TOKYO, July 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Stage Technologist Group mplusplus Co., Ltd. (Head Office: Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo / President and CEO, Representative Director: Minoru Fujimoto) has developed a “WAVING LED RIBBON” equipped with unique wireless synchronization functions and an LED infinite rotation mechanism. This product was used for the first time in a zero-audience performance “Opening For The Brighter Future” – released on Friday, July 24th, 2020 – to cheer up the world.


“WAVING LED RIBBON” is a next-generation sports entertainment item that enables organic rippling LED light to draw lines in the air. Throwing the LEDs into the air and rotating them without breaking it was considered difficult from the perspective of durability and operability. However, in addition to the unique hardware and software that enables wireless synchronization of multiple devices, the development of a unique mechanism that allows the connection part to rotate infinitely has made possible the fantastic performance even making it look like computer graphics. mplusplus plan to expand the range of use in various stage productions including sporting and music events.

  • Opening For The Brighter Future

Since last year, the company has continued the development of the “WAVING LED RIBBON” in preparation for various upcoming international festivals in Japan. However, due to the spread of the new coronavirus, postponement and cancellation of events were unavoidable. In the absence of clients and no events to unveil our new product, the company believed that times like this is when entertainment is needed, and mplusplus carried out a performance in an empty indoor ballpark at Komazawa Olympic Park. This performance is performed by the Color Guard Performance Team “Via Colorguard”, which also suspended its activities due to the coronavirus. mplusplus aimed for a performance where the trajectory of the LED, condensed with Japanese technology and delicate expressions, shines a bright light on our future. The company strongly hope that people all over the world will enthuse to sports and entertainment again soon. Better days will return.
