After many successful years with label Virgin/EMI, the electronic music duo known as Daft Punk will be headed to Columbia records with the promise of a brand new full-length album set for this Spring. Though the details surrounding the new album are scant, we do know that Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo have indeed left Virgin records - this is a monster happening due to their extended period rocking and rolling under the label - nearly 17 years!

Oblivion 1080p Movie Trailer revealed with Joseph Kosinski attached

Oblivion 1080p Movie Trailer revealed with Joseph Kosinski attached

Because you've more than likely never heard of the story behind "Oblivion", you're going to have to start with a viewing of the trailer and an understanding that this movie was first a graphic novel - aka a comic book. This story is about the future, it's got a lot of rather confusing elements made to excite your pants off, and you're going to freak out over the massive amounts of action in the trailer alone. You'll not know more until the third paragraph of this post after the trailer is viewed.

ISS Star Trails video sings space in beams of light

If you're looking for a lovely video to watch today while you eat lunch, journalist Christoph Malin has just what you're seeking - a "Star Trails" video showing time-lapse imagery captured by the International Space Station. The video you're about to see captures a collection of photos snapped by the ISS and places one image on top of another and another on another, making "Tron trails" through space. Accompanying this lovely set of images is music from a set of rather talented artists as well, starting with "Eileen" by Lee Rosevere and moving on to "Window #3" by Two Bicycles.

TRON: Uprising full trailer goes live

This week the folks at Disney have release the first full-length trailer for the upcoming TRON feature "Uprising", complete with release date. This next chapter in the TRON universe sits between the original movie and the recent feature-length sequel TRON: Legacy, here taking on a new form as a mix between 2D and CGI animation as opposed to live-action sequencing. This series contains a host of big-name voice actors and is set to run as a 10-episode mini-series via Disney.

You don’t want Google’s Project Glass

You don’t want Google’s Project Glass

This week we're getting our first "real" taste of the Google X project known as Project Glass, and with this preview comes a very Alpha look at how augmented reality might look coming from Google. In my lifetime, I've seen several iterations of what was just simply called Virtual Reality, this starting at Tron's long run and the pre-eminent "computer world" vision, stopping somewhere along the line for Nintendo's Virtual Boy, and ending up here with Google's glasses and transparent projection project. What the whole tech world should be asking at this point is this: why limit ourselves by leaving the house?

Lit Motors C-1 self-balancing motorcycle brings Tron to reality

Lit Motors C-1 self-balancing motorcycle brings Tron to reality

Though it doesn't quite leave light ribbons behind it yet, the vehicle the folks at Lit Motors have created here is the closest you're going to get to Kevin Flynn's "vintage" white cycle from Tron: Legacy without entering The Grid yourself. What you're looking at here is more than an exercise in aesthetics, too, it's a fully-enclosed two-passenger electric motorcycle which is able to fully self-regulate its balance automatically. Kick it in the side just like you would that robotic dog you've all seen videos of - it'll right itself just the same!

I know I have spent my share of time thinking that Tronguy is a major dork. I am 100% sure that I am not the only one to think this. When you slide your portly frame into a skin tight, homemade Tron suit people are going to judge. Tronguy has landed himself in a commercial that is simply the geekiest and best commercial to ever hit the web.

Tron scooter is perfect for tiny Users

Tron scooter is perfect for tiny Users

It's no surprise to me that geeks tend to get their kids geeky toys. When my son was little the rode this red plastic motorcycle everywhere, wearing a motocross jersey that was five sizes too big. He would jump anything the bike and his 3-year-old-legs could make it over. If they had this Tron scooter when he was little you can bet he would have been rocking one. This scooter was apparently created by a designer at the Trek bicycle company.
