How-To:  Tron Couch

I’m hopeful that the enduring legacy of Tron: Legacy will not, so much, be the meh-OK movie itself, but a sweeping wave of physical Tronification that leaves our world decidedly more awesome than it was before. And Becky Stern is leading the charge. This project video, her first since taking up a new job at adafruit, shows how to electrically connect, and physically attach, EL accent wire to a sectional sofa. It recalls the Tron Bag project she co-authored with Limor Fried back in December 2010. Nice one, Becky! Keep ’em coming!

  1. What if you put the wire on the edges of the cushions? Can the wire take a beating from people sitting down and getting up? I’m guessing it can if it holds up on the book bag. Very cool!
