A majestic 22 minute distillation of Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1989) set to Daft Punk’s Tron: Legacy (2010) soundtrack. Editor Patrick Collins sez:

I always thought the two film’s scores were very reminiscent of one another and I wanted to use that to give this recut a more updated feel while still maintaining some aspect of the pacing and staging of the original (very long) film and it’s big special effect scenes.

Full screen and headphones a must.

The road-ready prototype C-01 – Lotus Cars’ first ever motorcycle – designed by Daniel Simon, who coincidentally (or not) designed the light cycles for Tron: Legacy.

Powered by a V Twin engine, the C-01 has a frame made from carbon fiber, titanium and aerospace grade steel.

Actual production of the bike will begin with a limited run of 100 of these handsome hogs, decked out in various Lotus racing liveries.

The Freerider Skatecycle, designed by Alon Karpman at Brooklyn Workshop and winner of a Bronze 2010 IDEA Award:

The Freerider Skatecycle is a self propelled hubless skate capable of riding on flat ground or tackling any skatepark. The 9 Inch wheels makes it easier to overcome objects in your way and is very durable. Weighing just 7.3 lbs, it folds easily, and can even sit over your shoulder freeing up your hands when you walk. Now part of the permanent collection at the Henry Ford Museum, the Freerider Skatecycle is in stock and available for $149.95.

Tron Skatecycle belongs in the movie (Gizmodo)
