Sep 27, 2016: Japan has created the first of its kind LED basketball court to be used in professional league play.In 2014, the Nike House of Mamba created a similar LED court in China, which can track player’s movement and draw virtual court lines.
The court is covered with LED light panels, and the floor is equipped with actual LED screens. The first game that was played on the new LED court was between Alvark Tokyo and Ryukyu Golden Kings at B. League. The LED court keeps track of player’s scores in real time and, also draws virtual logos and lines.
The game looked very much like a video game, giving an entirely new visual experience to audiences. This pilot basketball court is a first in the professional basketball games across the globe.
