Japan and high-tech go hand in hand, so it shouldn't be a surprise that its newest basketball court follows that theme to a tee. The hardwood LED court surface is the world's first to be used in professional league play, according to Japanese publication 47 News(Japanese). That makes it a bit different from Nike's similar practice court in Shanghai from a few years back. As you can see from the tweets embedded below -- spotted by Kotaku -- the production is pretty nuts. Going all out for the halftime show might be expected, but even the pre-game run is crazy, with pyro, strobe lights and more. Good game, Yoyogi National Gymnasium.
