Innovation Of The Day -- Street Legal Tron Light Cycle

The fine folks at Hammacher Schlemmer have done the improbable and brought the lightbike from Tron to real life.

Product 11862 is powered by a fuel-injected Suzuki 996cc, 4-stroke engine, features hubless wheels made from "former truck tires built up then custom-shaped to fit onto one of two counter-rotating rims spinning within each other, providing the broad-tired authenticity of the computer cycles from the movie." It will set you back a cool $55K. Olivia Wilde not included.
