Watch a Light Show Performed by a Dance Team of Drones

These drones might overthrow humanity, but at least they'll entertain us first

Often, new advances in drone technology carry with them a sort of creepy and sinister vibe, probably because those new advances usually involve the drones becoming better equipped to spy on us and/or make off with our packages. But not so with these drones developed by Japanese tech company MicroAd, which exist only to enrich our lives through dance. The sensitive, artistic drones recently performed a choreographed dance routine in front of Mt. Fuji, backed by human musical accompaniment, and not only was the routine beautiful, but it was a nice gesture by the drones to allow humans to be involved.
