More than 300 drones lit up the night sky in Seoul at the weekend offering a spectacular lightshow in support of healthcare workers and the public around the world during the coronavirus pandemic, reports futurism.com.
The drones were programmed to form different images above a city park close to the Han River that runs through the South Korean capital.The event which lasted for 10 minutes, began with messages reminding people of key precautionary measures including wearing masks, washing hands and keeping a two-metre distance from others.
The drones created images of a mask surrounded by coronavirus particles, quickly shuffling to form two hands and water droplets against the dark night sky. The show shifted to messages of gratitude for medical personnel in the frontlines of the pandemic as well as all South Koreans for their collective efforts. “THANKS TO YOU,” the drones wrote in the sky next to a heart shape, then formed a silhouette of the Korean peninsula with the message: “Cheer up, Republic of Korea.”
This government-organised event was not advertised in advance in consideration of social distancing rules, the transport ministry said.
