Welcome to the creepily awesome Tron home

DuPont is asking designers to create furniture and other accoutrements you'd expect to find in the home of a Grid denizen. Peek inside the high-end home of your digital nightmares.

In today's Hollywood, a movie doesn't have to actually be good to be a success. Box office flops and critics' punching bags can live on and prosper with the right marketing and merchandising strategy--or in the case of Disney's " Tron: Legacy ," a super cool interior design project.

Disney is teaming with DuPont and a bunch of architects and designers to bring the world of the "Grid" to life, and this time without the use of expensive CGI effects.

Instead, they'll be using Corian--DuPont's trademark solid-surface material most commonly used in countertops--to create creepily sterile-looking furniture and all the other accoutrements you'd expect to find in the home of a Grid denizen... er, program.

Click through the gallery above to see digital renderings of the Tron pad, complete with a home entertainment center, a kitchen that's cooler than anything in stainless steel, and a hot tub you'll want to be sure to unplug for. A real-life version of the "Tron designs Corian" geek abode will exhibit at Milan Design Week from April 11-17, and we even hear Jacuzzi is involved in the project. Talk about a Sea of Simulation...
