Hannover Fair Opening Ceremony

Six branded computer controlled AirOrbs flew out from the stage in the impressive opening ceremony for the Hannover Fair. The floating AirOrbs autonomously flew through a preprogrammed flight path whilst the interior lighting in each AirOrb was synchronised to the show. The AirOrbs were tracked with an optical camera system consisting of 10 cameras strategically placed around the flying area.
