Fantastic. The music and light effects are almost beautiful enough to distract you from the menacing sound of a hundred whirring blades, and what they might do to you if you don't applaud.

Music by OneOhTrix Point Never, previously mentioned on Mefi. One of the most poppy tuneful things he's ever done.

Once the price of smart drones falls low enough, we can implement live action Space Invaders

Lovely! I like how even though it's as computer-choreographed as, say, any of the fancy fountains that "dance" to music, all of the imperfections due to the quadrotors compensating for instability gives it a much more live and performed feel. I know empathy for robots is a dangerous thing, but I can't help but feel appreciative of the effort all the little quadrotors went to to rehearse and put on that show.

Partly because the darkness made it impossible for me to gain any perspective on the stage, part of my brain kept defaulting, in an interesting way, to thinking of this as a bunch of dancers in black leotards running round a stage holding spotlights.

Why was the part edited out when they all focused on one guy in row C and he burst into flames?
