AirStage brought its amazing orbs to The Expo 2017 show opening in Astana using a total of 19 autonomous flying AirOrbs that portrayed the sun and the planets in this high-tech show production.
“The extremely lightweight helium-based construction combined with AirStage patented soft safety propellers (made with a laser sintered figure-of-eight bendable frame covered with a flexible membrane), ensured that the AirOrbs was perfectly safe to be flown over the onstage performers with absolutely no safety issues.” – AirStage, 2017
