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




Intel Shooting Stars

Custom made quadcopters called Shooting Stars were used to set the world record. These 330-gram drones are primarily made out of plastic and foam, which is similar to how much a volleyball weighs. The built-in LED lights can create more than 4 billion color combinations in the sky. Each drone has an average flight time rated at five to eight minutes. The drones are equipped with GPS, but it is the one-man operable software that controls the synchronized flight movements.


Intel’s other drone light shows

In September 2017, Shooting Star drones were used to promote the Wonder Woman Blu-ray release. Intel also recently set a world record at CES 2018 for “the most UAVs airborne simultaneously from a single computer indoors” with 110 of their newer Shooting Star Mini drones.



Drones are the future of live entertainment

Shooting Star drones have started to shape how events will display live entertainment. Not only are they safe, but drone swarms are programmable; they can fly in swarms and accurately recreate almost any shape. Ever since they started, Intel has rapidly progressed with how many drones they can simultaneously control. At this rate, it’ll only be a matter of time before drone light shows become as regular as firework displays.
