Nike is taking a nighttime approach to track running with its interactive pop-up track in Manila, Philippines. They’re calling it “the world’s first LED running track,” and runners can participate in a virtual race against themselves on it.
How does it work? The 200-meter long stadium is constructed of a wall of LED screens in the shape of a shoe, which projects an avatar of yourself after running an initial lap time and while donning a sensor on your shoe. Runners can then compete against their avatar around the track with personalized lap-by-lap feedback on pacing and other stats.
Forget stopwatches, this is the track of the future.
