360 degree basketball

Floor, walls, ceiling
  [vote for,

Put hoops in the exact center of each of the four walls. Could also put one mid-court sticking up from the floor, and one hanging from the ceiling. Fix several cameras to the walls at good vantage points around the court.

Build the whole thing in a room that can rotate 360 degrees, and turn it during play. The spectators would not be able to sit in this arena, but the view from the cameras would be dizzying and faster paced than Fred Astaire in Royal Wedding.

       //The spectators would not be able to sit in this arena// 5 point harnesses in every seat?

       // seat harnesses ? //   

       Or gimbaled seating somewhere in the arena that wouldn’t interfere with play. Limited space so those would be top-dollar, premium seats.

       I think this would be pretty cool to apply to any sport for that matter. Logistics might be a bear but would be entertaining to see the players adjust to the court movement.

       //apply to any sport// I'm not 100% convinced this would work for snooker or curling. Darts would be excellent if the rotation of the room was controlled by the opposing player to the one standing on the oche.

       // any sport ? //   

       Any kind of swimming events would be off, too.

       No, I think swimming events would be fine - a bit sloshy, but basically fine or at least, no less dangerous or weird than any other sport
