TECHNOLOGY

Designed and built from the ground up, our autonomous drones turn live events into unforgettable experiences.

Designed and built from the ground up, our autonomous drones turn live events into unforgettable experiences.

The Lucie® micro drone

The Lucie micro drone is our flagship offering and delivers vast creative freedom. Each autonomous Lucie micro drone is equipped with a RGBW light. When precisely choreographed, the Lucie micro drones form a cluster of flying lights, and together, their smooth, intricate motions work in harmony to produce captivating results. The versatility of the Lucie micro drones means you can achieve a variety of different effects. Fly only a few for an intimate scene with performers on stage. Or fill the air above the stage with a swarm of glittering fireflies for a more immersive experience.

TECHNOLOGY YOU CAN TRUST

Weighing only 50g (1.8oz), the Lucie micro drone can perform above artists without any safety concerns. Optimized for permanent installations and touring productions, they are ultra-safe, reliable, and easy to use. 

Technical specifications.

Weight: 50g (1.8oz)
Flight time: up to 3 minutes
Charging time: approximately 1 hour
Equipped with high–intensity, pre-programmable RGBW lights

Indoor positioning system.

The system consists of Kedge™ localization units that reliably define the boundaries of the flight space and allows for maximum creativity. This allows our drones to perform their choreography without cameras, carpets or other limitations. Robust and reliable, it has operated in a wide variety of venues and conditions, including on ice, in a desert and even next to flame throwers.

Lucie® charging station.

To house the Lucie micro drones before their performance, we provide charging station racks. Each rack hosts up to 40 Lucie micro drones and is an all-in-one charging, storage, and transportation solution.

Custom Projects

If you want to create something never seen before, we also work on bespoke, custom projects built to your specifications. From custom design, to engineering projects and processes, we’ll work with you to deliver something spectacular.

Costumes

Imagine a stage full of floating jellyfish, flying disco balls or swaying flowers. Our drone costume designers can create bespoke costumes that turn our Lucie® micro drones into flying scenery, props and even creatures. These ultra-light, flight-tested costumes can be used alone, or in tandem with a flying light show to add an extra dimension to your event.

Stage Flyer

The Stage Flyer drones were part of a custom project developed for Cirque du Soleil’s Broadway show Paramour. By design they carried lampshades and became dancing props alongside the performers. But this is just one example. The Stage Flyer drones can also carry payloads including cameras, mirrors or other stage effects, such as confetti, for more dramatic possibilities. For dependable safety, each Stage Flyer drone is designed with our failsafe technology. This means it can land safely even if a battery, motor, connector, propeller or sensor fails.

Swiss National Circus Knie

Featuring 32 Lucie micro drones performing in unison with acrobats under the enchanting roof of a big top provides feast for the senses.

What we did.

Switzerland’s national circus travels the country each year with its acrobats and menagerie. In the past, Circus Knie toured with elephants, a highlight of the show. But after deciding to retire its elephants to a peaceful life in the Knies Kinderzoo (children’s zoo), Circus Knie needed to replace them with something just as spectacular.

So, Circus Knie decided to add 32 of Lucie® micro drones to the mix. Dancing under the roof of the big-top circus tent, the drones perform alongside the family act, which includes Franco Knie Jr., his wife Linna and son Chris Rui. “This is a world premier for Swiss audiences,” said Franco Knie Jr. “Such an act is unique in a traveling circus.”

With this act, Knie Jr. was excited about combining technology and tradition. "At Circus Knie, we always make sure that we present modern elements in addition to tradition to offer a show for young and old," he said. “In search of components for the modern touch, we soon became aware of Verity Studios’ fantastic drone shows online. After first discussions, we quickly agreed that the drones should become one of the highlights of our 2018 program.”

Based on the feedback from audiences, it was the right decision. “We have received much positive feedback from visitors who appreciate the drone show, especially the interaction between light and music. We also often hear from visitors that they like it because it's something completely new and different in a circus show.”

A traveling circus is a challenging environment, but Knie Jr. said Verity was up to the challenge. “The experts at Verity Studios have responded very well and quickly to the special needs we face in the traveling circus business.”

This is the world’s first autonomous indoor drone swarm to tour with a circus.

RSA Conference

The Lucie™ micro drones opened the 2018 RSA Conference in a one-time performance at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

What we did.

Opening the 2018 RSA Conference at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, 32 Lucie® micro drones flew in harmony with 3 opera singers.

