Turning Subway Cars Into Photo-Realistic Sports Venues For The Summer Games in Taiwan

Taipei City, the capital of Taiwan, is getting ready to host the Summer Universiade of 2017. And to get everybody in the mood they’ve just turned some cars from their Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) subway system into realistic-looking sports venues.

The car floors have been turned into swimming pools, running tracks, basketball courts and soccer fields, and the commuters seem to be having a blast acting their dream victories on them.

For those unfamiliar with the event, the Universiade is the second-biggest international sporting event after the Olympics, and Taipei got the rights to host it by a landslide of votes back in 2011, beating the proposal of Brasilia, the capital of Brazil.

The revamped cars will be running on the Songshan-Xindian (Green) line, a central MRT route through August 19th to the 30th when the Summer Universiade will be taking place.
