Popular Mechanics magazine invited its partners to a party to celebrate the magazines 15 years in Russia and 115 years in print around the world. The festivities took place on October 26 at Stanislavsky Electrotheatre with support from automobile company Subaru.

Guests arrived through special lounge area themed to the film Blade Runner 2049, and the evening began with a mini-drone show. Maximum morning radio show host DJ Chaka provided the soundtrack to a performance of quad-copters that navigated past a series of obstacles placed throughout the theatre.
