Designer Miguel Cotto has created the bike of the future with this sleek and robotic design, reminding the lightcycles of the movie Tron. The center chassis structure looks somewhat similar to a Harley Davidson whereas the wheel hubs are giant roller bearings.
Remember the movie Tron?
Tron is a 1982 American science fiction film by Walt Disney Pictures, written and directed by Steven Lisberger. It stars Jeff Bridges, Cindy Morgan, Bruce Boxleitner, Dan Shor and David Warner. Tron was one of the first films from a major studio to use computer graphics extensively. Tron is famous for its distinctive visual style with stunning 3D graphics in a blazingly colorful, geometrically intense cyberspace landscape.
Tron was also one of the first harbingers of what the coming 3D Internet might look like.
Miguel Cotto’s concept bike reminds of the ‘Light Cycles’.
Light cycles are fictional vehicles designed by Syd Mead for the simulated world of the Tron universe. (Syd Mead is the industrial designer who also created futuristic vehicle designs in science-fiction films such as Aliens and Blade Runner.)
Enjoy the original Tron lightbike scene.
These two-wheeled vehicles resemble motorcycles and leave walls of colored light behin them. Players are in constant motion on a battle playfield, creating a wall of colored light behind them as they ride. If players hit a wall, they are out of the game – meaning their craft explodes and they die. The last surviving player in the game wins.
