Ironically, one day were browsing a few websites, and saw the first trailer for the new TRON sequel, which is due to be released later this year.
As we were big fans of the first movie (what computer nerd isn't?), we were really happy to see a trailer of it, given that up to that point it was mainly rumours but nothing concrete.
The trailer provided us with some inspiration, and later that day, after putting our parts together, we saw that there was some similarities between our project, which at this point was nameless, and the 'recognizer' from the movie.
We quickly decided to change our plans and opt for a more TRON-orientated theme, including the name.
After we confirmed our custom parts were good to go and everything fitted as needed (all the holes in the right place and so forth), we took everything apart to give us more room to continue work on the next pieces.
Most of the work was performed using a standard scroll saw and manual tools, so we had to sand and polish all the edges after cutting them out, which also took a lot of time. Judging by the numbness of our hands afterwards, we'd also say it kills a lot of nerves.
