Hmmm. A Tron reference?

Kind of reminds me of the books Neuromancer or Snow Crash.

Red just feels a bit weird, I think green (the color of computer boards) would have been more appropriate.

Looks to be a reference to Dead Space?

I'm sorry, Flynn. I'm afraid I can't do that.

I kinda feel impotent as a nerd with this shirt, cause I feel like it's a reference to something, but I can't grasp what. The way he's talking about someone in the computer makes it seem like a Tron reference, but the art style is all wrong for that.

I am so confused.

I don't think this is a reference to any specific pop culture property, and that's why I like it.

It's hitting my love of cyberpunk pretty hard.

I've had both red and blue boards!

Edit: A yellow one, too.

I think this would look really good as a poster, but I'm not quite sure how it would look on a person. It seems like the design wouldn't match up with the silhouette of my body, and that would make me sad.

This is totally a Tron reference, from near the end of the (original) movie, when all the programs are against the circular wall around the MCP and they are being erased.

I like it, but yeah, I'm not sure how it will be on a shirt with the red on black.

I knew it, the interwebz is spying on us. I just never knew it was named Kip. Kinda creepy really.

I think the silhouetted human figure laid over the circuits creates a neat effect and the dark red on black plays into that. This is one of those shirts that I might not kick out full price for but would be happy to see in a random set.

And is anyone watching the new Tron animation?

I like it. Kind of makes me think of the whole Singularity idea that I read about from people like Ray Kurzweil & Terence McKenna.

I dunno, I can see where you're coming from, but this seems more like just an overall reference to cyberpunk. It's got a bit of TRON in the description, but even more of just a cyberpunk-ish short story (which by the way, whoever wrote that, I'd love to see you make that into a full story!)

Definitely buying with my last few bucks till I get paid next week. If anyone knows how we could go about getting this as a poster, I'd love to get one. Same with another variant on this one, with a green color instead of red (I personally like the red though!). Gold would be cool too! Deus Ex: Human Revolution, anyone? ;)

Most definitely! RIP CLU 1.

Ah nevermind everyone, it IS a TRON reference! I went on the artist's site, and right here it says it's based on where CLU gets derezzed.

I was kind of hoping it wasn't a reference to anything after all. oh well.

I thought it said "deal located" as in "hey, I went to Woot! and found a deal!" Took me a while to realize the image has nothing to do with online shopping.

Funny enough, I was flip flopping on whether or not to get this design, but once I knew it was a Tron reference, it pushed me in to the buy category.

I want this shirt, but with all the QC issues they've been having I'm not sure its going to be worth it, especially with such an intricate design.

Alright, this shirt looks great, but that writeup... the writeup is brilliant.

I haven't purchased a shirt here in over a year even though I check every day. Everything has been cutesy or jokey or some kind of pop nerd reference.

This is a shirt I would buy. The only thing that bummed me out is that it is in fact a pop nerd reference. It's a cool design on its own and I like that it's not an obvious reference. I feel we should be able to have more cool non referential designs on here.

Great Shirt and such an awesome design. I am a bit sad that there was no batman shirt these past two weeks. C'mon Woot you guys even printed a shirt for the release of Portal 2!! Don't make send Bane after you. I'm done.

Awesome design, but I'm sick to death of black t-shirts. Half my novelty shirts are black. I like black, but its the dead of summer. This would look sick in a neon blue on navy or neon green on circuit board green.

Oh well, at least it's subtle and doesn't scream "HAY GUYS I'M WEARING A TRON™ SHIRT!!!"

I absolutely love it. I'm just getting back into Warhammer 40K, and I'm making a rogue Tau army using nothing but AI Drones, done in a tron-style black & red paint job. Literally painted the first model last night, and then I found this shirt this morning. It was an INSTANT buy for me.

I think you all have it wrong.... It's Sheldon.... And Leonard put him in the left circuit board from the left. Penny sang "little kitty " while they lit it up.

Which is a totally different thing!

Considering the last Batman Shirt The Dark Knight got pulled from the Reckoning, likely at the behest of the WB lawyers, I don't think Woot will be returning tha that well anytime soon.

Seconded. woot!artists design some pretty awesome shirts, but I think it's often overlooked that the writers do a pretty spectacular job of showcasing them. So, HATS OFF to all woot!writers, you guys definitely deserve a lot more credit than you get.
