GET FUTURISTIC TRON SKATEBOARDING & TRON: LEGACY SKATEBOARD

Old-time skaters ENESS jumped at the chance to bring skateboarding into the future by blending interactivity and high-tech mastery for the Tron Legacy premiere.

Each rider is equipped with an ipod and our custom-built app to measure their air time and trigger graphics whilst in the air and on landing.

A custom ramp was fabricated from steel to support a floating platform.

The infamous ENESS skaters went sci-fi at the ‘Tron Legacy’ premiere. Looking at the video, if I were a skater, I would never pass up the opportunity to ride the ramps with amazingly cool light effects.

Made to look like a fantastical Tron world, the illuminated skate ramps are absolutely epic. Watch the video above to see the ENESS skaters take the premiere by storm with their sci-fi skateboarding – VIA TRENDHUNTER

Undoubtedly one of 2010’s most anticipated films, Disney’s TRON: Legacy finally hit cinemas earlier today. This video was created by Andrew Dorn from scenes captured at the premiere and is accompanied by music from Galapagoose. The event saw Will Hine, Harley Powell, Alexi Dowley and Jay Huggins skate up and down a small half pipe that was fitted with interactive lighting software, keeping in theme with the technologically advanced motion picture.

That was awesome, but how about  Freerider Skatecycle? It is an awesome product all on its own.  Combine that with what’s likely to be one of the biggest movies of the year and you get something epic: the Tron Skatecycle.

Created by Alon Karpman of Brooklyn Workshop, the custom-built skateboard is actually a Freerider, modded to sport the colors and lights of the movie’s signature Lightcycles.    The results are impressive, to say the least — enough to give modding-incapable Tron nerds some serious geek-envy.

If Alon was looking for a way to drum up interest in the Freerider (which is slated to ship end of January), this Tron-inspired mod definitely does it good.  The Tron Skatecycle is actually built in much the same way as his usual hubless two-wheeled self-propelling board — it has a solid aluminum frame and composite body parts, with 32 x 6.5 x 8.5-inch dimensions.  Of course, it sets itself apart by sporting a darker finish (to hide itself in the dark) and circles of light to get a similar look to the futuristic crotch rockets they ride in the movie.

With costumes, toys and full-sized motorcycles bearing the likeness of both the characters and the vehicles in the movie having come out already, we imagine the first-day screening of Tron Legacy to be downright nuts, with people likely donning their best merchandise on display.  That’s why I’m staying home on the 17th and waiting till next week to see it.    Yeah, I’m that guy who doesn’t enjoy your shameless geekery. Does that actually make a jealous closet geek? VIA COOLTHINGS
