Most of us may be over the Tron-ification of nearly everything now that the movie is event has passed, but one installation in Milan has upped the ante on Tron designs with an amazing neon-laced take on an actual living space.
Creating a Tron Legacy homage out of a Segway seems like such a no-brainer, that I'm frankly amazed that we haven't seen one until now.
You might think that hiring Daft Punk is enough to make a film sound futuristic and "computery." But the makers of Tron Legacy actually faced the same tricky problem that the creators of the original film did: how do you decide what an entirely virtual universe set "inside" silicon computer chips should sound like? Go too natural, and it won't immerse viewers in a unique world; skew too synthetic, and the audience will laugh their way to the exits. Luckily, Disney had enough sense to trust the film's sound design to the alpha geeks at Skywalker Sound, who spent two years sampling everything from vintage synthesizers to real-world motorcycles to create Tron's signature audio effects. (They also got pretty tight with Daft Punk while they were at it.) The brain trust spoke to DVICE to give an inside look at how they updated the soundscape of Tron for 21st century audiences.

Disney's Tron Legacy features two characters played by Jeff Bridges — one old and wise, the other angry and digital. I've never quite decided whether I like the somewhat putty-faced look of the latter, but this new action-packed trailer features plenty of both.

Disney's released a teaser video featuring some of Daft Punk-heavy soundtrack from Tron Legacy. Now I don't know which I'm more excited for: all the pretty neon lines or the incredible music.
It doesn't take me a lot to get excited for Tron. I just want to see some pretty neon lines and some discs flying through the air. Tron Legacy is shaping up to be one crazy ride, though — they've even digitally remastered Jeff Bridges, for goodness sake.
Tron is just a movie. It's not real. You will never be able to ride a light cycle or play jai alai. I'm sorry. But what you can do is buy this awesome t-shirt, which glows in the dark and...
