Tron 2 Vehicle Designer Daniel Simon Is an Intergalactic Hardware Visionary

Daniel Simon, the guy designing the lightcycles and other crazy vehicles for Tron 2, previously published Cosmic Motors, a compendium of otherworldly vessels you will never drive, but spend your life wishing you could.

You can hit the guy's blog for new concepts, or buy his 2007 book—$19.77 isn't a lot for all those vehicles plus the impossibly hot women Daniel likes to draw as pilots and pit crew. The vibe, as you can see in the gallery, is somewhere between Star Wars and Firefly, with a touch of Talladega Nights thrown in for good measure.
