Tron toys galore

Movie tie-in toys and gadgets are the norm nowadays, but the original "Tron" holds a special place in the tech world for bringing a vision of the future that no other film did at the time. The makers of its sequel, "Tron: Legacy," are hoping to accomplish the same thing this time around.

Here are a few of the techie, or otherwise neat "Tron"-related products hitting the shelves in the next couple of months. The movie, starring Jeff Bridges , hits theaters December 17.
