Kobe Bryant has seen and done just about everything during the course of his magnificent basketball career, so when the Black Mamba is impressed by something, that's a good clue for the rest of us to take notice.During a recent trip to China, Bryant helped Nike debut a new LED court that resembles a video game with its technology and design. The Los Angeles Lakers superstar admits that he didn't even know that what he experienced was possible.As you can see, the court is more than just eye candy. The interactive lightning will help with practices and training, and from there the possibilities are endless.According to Dezeen Magazine, the floor has motion sensors to track the movement of players:The court can lay out sets of moves for individual people, create drills based on Bryant's training programme that are adapted for the court, and respond to mistakes as well as display performance stats. ... When not in use for training and games, the LED surface can display almost any combination of moving images, graphics and colours.As a tribute to Kobe, the court is located in a training facility called the House of Mamba in Shanghai. It is part of Nike's "Rise" initiative with youth players in China, which gives them a chance to get on the floor with Kobe, LeBron James and other NBA stars, in advance of its World Basketball Festival in Barcelona in September.Related Story: Byron Scott Predicts Kobe Bryant's Production For Upcoming Laker SeasonRelated Story: USA Hoops Stars Reminisce About First Day At School After Summer Vacation
