Have you ever wandered the streets of Spain with at least eight of your friends, happened across a flat stretch of pavement and instantly felt the urge to play a game of pick-up soccer?
Now you can, thanks to Nike. And lasers.
In promoting their new line of street-specific soccer shoes (FC247), a traveling team from Nike Football Spain will show up and install a portable soccer field, all demarcated by lasers. Maybe someday this will be available to everybody as an app, but right now the technology is only being tested in Madrid.
Not that most pick-up games need an out-of-bounds line, but who could pass on a field made of laser beams?
