Drones can do all sorts of things — take great videos, race or even smuggle meth — but how good are they at entertainment? We’ll likely find out this year during the world’s first drone entertainment show in Amsterdam.
Air 2015, as the show’s called, is slated to happen in the Amsterdam Arena sometime this year, but other details, including the exact date, are scarce. Still, the official trailer, posted on YouTube last week, promises ton of adrenaline-infused fun.
“In this high energy and explosive show, drones will take centre stage to bring a collaboration and fusion of music, video, projections and special effects. AIR allows you to experience a variety of ballet and battles, races and lasers, circus, illusions and most of all magic from hundreds of drones,” says a statement on the event’s website.
Though the event is dubbed as the world’s first “drone entertainment show,” we’ve definitely seen similar events, albeit on a smaller scale. At CES 2015 there was a number of drone-related shows and stunts, though most flying devices were caged in relatively small spaces.
