    Daft needs this for their next tour....

    Can you imagine this size backdrop for their tour??
    A screen this size displaying all the trippy visuals and the Technologic lyrics and F*CK F*CK F*CK


    A 20,000 square foot wall of computer-controlled LEDs in Beijing, the largest of its kind ever built.

    The wall manages to power itself completely using only the sun. The GreenPix Zero Energy Media Wall, designed by Simon Giostra & Partners and Arup, uses thousands of solar capture cells attached to each of its glass panels to charge up during the day and then release light shows at night. It's the first time perforated photovoltaics laminated in glass have ever been used in a building in China. The wall is a combination of three textured panels in low-, medium-, and high-transparency glass, employed together to create a "continuous carpet" of flowing design that's actually roughly 7 feet deep. The wall will showcase low-resolution LED imagery.


    But of course, even at low-res, it would still be amazing visual.
    I wonder if a giant pyramid would be used to compliment the backdrop, or just for the hell of it keep it the same size (or obviously a new stage theme).

    Hm. I want to see them perform with that behind them, since I haven't seen the pyramid tour.
    But it would be fantastic if they came up with a new and more mind-blowing theme on their next tour...
    Guillotines on stage and they dress up like Louis XIV for example. lulz jk

    Sounds more mind- chopping than mind-blowing.

    If they ever decide to tour that is, and it's a real shame that they cancelled the Demon Days tour due to the technology's expenses/instability, I think its name was Ghost Technology or something like that.

    The only problem is that DP tend to perform at night, so where would the power come from?
    They can't just leave the set out there all day to charge up.

    They won't be able to make shows in closed spaces, also.

    Well, yeah. Ideally, a screen that size would be cool without being solar powered at night time (imagine the electric costs and the blindness that would occur!!).

    But yeah...
