Athletic uniforms reinvented

This is crazy! An Australian research team has come up with a prototype design for electroluminescent basketball uniforms, which display statistical information (points scored, fouls committed) and tactical info (which team is winning, when the shot clock has almost run out) right on the jersey. Read the article and a quote from it:

The simple, coloured display panels are attached to each vest and connected to a small computer, about the size of an iPod, strapped to each player's body. These computers communicate wirelessly with a central control system, installed at the side of the court, which keeps track of all relevant statistics as the game goes on.

This is probably the craziest uniform innovation since the Cameroon National soccer team went with one piece and sleeveless kits. I wonder what Nike will have to say about this.
