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!

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.

We're certainly covering the gamut of possible gadgets that could be inspired, and themed, by the recently released TRON: Legacy movie.

PDP Tron: Legacy Inspired Controller is Licensed by Microsoft, Costs $50

The TRON: Legacy-themed accessories aren't going to stop showing up just because the movie is now available to watch in theaters. But, when they look as good as this new design from PDP, we can't really say that we're disappointed in that fact. Of course, this isn't the first controller with the TRON theme we've seen heading to the Xbox 360, but it is the first one we've seen that's actually licensed by Microsoft. It's up to you to decide whether or not that has anything to do with the fact that this controller looks so nice.

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.
