Intel breaks its own record with pre-recorded drone light show

Intel, the official drone partner of the XXIII Olympic Winter Games, broke its previous 500 drone record by simultaneously flying 1,218 drones at the Pyeongchang Opening Ceremony in South Korea. The Guinness World Record officially recorded Intel’s latest feat as the “most unmanned aerial vehicles airborne simultaneously.” The opening ceremony that was broadcast in the US was actually just a “secretly pre-recorded” event, according to the BBC. Freezing temperatures and strong winds were a problem, so Intel recorded the opening drone ceremony back in December 2017. Here is the pre-recorded event from YouTube:

Similar to how fireflies illuminate the dark, the swarm of Intel drones flew together to light up the sky with various shapes and figures. The 1,218 drones created a silhouette of a snowboarder, and they even organized to form the iconic Olympic rings, which represent the five competing continents. Here’s a behind the scenes video showcasing Intel’s latest record-breaking drone light show:

“The Olympics are a time when the sports and entertainment industries are buzzing with record-setting performances, so it was the perfect stage for Intel Shooting Star drones and our team to set their own kind of record,” said Intel drone light show team manager Natalie Cheung in a press release.
