The USA Science and Engineering Festival that’s been going on for most of October on the Mall is entering its final weekend. As one of the events of the closing extravaganza, Disney and the National Academy of Engineering will have a TRON-themed exhibit, featuring activities based around themes explored in TRON: Legacy, like cybersecurity, virtual reality, and glow-in-the-dark jammies. On Sunday the 24th, the motion-capture technology used to make the film will be demonstrated by VICON, the company that makes it.

Kevin Flynn’s light cycle will also be there. You know, for the kids. Who have no idea WTF TRON is, but you’ll be too busy having a nostalgia geek-out to care.
