LEDs Replace Floor Tape at Thetapeworks.comWe sell tape for temporary gym floor marking. We sell lots of it and even operate a web site called volleyballtape.com where we discuss matters related to floor taping.

Still, an article we came across in Gizmodo got us excited, even though it could eventually mean the end of the need for gym floor taping.

A Dutch company caled LEDSSPORTS is developing a system that uses LEDs embededd in the floor to create lines appropriate for the game being played.  A court outlined for basketball could instantly become a volleyball court with the flick of a switch.  Change from men’s basketball to fencing without painting or re-taping a single line.

If you are interested in seeing this system in action, take a look at these images from the Ronald McDonald Center in Amsterdam.
