We’ve seen some NBA franchises do some really cool things with 3D on court projections for their pregame introductions. The Cleveland Cavaliers, Miami Heat and Philadelphia 76ers are among some of the teams who have toyed around with on-court projections, and for the most part they’ve looked pretty damn cool.
However, a pro basketball league in Japan has taken things a step further. Instead of projecting onto the court from above, the court itself is made from a series of LED light panels that react to what’s going on during gameplay, making real life look a little bit more like a video game instead of video games looking more and more like real life. Check out how this court displays three-pointers.
I wonder how much the court surface affects the bounce of the ball.
