Hot Wheels never used to be like this

It seems that there is a growing trend that takes some classic toys and turns them into virtual artworks for us all to enjoy. In this case, we are looking at those retro style cars Hot Wheels! This project took around four years to build and to be honest this is a kid’s dream come true.

This is called Metropolis II and it is the idea of Chris Burden, who with a team of twelve people managed to create something wonderful with 1100 cars running on it all at the same time, just like a real town or city, but without all of the attitude and road rage thrown in too.
