Do you remember Space Invaders?

AR.Drones or Space Invaders?

Does this AR.Drone light show remind you of anything?

As a child of the 1980s I couldn’t help but think of Space Invaders when I saw the above, which appeared as a still image in my YouTube feed.

The video was recorded at the Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors’ Showcase 2012 and features a troupe of 16 quadrocoptors, performing to light and music. As the video had been ‘liked’ by the official Parrot channel, I assumed they were going to be AR.Drones but alas, they are actually a custom design by KMel Robotics. Sadly, there isn’t a great deal of information on their website but I thought I would include the link –  – for those that want to check it out anyway.

As the video progresses it resembles Space Invaders less and less but it is, in any case, an impressive performance. Feel free to check it out, below:
