You'd be daft not to wish this Tron-themed bar was your own, punk

Students at the University of California, Santa Barbara recently decided to take it upon themselves to turn a half bookcase into something more relevant to their lives. Naturally, they turned it into a bar. This Tron-themed bar--fittingly called the Grid--comes with a profusion of LED strips and EL wire. As for the strobing light show, that's controlled by an Arduino Mega controller board. It might be the perfect place for the flashing Heineken Ignite beer bottle. Now, the only thing we need to make this complete is for the people behind it to release instructions.
