Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - The homecourt of the MSUM basketball teams has undergone a serious upgrade in recent months. A brand new floor, new videoboards, new seating, and now this: a hovercam.

It's a battery operated hovercraft with two cameras attached. The craft can go virtually anywhere and even do flips. The two onboard cameras feed directly into the new videoboard and should enhance the overall fan experience at Nemzek. Tying the hovercraft into the videoboards is a first for the area.

Doug Peters, MSUM Athletic Director: “It's hi-definition, got two cameras in it that floats around and can capture game shots, crowd shots, do it live and stream it to the videoboard and adds another bit of excitement to an already great atmosphere.”
