Extreme Design Legacy of the River TRON-Themed Room in Ice Hotel is Awesome [Video]

If you're a TRON fan, then you've probably been pretty happy with the TRON-themed accessories that have been released the last few months. You may have even given some serious thought into buying your own light cycle (we can't blame you). But, if you didn't want to spend the money to race around your city on one, maybe you'd prefer to stay in a room designed specifically to look like it was removed from the TRON world, and shoved into an ice hotel.

Designed by Ben Rousseau and Ian Douglas–Jones, of the UK-based Extreme Design, the new room is called the Legacy of the River, and it was created to bring the world of TRON to life. Just, in an ice hotel. The new room is part of the Art Suite within the world's largest ice hotel, which is located in Jukkasjärvi, Sweden. The designers used "futuristic" lighting sources, which are aimed to use far less power and energy than traditional lighting, throughout the room, as well as through the furniture itself.

Here's what Douglas-Jones had to say about the project:

"We are both massive TRON fans, so the timing of the release of Disney’s new 3D high-tech adventure, TRON: Legacy, this month was absolutely perfect. The suite itself takes most of it’s influence from a nightclub scene in the film involving one of our favorite music artist Daft Punk, who wrote the score for the film."

Check out the video below to see the room, and some of the set-up process that went into it. And if you're interested in stopping by, or staying fo awhile, the room will officially open tomorrow.
