Love filled the skies in Shanghai this February, thanks to an unconventional drone marriage proposal.
The stunning visuals took place at the Bund, a waterfront in China. Footage showed the illuminated drones form the shape of a women’s hand in the sky. The drones then made an engagement ring and the hand slipped its finger in right in. Finally, the drones created the phrase “Marry me” in pink and white letters.
Drones are becoming a popular tool for events in Shanghai. The city created its pre-recorded New Year’s Eve show in 2020 entirely with drones instead of fireworks. The illuminated display used 2,000 drones to make formations even more elaborate than typical pyrotechnics like Chinese characters, running men, dragons and planets.
Shanghai opted for the drones as a low-pollution alternative to fireworks for its annual celebration.
“Drone light shows differ from fireworks displays because drones are reusable, and do not produce chemical and noise pollution,” Forbes stated.
The magazine also noted that despite being a great option, there are very few companies that have the technical skills, training and permits to put on drone shows. So they’re pretty special.
It’s unclear when drone shows will come to the U.S. but Intel is developing the technology to make it a possibility in the near future.
