The effects on the light sticks are so cool, I think I've never noticed this before in other light sticks. How do they work? Are they connected through the venue or is it an app? Or is it both?

there's a few groups that use them now! it's cool. they're all bluetooth syched with an app that then lets the lighting directors program them. eats batteries like a mofo but it looks really cool.

here's another example:

So are they connected to a phone and then they have receptors on the stadium to locate the position? Or are they connected to each other and then the app creates a map of their relative position? I'm trying to figure out how they are getting the position of the light sticks to do the effects.

From what I remember when you connect the app at the show (they have people who help you at most venues if you need it before the show) you also input your seat number/scan your ticket. I assume they use a bluetooth hotlink receiver at the venue to make sure the signal is as strong as possible but then it's someone's job to prep the floor plan at each venue to match the lighting design. Kind of like a lightbright with each seat being a point.

I think some venues with GA its just a general mood lighting/area mapping based on what your section is instead of specific movements like the NCT and EXO shows.

there was an explanation video to connect it for SM lightsticks back when Exo released theirs

Ah, that's a much simpler solution, I didn't even think of that. I was wondering what kind of money they had invested in the technology to preciesly locate each one of the light sticks lmao
vintage_boom 29th-Jan-2019 07:06 pm (UTC)
lol yea it would be so hard doing it any other way I think they based them off the coldplay bracelets they were using from an older tour. makes the shows look so cool! I think if you re-watch the NCT vid you can see the difference between the GA standing closest to the stage and seated, its so much more intricate where they have the exact seat number vs general area
dantethetaco 29th-Jan-2019 07:26 pm (UTC)
Yeah, re-watching it, it's clear that the GA is not doing (or barely doing) all the wave effects.

Why what happened to Haechan?
vintage_boom 30th-Jan-2019 12:47 am (UTC)
he fractured his leg at the end of last year. has had to sit out all of award season and this con and the japanese tour.

i did wake up at unholy hours at the weeked to see this show by questionable periscope links and i regret nothing. it looked so fun. the playgroud thing? amazing. i loved it. even if i hate this song it sounded great here, it is great for a show tbh
all the fanaccs said the show was super fun, the playlist was great, all their families were there... i bet they're happy. i hope they do.
yunho on the first day leading the fanchats made my whole month.

did you see all the new trainees they revealed at the con?! there's another 5 potentially incoming. I hope they're the new dreamies.
ohbubbajoan 30th-Jan-2019 01:47 am (UTC)
I did!!!

i think it was 6 treinees tho. i REALLY want them to be the new dreamies they all seem they could be jisung/chenle age. did you see the close up photo of two of them?
vintage_boom 30th-Jan-2019 02:26 am (UTC)
ah I wasn't sure how many there were! I saw a couple close up shots. Looks like their hair means they're ready to be introduced as SMRookies. If they are going to be added to Dream I wonder if they'll be added at the end of next year when the current members graduate or if they'll get added before as a mix in.

the idea of Leader Chenle or Leader Jisung is killing me lol
ohbubbajoan 30th-Jan-2019 02:48 am (UTC)
imagining chensung as leaders makes my world brighter tbh. the absloute mess. jisung would BOLT lmao
vintage_boom 30th-Jan-2019 02:58 am (UTC)
Jisung after doing the age math and realizing what's about to happen

He's hiding under Jaemin's bed as we speak
