Cool Stadium Tech

The Arts


I’m not a huge fan of Coldplay; while some of the ballads are pleasant, their stadium-rock ‘Wave-your-hands-and-go-Wooo-ooo’ songs seem generic to the point of parody – but they know how to give a good show.

Seeing them at the Emirates Stadium last night I particularly liked this bit of tech, wristbands in different colours presumably SMS-activated to pulse in time with the music, creating a sea of light that the Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama probably go crazy for, as it looked like a giant version of her recent gallery installation.

    That is just so much fun! My husband’s comment is that everyone is just being sprayed with radiation. It’s the second of June, sprinkling restrictions have gone into effect and we have just had a rain shower complete with thunder, all of it so noisy you could hardly hear over it. I suppose he’s entitled to be a little glum.
