Video: TRON: Legacy Premiere Sees Halfpipe With Projected Imagery, Awesomeness Ensues

Think skateboarding on the street is hard enough? How about on a halfpipe with all sorts of glowing lights and projected explosions? To celebrate the premiere of TRON: Legacy, a company by the name of Eness mapped a halfpipe as a display for use with a projector. When these, presumably professional, skateboards went back and forth on the ramp their motion was tracked by a digital camera and followed by all sorts of projected graphics – making for a very TRON effect.

I don’t know about you guys, but this looks like just about the most distracting thing ever. Sure it looks cool, but I can’t imagine taking a ride on it myself. Seems like it would definitely spell disaster.
