The Tron lightcycle is one of the coolest vehicles of all time...and now you can drive it in GTA Online, thanks to a new “Deadline” mode. The update is one of the best additions to GTA Online in a long time.
This is the dumbest and best thing I’ve seen anyone do with an electric vehicle.
Roborace, the new autonomous racing series set to run alongside Formula E, has just released the final design for its unbelievably cool race car designed by the guy who created the Tron: Legacy Light Cycle, and it’s both a beautiful design achievement and an engineering breakthrough.
Since we’re all pretty much living Tron these days, chasing computer-generated squirrels and pigeons and shit all over the place, it seemed like it might be a good time to revisit that most iconic of life-in-a-computer pastimes: the Light Cycle battle. Could something like this exist in the real world, somehow? I…
To build hype for something Yamaha is qualifying as a “big bang” to be unveiled at the EICMA show in Milan November 16th, the company dropped this very Japanese Tron-like teaser video.
If you’ve always had your heart set on a TRON Lightcycle — a working one, not a matchbox toy — you’d better start saving. The going rate (as much as there is a going rate for one-off movie-replica collectibles) is $77,000.

There are so many artificial intelligences that are evil: they try to kill their creator, or kill all humans, or take over the world, or all three. But some AIs do this with charisma and style, while others are complete dicks about it. Here’s a look at a dozen computers who must have had “be an asshole” near the…
At a Thursday midnight showing, I sat in a theater filled with nerds waiting for the start of Tron Legacy in 3D. Why were we all there? Light cycles, of course.
Just in time for Tron: Legacy, a Florida bike shop put together 10 custom-built, street-legal Tron Light Cycle lookalikes. For a cool $55,000, you could be riding one to the Dec. 17th premiere.
The coolest advertising feat here at Comic-Con was Disney dropping a full-size model of the new Tron: Legacy Light Cycle behind a replica storefront of Kevin Flynn's Arcade. We were there to see it unveiled live. Full gallery below.
A few nuggets of automotive goodness have already seeped out of the nerdry that is this week's Comic-Con, but nothing is getting us excited more than this quick peek at some in-movie footage of the trailer from the new Tron 2 movie (alternately called Tr2n or Tron 2.0).
