With technology becoming part of our lives, it is no surprise that eventually it would begin creeping its way into art as well, and that’s what a dance troupe in Japan, Eleven Play, has done by choreographing a dance that includes the use of quadcopter drones. Yes, you read that right, drones now have use outside of war (and pizza deliveries) and can be used in a more artistic kind of way now.

The dance admittedly feels rather abstract and we’re not sure what we’re supposed to takeaway from it all, but since art is meant to be subjective, we guess you can take it to mean anything you want. However despite it being a little bit confusing, it is admittedly quite a sight to behold. After all choreographic with humans can be a challenge, so imagine how much harder it must be to incorporate the flying of drones and maintaining them in the right dance pattern too!

In any case if you have a few minutes to spare and you’d like to see how quadcopters can be used in an artsy kind of way, check out the video above to check it out in action. In the meantime we should note that putting on performances with robots isn’t exactly new. In fact it was only recently that video surfaced that showed Sir Paul McCartney jamming on stage with a robot, plus we doubt this will be last time we3 see robots being brought on stage either. So, what do you guys make of it?
