TRON-Themed NES Offers Glowy Goodness

On the surface, this TRON-inspired NES mod doesn’t look like much. But when the lights go down, it’s like a Jeff Bridges and Bruce Boxleitner invited your console to a party.

Once fully charged with black light, Thretris‘ modded NES really comes to life, glowing with a brightness that could only be bested if it were electroluminescent. For added effect, Thretris added some cool blue LEDs behind the power switches. The mod also has a pair of 1/4″ audio jacks so you can hook the console up to a stereo system (even though the sound is still mono).

The glowy stuff used to create the TRON circuit design not just reactive to UV and black light, it keeps glowing for quite some time after the light source has been removed.

Too bad they never made a TRON game  for the NES. Thretris, you’d better get working on that glowing Intellivision.
