Sky Magic at Mt.Fuji

This would have been a wonderful video even without the dancing drones. The Oyamakai ensemble of Shamisen players perform a rocking tune at sundown at the base of Mt. Fuji. The featured dancers are 20 synchronized drones, each in their little cages outfitted with a total of 16,600 LEDs. They fly in choreographed formations, swinging their lights in synchrony. You’ll want to see this in full-screen mode.

Sky Magic is the work of creative director Tsuyoshi Takashiro for the tech company MicroAd, Inc. Read all about it at Spoon & Tamago.
