Video: Lighted drones dance in the sky by Mt. Fuji

Check out this video of an innovative and beautiful musical outdoor show with LED lighted drones dancing in the air with Mt. Fuji in the background (link via Aleta Jackson on Twitter):

From the caption:

Beautiful backdrop of the world heritage site Mt. Fuji was used to stage the first Live performance using MIDI controlled LED flying machines, accompanied by Shamisens, the Japanese traditional guitars.

This was done so by utilising more than 20 units of these flying machines, flight swarming formations, music, and 16,500 LED lights to combine into a single audio visual extravaganza. Furthermore, we are able to control the flying machines, visual and audio aspects concurrently, using the DMX512.
