Tron digitization of the body
by Critical Commons Manager `

The original Tron movie presents an amusing combination of cinematic voice synthesis with a command line interface when provoking a master computer to digitize a human being into cyberspace via laser scan. A combination of analogue and 3D videographics signify the entry into the mainframe computer's memory banks.
