There was mechanical engineering involved in this! It took me a while to figure it out, but it looks like those are hoverboards, attached to what appear to be custom-built rolling quad stands — genius!
The hardest part about this whole thing—other than welding a field frame, apparently—would be the drone footage used to shoot the video.
What we like about it
I love everything about this video. For starters, they have masks on. Clearly a safe, socially-distant method of getting performers together in the same place.
Wind players? Your mileage may vary.
But this is a perfect example of how it doesn’t have to be marching band anymore. It’s musical entertainment, so why not invest in some hoverboards??
