Dutch company LEDSSPORTS looks set to solve one the major problems associated with the plethora of sports played on multi-purpose courts - LED court markings that can be turned on and off depending on the sport being played. Instead of the myriad lines on multisport surfaces which often confuse players, LEDSSPORT's Pulastic ® LED Court illuminates just one set of markings at a time, while the others stay "invisible". The company also makes a range of other LED sports-related innovations, including a set of lights which function as a basketball shot clock.

For years the marketplace has been expressing a wish for a solution for the maze of lines on sports floors - as a kid I grew up playing in stadiums where volleyball, basketball, netball and a host of other sports shared an arena, and the array of lines was often bewildering.

Another strong benefit of a visually less complicated game court or playing field is the possibility of professional television coverage. With Pulastic ® LED Court a special floor cover is no longer required. By just pressing the right button, the specific playing field illuminates while leaving the other lines "invisible". Last-but-not-least, the Pulastic ® LED Court facilitates a lot of possibilities for the visually handicapped.   Not surprisingly, the technique is now being developed for a range of other applications, including interactive gaming, emergency routing and interactive flooring in the medical care areas.

I wonder if this technique could be used for lane marking that could change during peak hours? Also, you could have changing speed limits displayed on the roads according to the conditions.

@Edgar these types of sign have been around for a year or two - usually used on motorways to warn drivers of hazards ahead. A good example here: http://bit.ly/pM0tw5
