The Barclays Center in Brooklyn, home of the Nets, officially opened last Friday with impressive bragging rights: they are the most high-tech stadium in sports today.

So, what makes this $1 billion building so advanced? It boasts 8,000 sq. ft. of LED signage, a three-story tall HD center score board, free Wi-Fi, LTE and 3G service both inside and immediately outside the building and an app that lets you order food from your seat. More impressive yet is the Oculus, a 360 degree LED marquee that surrounds the street-level pavilion and will play videos, advertisements and can air footage live during games and performances.
