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.
