The making of a Light Session- Tron Premiere- ENESS from ENESS on Vimeo.

This is pretty cool. Because the promotional budget at Disney for Tron Legacy was out of this world, they were able to have this skateboard ramp installation by ENESS at their Melbourne, Australia premiere.

ENESS explains "Our custom built software allows us to 3d map the  ramp and track the skateboards in real-time. Each rider is equipped with an iPod Touch to measure air time and trigger effects, IR Lights and camera is used to track the skater’s position."

If that doesn't make sense, just watch the video above. This is a good example of when a big budget actually means something rather innovative.