The micro drones were carefully choreographed to convey the changing emotions of the act. “When the drones first appeared, the song was light and melodic – and the drones were like fireflies and beautiful,” said Sandra Toms from the RSA Conference. “As the song changed to dark and moody, the drones changed to an ominous red color.”

RSA is the world’s leading cybersecurity conference, so the addition of cutting-edge drone technology ideally complemented the opening act. “When the drones came back, people in the back jumped up and used their phones to video tape what was happening,” said Toms. “It was unexpected, and the audience appreciated the surprise.”

Fantastic Journey

Verity Studios’ Lucie micro drones are featured as part of the on-board entertainment for Princess Cruises’ new ship, the Majestic Princess.

What we did.

Princess Cruises launched a new cruise ship in April 2017: the Majestic Princess. Onboard was a world first, a swarm of flying Lucie® micro drones dancing and interacting with a singer onstage. The show drones synchronize their movements and lights to the show’s music and stage effects, which include stage lighting, projections, and stage fog as part of the ship’s show: Fantastic Journey. 

Show director, Danny Teeson, said the choreographed drones were “visually stunning”. “The drones speak for themselves. To have a fantastic singer be elevated amongst choreographed drones – you don’t need anything else. It just transports you for that moment.” 

Cruise ships are challenging environments for many technology installations and this success speaks to the maturity of Verity’s indoor drone show system.

“We told Verity it would be a challenge, but they said ’we can do it’,” said Tracy Andronek, Production Operations Automation, Scenic and Drones.

The Lucie micro drones have now fascinated audiences in over 100 performances, with many more to come. “They were just mesmerized at the drones and you can see people pointing and saying ‘ahhhh’ during the number,” said Andronek.
This is the world’s first autonomous indoor drone swarm performance on a cruise ship.

Starlight Express

As part of the celebrations for the musical’s 30th year on stage, Starlight Express decided to use 28 Lucie® micro drones in the emotional pinnacle of the show: the Starlight Sequence. 

What we did.

The rock musical STARLIGHT EXPRESS tells the story of a child’s toy trains magically coming to life and racing against each other to be crowned the fastest engine in the world. Underdog Rusty ultimately wins the race and the heart of first-class coach Pearl when he is inspired by the legend of the Starlight Express.

Starlight Express press officer Frederika Gerwe said that though she’s seen lots of different types of lighting in shows, the Lucie micro drones were something special. “It was just magical. I’ve never seen something like the drones before. I had goose bumps everywhere.” 

“It was quite amazing, because the audience just did not really recognize drones,” said Starlight Express managing director Burkhard Koch. “It was just the magic of the whole scene, which was of course created by the drones flying around.” 

In such a quiet and emotional scene, the team at Starlight Express had some concerns about the noise 28 drones could make. However, they quickly realized this would not be an issue. “The most incredible thing was that we expected them to interfere with the sound, but it was not the case at all. It was really nice to integrate them in a musical way,” said Koch.

He was also impressed with the way the creative team, technicians and Verity worked together to create something unique and powerful. “We worked really as a team. We created some completely new things which have never been seen. Getting these classical lighting designs together with this new technology is fantastic,” said Koch.

What we did.

Heavy metal band Metallica has been traveling the world with their WorldWired tour since summer 2017. To kick off the arena tour, they decided to raise the stakes for their song “Moth into Flame” with a world first. As the music builds, 99 of Verity’s Lucie® micro drones emerge from below the stage to swarm around the band. This is the world’s first autonomous drone swarm performance in a major touring act. The drone show was produced in collaboration with TAIT Towers.  


“After the first night we successfully piloted the drones, James Hetfield walked over to a microphone and announced to the audience how “f—ing cool” the show had been because of Verity’s drones,” said Dan Braun, show director for the band Metallica. “It’s magnificent what they are doing, whether you see it live or on social media. The programmers of the drones do a great job.”

An ice rink in Royal Caribbean's Symphony of the Seas ship hosts 1977, an ice skating spectacular.

What we did

The show opens with an aerial ballet by 48 Lucie® micro drones whose lights change in sync to the music. The Lucie micro drones sparkle and flash on the ice before forming an arch. As a skater passes under the arch, the show begins.

“We were blown away by 1977, the ice show, which uses incredible technology to fly swarms of drones like tiny fireflies,” said the publication Cruise Passenger.

