Ever tried one of those dance arcade games? The ones where you have to hop like an idiot from one foot to the next, looking nothing like anyone dancing in the history of dance?
Finally, someone has put the technology (well, something similar) to good use.
Designed to help train the final 30 Nike RISE contestants – a competition to find the best young Chinese basketball players – Nike’s LED/LCD basketball court is the largest touch sensitive screen in the world.
The court tracks players’ movements during training drills, then records the data for analysis. It can then be used to identify strengths and weaknesses and help people improve their game. (Tip: this isn’t the time or place to practise your Saturday night fever moves.)
