Benefits
HANDS-ON CREATIVITY

Embrace your inner mechanic — and experience an awesome sense of accomplishment — as you build your remote-control vehicle from the chassis up. Car parts are made of lightweight, durable plastic for superior performance and maneuverability.

YOU’RE IN THE DRIVER’S SEAT

TechMods™ puts you behind the wheel, in total control! Use the app to race the high-speed, ultra-agile RC car — no remote needed. Then in Car as Controller mode, use the physical car to race through the digital world and master in-app challenges.

CUSTOMIZABLE PROFILE

The more you play and level up, the more coins and rewards you earn. Redeem them for virtual treasures, so you can customize your car’s digital specs and performance and change avatar skins.

HOURS OF AMPED-UP PLAY

Why Indiegogo?

For many years, we at Hot Wheels® have developed and tested new products on our own. With diecast cars and monster trucks and other products we know very well, we’ve been pretty successful. Hot Wheels* is the #1 selling toy in the world*, after all! However, for us to truly create the play experiences of the future, we want to experiment with products that challenge our status quo. Enter: TechMods™. We have a lot of experience creating toy cars and a ton of research on how kids play with them, but introducing a gaming RC car is exciting new territory for us.

So, we’d like to make sure what we know applies to TechMods™ — and also find out what we don’t know — by inviting early adopters into the process via Indiegogo. What is your experience with TechMods™? Tell us what you like and don’t like about the product.