Cruise ships alone are challenging environments for many technology installations, and the ice rink adds another dimension to this. But the Verity indoor drone show system was up to the task.

"They're all aware each other, so they get out of each other's way when they get close. It's really clever stuff," said Nick Weir, VP of Entertainment at Royal Caribbean.

This is the world’s first autonomous indoor drone swarm performance on an ice rink.

Verity Studios drones shine in Starlight Express

Lucie® micro drones take center stage in the popular Andrew Lloyd Weber musical in Bochum, Germany. 

Verity Studios AG, the global leader in indoor drone technology, and Mehr! Entertainment, Germany’s largest theater group, announced last week that 28 Lucie micro drones are performing in STARLIGHT EXPRESS as part of the musical’s 30th year on stage.

The rock musical STARLIGHT EXPRESS tells the story of a child’s toy trains magically coming to life and racing against each other to be crowned the fastest engine in the world. Underdog Rusty ultimately wins the race and the heart of first-class coach Pearl when he is inspired by the legend of the Starlight Express.

Verity’s Lucie micro drones create a magical moment  as they circle and interact with Rusty in the emotional pinnacle of the show: the Starlight Sequence.

Managing Director Burkhard Koch said the micro drones played a key part in the reimagination of the musical for its 30th year on stage. “STARLIGHT EXPRESS is the longest running musical in the world. It even has the Guinness World Record for the most visitors to a musical in a single theater. To keep surprising people, we needed to create a spectacle, a “wow” moment. Verity’s sparkling drones bring some unexpected magic to the show.” 

The 28 Lucie micro drones perform their choreographies autonomously and are operated entirely by STARLIGHT EXPRESS staff. “It’s fantastic that such a sophisticated system is so easy for us to use,” said Koch. “We’ve used the system for 13 public performances now, and we haven’t had a single hiccup.” 

Verity’s drones have played starring roles in other musicals, notably as dancing lampshades on Broadway in Paramour by Cirque du Soleil. But this is the first time 28 Lucie micro drones have completely circled an actor on stage. “Immersive experiences are becoming increasingly popular as a form of artistic expression. But when we’re flying our drones so close to performers or audience members, safety is of utmost importance,” said Verity founder Raffaello D’Andrea. “This is why we have designed our indoor drone system with safety and reliability in mind. To date, our drones have completed over 30,000 autonomous flights, safely above people, in more than 20 countries. It’s a testament to the safety and reliability of our technology.” 

The new  STARLIGHT EXPRESS opened to a crowd of over 1600 on the 12th of June after six successful previews. The 2018 season will continue with 7 shows per week from Wednesday till Sunday.

Underwater UV Costumes

Underwater UV Costumes 

Drone costume designer, Léa Pereyre has recently been exploring the effect of UV costumes on our Lucie® micro drones. The costumes, though still in development, can produce the effect of underwater creatures.   

Drone costume designer Léa Pereyre was prompted to start exploring UV costumes when investigating a potential collaboration with a night club. “I tried to understand the elements typically found in a night club venue that I could use to enhance our drones’ performance. It ended up being nearly obvious that using UV light with UV reactive material is perfect for creating flying sculptures”.

The effect of UV paint and reactive materials is impactful, even from a distance. It opens the possibility of turning our very light and safe Lucie micro drones into floating characters, props and scenery.

Léa can see how this effect can offer many new opportunities. “First, UV light helps you to focus on a specific element. You can make select elements appear or disappear which helps create more magic around the costumes.”

Even without a costume, painting the Lucie guard in UV paint also creates a stunning effect. “You could also imagine a double use of our Lucie micro drones,” said Léa. “If the guard is covered by UV paint, the drones could perform their light show and then suddenly transform into flying sculptures thanks to a switch of ambient light.”

If you’re interested in exploring UV costumes for your event, get in contact. We’d be happy to talk you through the possibilities. We’ll also be demonstrating our UV costumes at the London Design Festival in September this year. Keep in touch to learn more about where you can see our costumes in action by signing up to our newsletter.

Drone light shows taking entertainment to new heights

Want to add some extra wow-factor to a live event? Drone shows are transforming the landscape and leaving audiences blown away. Leading provider Verity Studios discusses its soaring appeal.

If you’re looking to create something truly deserving of the words ‘wow’ and ‘factor’ for your next live event, you might want to consider the possibilities provided by drones.

The market for drones (outside of a military setting) for personal and commercial use has exploded in recent years with sales forecasts predicting sales of nearly 30 million units by 2021.

