Just when it appeared that all possible uses for them had been exhausted, @i_bri brings to attention Spark, a live interaction between humans and quadcopters. The video showcases a dance between a man and a series of lampshades, in a scene reminiscent of Mickey Mouse's brooms in Fantasia. Gizmodo has a great article here about it.

Cirque du Soleil, ETH Zurich, and Verity Studios have partnered to develop a short film featuring 10 quadcopters in a flying dance performance. The collaboration resulted in a unique, interactive choreography where humans and drones move in sync. Precise computer control allows for a large performance and movement vocabulary of the quadcopters and opens the door to many more applications in the future.
