The Futuristic, Tron-Inspired Tree Swing

Combining your love for Tron with all the childhood whimsy of swinging on trees, Spanish designer Germán González Garrido is making your neon-laced dreams a reality with his LED Light Swing.

Using electroluminescent tape along the sides and LED lights beneath the seat, the tree swing allows you to create your very own lightshow/rave in your backyard. Just don't take any pills from strangers, okay?

With a remote control, you can change the color and frequency of the lights, sending neon streaks through the air, or put it on a flash setting for a seizure-inducing evening of outdoor fun.

Garrido recommends installing it on a tall, broad Pine for a larger range of motion, and we recommend trying to swing high enough to go over the top. Who knows? You might wind up in the future.
