This is a verity lucie drone.
If you've been to a Drake or a Metallica show recently you've probably seen one of these flying in the air.
At Drakes concert in Madison Square Garden I noticed a twinkle in the air and actually there were about 88 of them as these drones started flying around and following him.
These drones are from Verity Studios, an indoor drone system company based in Switzerland.
Drones are becoming a bigger part of entertainment, seen in the Super Bowl or the Olympics but it's a lot of hard work putting these aerial routines together.
It's especially harder when you don't have open skies which is why Verity Studios specializes in.
Specifically for indoor events like concerts or plays.
With indoor drone shows, your space is much more limited.
Verity Studios is trying to fix this by using something they call a kedge localization unit.
Basically a small satellite indoors that maps out a room as if it were a GPS.
And it sends these coordinates to all the drones in the room.
And it only really needs four buttons to operate, play pause, Abort, soft stop, and arm.
Right now these drone shows are being used for massive specticles, but the hope is that once the technology becomes more assessable, you'd even be able to set them up at a wedding or a birthday party.
While you're not seeing many of these drones in person now you could probably expect to see more of them in the future.
