Watch drones perform ‘ballet’ with 16,500 LEDs in front of Mount Fuji

Japan has some fairly strict drone regulations that bar private pilots from flying the devices in public parks, but that hasn’t stopped a fleet of the remote controlled vehicles from taking to the skies to perform a “ballet” accompanied by traditional Japanese shamisen music, set against the beautiful backdrop of Mount Fuji.

The performance was produced by Japanese company MicroAd, which used more than 20 of its LED-encrusted Sky Magic drones to fly in formation with the music, their 16,500 lights twinkling in the dusk gloom.
