Usually when we features drones (or quadchopters, or UAVs) we share on how they invade privacy, crash on private property or cause violent misunderstandings. But today we stumbled upon this wonderful piece by ETH Zurich of Cirque du Soleil, that would not have been possible if it weren’t for drones. So with my sincere apology, here is a tribute to how wonderful drones can be.
The collaboration resulted in a unique, interactive choreography where humans and drones move in sync. Precise computer control allows for a large performance and movement vocabulary of the quadcopters and opens the door to many more applications in the future
Both the motivation and some insight on how this performance was created can be seen in this quick BTS:
