Drone display marks Dubai Mall's 10th anniversary
Drone display by Verity Studios uses 44 Lucie drones flying in formation
Dubai Mall is marking its 10th anniversary with a synchronised drone display.
The display, from Verity Studios, features 44 autonomous Lucie micro drones flying in formation with lighting effects and fireworks. The show, titled ‘Talisman', has been developed in collaboration with the new company from Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberté.
Raffaello D'Andrea, founder and CEO of Verity Studios, explained: "The Dubai Mall show is a beautiful display of moving art - and we have created a performance worthy of the 10th anniversary. It's been fantastic to work alongside Lune Rouge Entertainment, the new company created by Guy Laliberté, founder of Cirque du Soleil, and help the team there deliver their first-ever show in the Middle East.
"Verity Studios is constantly looking to push the boundaries of drone technology as a creative medium and Talisman is a compelling example of what can be achieved by incorporating drone technology with other, more traditional effects."
The light show utilises a swarm of Verity Studio's unique Lucie micro drones. Weighing just 50g, they can be safely flown above the heads of performers in virtually any indoor environment.
Video of the show can be seen here.
To date, the company has successfully overcome no-drone restrictions in airports, sports arenas and cruise ships, and its clients have completed more than 40,000 autonomous flights in more than 20 countries worldwide.
The show runs daily until 28th November in the Star Atrium.
