We're in charge of the motion and light control system for the massive flying structures that have been touring since 2016 as part of the "Ghibli Expo".
In addition to the control system for vertical movement of the flying structure itself, we also built custom-made devices to smoothly control the propellers and lighting built into the body of the ship. The motor driving method is dynamically changed between sequences to acquire a wide variety of motor noise, as a part of creating scenes of quiet floating, or powerful elevations.
