Uniforms with built in scoreboards?

In a report from the CBC, the story says lumenescent panels on the front of the shirt can show how many fouls or points a player has and how much time is left to play, while the back of the shirt has the game score.

Interesting enough, but can you imagine what the advertising people can do with this?

It seems like this invention is great for the players, but bad for TV viewers. The players can easily access information they usually never have access to (player stats/fouls) but it seems like it could become to cluttered and distracting for the TV Viewer, who already has access to player stats.

Absolutely amazing. I think it's absolutly stupid as well. I could maybe see the benefit of knowing how many fouls a player has about .5 seconds faster than you could find out by asking the official scorer. But having to look at a jersey to know the score? What's wrong with the scoreboard that's on the wall? At least that one's not moving.

And if they could somehow make that basketball uniform absorb sweat and turn it into electricity to power the unit, THEN they'd impress me.

Hmmm, if you gave one of those to Shaq he could supply enough power for all of South Florida. They may be on to something here afterall!

One of the pictures shows a battery pack underneath the uni which explains why it glows. That's at risk of getting smashed when someone's playing b-ball with those on. I wouldn't try it.

So, either my point guard is in foul trouble, or their service engine light is on.

Which brings up every team that uses said jerseys will have to dedicate a page on their site, probably 2 pages in their program guides, and a 5 minute trailer explaining why their child is getting seizures from Allen Iverson's stats.

The pro side of this jersey is, you can play Simon with yourself during timeouts and technical foul shots.
