Melbourne’s 3D mapping Tron Legacy skateboard ramp

Australian based interactive design team ENESS built a very cool futuristic skateboard ramp for the Premiere of Tron Legacy in Melbourne, Australia, and a few Aussie skaters got to live out their boy dreams of participating in the real life skateboard computer game.

The ramp’s custom software captures 3d mapping of the skateboard ramp and real-time tracking of the skateboarders. Each rider is equipped with an iPod Touch with apps to measure air time and trigger effects, while infrared lights and cameras are used to track the skaters’ positions. Super rad, bro.
