Luxury gadgets that are probably worth more than your car

When “Tron” hit theaters in 1982, it introduced the world to the concept of the Grid, a digital world inside a video game inhabited by sentient programs. The film was a feast for the eyes, offering digital delights including the now famous light cycle.

Almost 30 years later, in 2010, the franchise was revisited in “Tron: Legacy,” sending viewers back to the grid, this time with impressively updated graphics, not to mention a stunning soundtrack. by Daftpunk.

The light cycle was improved, along with everything else, and it inspired the creation of an actual motorcycle replica pulled straight from the silver screen. Fittingly, the light cycle replica featured an electric motor instead of the typical combustion engine. According Thrillistit was commissioned for Hammacher Schlemmer, a high-end haulage company, and was auctioned by RM Auctions, a subsidiary of Sotheby’s.

While it was expected to sell for around $40,000, the highest bid nearly doubled, selling for the ridiculous sum of $77,000 (via CBS). All things considered, that’s not too bad for a bike that can get you to work while avoiding Clu’s nefarious clutches.
