Is this Quadrotor Light Show an Astonishing Artistic Feat or Grim Vision of the Future?
At this year’s Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors’ Showcase held at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, 16 quadrotor robots put on an unbelievable show. Using mirrors, LEDs, and some kind of sound manipulation system, the robots beeped and booped through a wigged out techno piece chillingly called “Meet Your Creator.” Art or ultimatum, you need to watch this. Video, after the break.
The show was put together by KMel Robotics along with Marshmallow Laser Feast. Though what technical wizardry went into the show isn’t completely clear, the creators do say that they used a Vicon tracking system, which allowed the robots to position themselves exactly. The result of all the jiggery pokery is pretty amazing.
