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.
