Swarms Of Drones Paint 3D Light Sculptures Against The Night Sky

It seems that drones are everywhere these days from taking sky high selfies, breathtaking photographs and even capturing political unrest around the world.

But they've yet to be used quite like this, Austrian organization Ars Electronica Futurelab based in Linz armed their custom quadcopters with LED lights, programming them to fly in unison to draw 3D sculptures in the night sky.

They form and re-form to sculpt teapots, hearts and all manner of enchanting constellation-like patterns in the darkness. Akin to a small firework display without the noise or obvious dangers.

From far away, you could be forgiven into thinking these strange glowing orbs were potential UFOs, graceful floating high above the city entertaining and astounding all those who witness them.
