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

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

Yeah, re-watching it, it's clear that the GA is not doing (or barely doing) all the wave effects.
