Get Transported into the visually stunning digital world of Disney's upcoming theatrical release TRON: Legacy and examine where movie fantasy and the 21st century's real Grand Challenges for Engineering intersect. You'll see how 3-dimensional scanning and printing are bringing the real and the virtual worlds closer together. You'll learn how virtual reality is shaping the practice of medicine and try your hand at brain surgery...on a computer generated replica of a real patient! Finally, you'll take a trip into the TRON digital grid through an incredible light drawing experience created especially for this exhibit.
