Hot Wheels Video Racer lets kids record the action

New toy has a VGA video camera mounted at the front to record the thrills and spills of spinning round the track. There's even a small LCD on the undercarriage that lets you play back the clips.

I'm not a fan of Hot Wheels, but I might buy Mattel's latest tin can car, the Video Racer. The vehicle has a VGA video camera mounted at the front to record the thrills and spills of spinning round the track. There's even a small LCD on the undercarriage that lets you play back the clips.

There's no external memory storage option, but the Video Racer is able to capture up to 12 minutes of footage. There's also an optional case that allows you to clip the racing recorder to a skateboard or bicycle.

Mattel is supplying a simple-to-use video editor with the Video Racer that allows users to edit clips and add sound and effects.

According to the representative in the video above, the Video Racer will be available in fall. It will retail for $59.99.
