Cirque du ciel?

Cirque du Soleil, world famous for their stunning and innovative performances, this time looks to the sky (ciel) for new ideas. In this case, their inspiration is derived from the technology of UAVs. The team at Cirque got together with ETH Zurich and Verity Studios to develop a short film featuring 10 quadcopters. The whimsical flying dance performance is pure magic. The unique, interactive choreography syncing the movements of man and machine is something you have to see to believe. Clearly, there’s no limit in how UAV technology can be harnessed in the future. It makes you wonder where it will pop up next?
