This flying robot light show is the coolest thing you will see all day

Stop whatever you're doing right now and watch this. At the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, KMel Robotics — who previously worked on the James Bond theme à la quadrotors — and Marshmallow Laser Feast unveiled this live performance of whirring robots performing a dazzling light show. Words cannot describe how rad this is — it's like War of the Worlds meets Space Invaders meets laser planetarium Vangelis meets a fire-and-brimstone tent revival sponsored by Skynet. Flabbergastingly fantastic.

Great. So now when the robots take over they won't even need to keep us around to entertain them.
