Product Description

Amazon.com

Ever wonder just how fast you get your favorite Hot Wheels car to go? Or how speedy you are on your own bike? You don’t need to be pulled over by a cop to find out. The Hot Wheels Radar Gun does the job for you, using all sorts of state-of-the-art technology. Just set the scale to 1/64th or real speed, and MPH or KPH, aim the gun at objects coming toward you or moving away, squeeze the trigger, and check out the digital readout. Simple as that! Now you can set new speed goals, and actually find out if you’ve attained them. The 1/64th scale speed reflects the fact that Hot Wheels cars are 1/64th the size of a real car. So if a Hot Wheels car goes 10 MPH, the calculation is 10 MPH X 64 = 640 MPH! Now we begin to understand why those wheels are so hot! Requires four "AAA" batteries (not included).--Emilie Coulter

We are having fun with this toy.
Colorado Mom
Should be sold as a toy item without the claim it does speed estimation.

He's gotten into Hotwheels racing and can clock the speed of his cars.

we gave each of our grandsons one of these,and it has been non stop racing in our house since. they actually lived up to our expectations and performed just like they are advertised. old hot wheel tracks have been dusted off.our stairs are no longer for just climbing and the competion is fierce as to which car is faster. even the wiener mobile was competitive. this great toy is not just for small cars it also has a full size feature so that you can see how fast your bikes or even skateboards are going. the manufacture is quick to caution the user not check the speeds of full size autos for obvious safety reasons. but when used with common sense and simply following the enclosed instructions you are not going to be disappointed.

My son got this for his 7th birthday and loves it. He now keeps it in the van and checks the speed of everything and everyone. He even lets me know when I'm going a little too fast. It's a great gift at a good price!

Ok, I don't know who gets more of a blast out of this toy-we parents, or the kids! It's amazing to me that this toy is available in any store-especially considering it's price when so many hot holiday toys are so expensive. Everyone wants this thing in their hands-that being said it is tough to share, but it sure does yield serious competition for racing via practically any means. Exercise anyone?!! Skateboarders, inline skaters, runners, scooters, biking, frisbie and ball throwing, flying birds, autos of all kinds...oh, wait, were we supposed to play this with Hot Wheels pocket cars-yeah, it does that too (for rainy days I suppose)! Awesome fun!!!

My son loves this toy. I love it too because it didn't come with a bunch of little pieces (Our toy room is always cutter with little legos, magnets etc). My son didn't want this because it was hot wheels. He wanted to see how fast he and his friends were going on their scooters. It has been a blast, trying to clock our bird, sledding, and my son occasionaly hiding behind a tree to see if cars are speeding. This toy was worth every penny and I can see it being fun for many years to come. He is 8 and neighborhood kids from 5 to 15 have all enjoy the radar gun. I also must say this is a great toy for kids with high functioning autism/aspergers.

Verified Purchase
I purchased 2 of the above product as Christmas presents for my 2 nephews aged 8 and 10 years. The guns, which tag the speed of actual passing automobiles, really work. Both boys were and continue to be thrilled with their guns. The guns are sturdy and hold up to being dropped on the pavement and tossed around by active kids. All in all, a great purchase.

Verified Purchase
I bought several of these radar guns for a presentation/demo where I teach kids about the basic math and physics of radar, including Doppler. I read some of the negative reviews, and I want to make sure that people understand what they're using. The maximum Doppler shift occurs when the direction of motion (straight line in the direction the object is moving) is parallel to the line of sight (straight line between the radar gun and the object). That's because the wave is compressed (if approaching) or stretched (if receeding) by the motion of the object. If the direction of motion is perpendicular to the line of sight, as it is while the object is passing directly in front of you, there is no compression or expansion of the wave - no Doppler shift. In that case there is no basis for a speed measurement.

To make this point with my demo, I have the students point the radar gun straight down the long leg of a train track and wait for the train to come around. This gives the best and most stable measurement. Then I have the students point the radar gun directly across the track, and wait for the train to come around. This time the measurement is very unstable - the radar gun has a broad beam and sees the train as it's approaching, as it's passing by, and as it's receeding. The kids see a jumble of numbers, but they understand why.

The first instinct of most kids is to follow the train as it moves around the track with the radar gun. If you try to use the radar gun in this way without understanding the underlying physics and geometry of the Doppler shift, you may believe that it is not working.

My 35-year-old son bought this for his nephews (3 and 5) for Christmas - but he couldn't wait to get it out of the box! Once it was out, both big and little boys had fun - and grandma even joined in a challenge to see who was the fastest runner. The full-scale feature immensely adds to the fun. I can see that my stairs, long used only for getting to the bedrooms, will once again become a raceway for everything from Hot Wheels to the hamster ball!

Get one - you will have fun, no matter what your age is!

This is a great product that really works. Obviously it is not as sensitive as the Police ones but great nonetheless. The scaling button for your Hot Wheels cars is a nice touch but it is very hard to aim at such a small object.

Great good value toy and nice and solid too.
