TRON is pretty much the most awesome fusion of lights & fabric.

First there was the 1982 TRON film.

Then there wasTRON Legacy, which came out in 2010.

But DIY TRON guy is boss.


I found this awesome detailed tutorial on Instructables, in which a guy makes his own TRON suit with LED strips. The first suit he built (I’m assuming TRON v1.0) he used EL wire. He lists numerous reasons why EL wire is not suitable for this application & decided to go with LED strips instead.


Just in time for Halloween! Check it out here:

  1. But TRON guy’s costume doesn’t actually have any lights in it… could you post up some EL wire TRON-inspired projects to the blog?
