Hot Wheels Camera Car

OK so maybe no direct uses for professional applications, but very cool and I so would have wanted one when I was a kid. Hot Wheels now sells cars that have a built in camera, LCD screen, playback controls, internal flash memory, and a USB connector to pull footage off all in the standard tiny Hot Wheels car size.  Not only that, go to their website and you can then download a video editing program and drivers (PC Only) for free. The specs aren’t great, with 640×480 resolution VGA camera and 5.7Mbps data rates (12 min. recording on car). But, you can mount it in a holder and to your bike helmet. I guess smashing your cars, and in my neighbors case when I was a kid, burning your Hot Wheels with lighter fluid is no longer as cool, or at least you can make a movie about your burning cars…  They retail in the US for about $50.
