Cygames celebrated the anniversary of a video game with a spectacular flight of 1500 drones that formed an XXL QR Code in the sky over Shanghai: watch the video.
QR Codes – Quick Response Codes, a kind of barcode containing information that can be unlocked by framing the symbol with a smartphone – are nothing new. We’re used to seeing them on election posters, hotel brochures, advertising flyers and even menus at the local pizzeria. There is one place, however, where we are not used to seeing them at all: the sky. A few days ago, a giant QR code appeared in the sky, complete with a link to a website. The extraordinary event took place in Shanghai, China. The video game company Cygames celebrated the anniversary of one of its titles that is very popular in the East (the game ‘Princess Connect! Re: Dive’) with a spectacular flight of 1500 drones. The remotely controlled drones entertained the audience with spectacular aerobatics over the rooftops of Shanghai. At the end of the performance, the drones lined up to the millimetre to form a giant QR code in the sky over the Asian metropolis.
