Everyone knows the Brooklyn Nets have a new home – the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The arena opens this weekend with Jay-Z pulling off 7 shows in 8 nights. And then later in the season, the Nets hit the new court. Asides from the shows and basketball games, the arena just might be the most high-tech stadium in sports, with a steel and glass exterior ringed by the Oculus, extending out 117 feet and hovering 30 feet above the main plaza. Its 360-degree high-definition display will show everything from game highlights to art installations. Inside the 18,200-seat facility, fans will enjoy free Wi-Fi, as well as an app that allows them to order food without leaving their seats. There’s also 8,000 square feet of LED signage, highlighted by a high-definition scoreboard visible from all the main doors.
