while those things haven’t happened, it’s now 2011 and we’re on the verge of seeing Hot Wheels cars with video cameras built into them.

At $60 it may be a bit expensive for a kid’s toy, but I can see the hacker community making use of a small inexpensive camera for all sorts of home-built DIY projects from robotics to flying vehicles.

Who knows, maybe we’ll finally get those flying cars we wanted… and it looks like they’ll have built-in video cameras.