One of the fastest growth areas is in the commercial space (170,000 sales in 2017, up from 110,000 in 2016*) and the use of drones for LED ‘drone shows’ has become big business and widely adopted in the entertainment industry.

Recent high profile examples include the 2018 Winter Olympics opening ceremony in PyeongChang, at which Intel performed a choreographed light display using 1,218 drones to create various animations, including the Olympic rings.

Drones were also used to promote the release of Wonder Woman on DVD, lighting up the LA sky with various related imagery associates with the film. But it’s not just large open outdoor spaces where drone shows are taking place, with musicians, theatre productions and even airports using drones to wow visitors with a barely believable performance more akin to special FX in a science fiction movie than reality.

Verity Studios adds 99 micro drones to “Moth Into Flame”

Verity Studios adds 99 micro drones to “Moth Into Flame” on Metallica’s WorldWired Tour.

Working in close collaboration with TAIT, who custom built the in-the-round stage design for Metallica’s WorldWired Tour, Verity Studios provided the touring industry’s first autonomous indoor drone swarm, with 99 micro drones dancing like fireflies for the song, “Moth Into Flame.” The set and stage design, designed by the show’s director, Dan Braun, features an immersive concert experience with a 44' x 44' square main-stage equipped with several prop lifts located in the center of the arena.


James Hetfield, lead singer and co-founder of Metallica, has wanted to use drones in the show for several years, but as Braun points out, “I used to say they weren’t safe, so we sort of got away from the idea, but kept it on the back burner. Then I spoke with Adam Davis at TAIT, and he told us about their relationship with Verity and about the potential possibilities, and that’s how we got into using drones on this tour. As the show’s designer and director, I thought we should put them in ‘Moth Into Flame,’ as it’s been a very successful song for the band for a long time. And after the first night of the tour in Copenhagen, James said the drones were great, so we were happy, and we always want to keep the band happy.”

Frequently asked questions

Do you provide drone shows for outdoor venues?

Our Lucie micro drones only weigh 50g (1.8oz), which makes them very safe when flying near people, but due to their light weight, they are unsuitable for outdoor use. Generally,we do not operate outdoors, except in areas very well protected from wind and weather. 

How long do the drones fly? What is the charging time? 

Each of our Lucie micro drones take approximately one hour to charge and can fly for up to 3 minutes. For a longer effect, you can stagger the micro drones’ take-off and landing.

How many drones can you fly together?

Our technology supports an unlimited number of autonomous drones to fly simultaneously. The optimum number of drones for your project is determined by the available space and the creative concept.   

Do you fly above audiences?

Because our Lucie micro drones only weigh 50g (1.8oz), they are very safe when flying near or above people.In most cases we fly above the stage area and performers on stage. In one-time events we have performed above the audience as well. 

How can I get your drones at my event?

Depending on your requirements we will typically need a 4 to 12-week lead-time. We'll develop a creative concept for the drone show choreography and will produce a first 3D animation for your review. We'll also start assembling the equipment you'll need.
Once we have shipped the equipment, Verity will come on site for the installation, or we’ll train your staff to do the installation themselves.  
If you’re doing a one-time event, our staff will then remain on-site to operate the drone show.  
If you’re planning a permanent installation, we will train your staff to operate the drone show and do regular drone maintenance. 

How much maintenance does the system need? 

Our Lucie micro drones are equipped with sensors to monitor their status and will tell you when they require maintenance. We will train the local crew to perform maintenance on the drones. 

How much weight can your drones carry?

Our Lucie micro drones weigh 50g (1.8oz) and are not designed to carry loads. However, we have developed ultra-light weight costumes, which can be attached to the drones, if desired. 

How can I customize the drones for my project?

We can accommodate several types of customization. For example, we can offer client-specific, custom-made costumes. This will be a customized creative and technical project with lead times between 4 and 8 months. We also offer costume design services for the Lucie micro drones, and other technical customization services. These services will incur additional costs and longer lead times. For more information, please get in touch with our sales team. 

What flight space can you cover?

We’ve covered indoor event spaces up to small sporting arena size. There is no upper size limit.

My venue has a no-drone policy, will this be a problem?

We’ve had approval to fly in many different venues, in more than 20 countries worldwide. Because our Lucie micro drones are so light and safe, we’ve also been approved to fly in venues with no-drone policies like Changi Airport in Singapore. We will support you in obtaining approval in your venue if required.
