TIME uses 958 Intel drones to create iconic magazine cover




The cover of TIME Magazine’s upcoming June 11 issue was shot featuring 958 Intel Shooting Star drones, which is a first of a kind for the 95-year-old company. Besides Intel, the American weekly news magazine partnered with Astraeus Aerial Cinema Systems and L.A. Drones to photograph the light show-like drone formation with a cinema-grade drone. A behind the scenes video was also created by TIME, and it can be seen here:

When 958 Intel drones converged in Folsom, California, TIME’s iconic logo and red border was created midair. Once the drones were correctly positioned, a much larger commercial drone was used to photograph the cover for a special report called The Drone Age.

What exact drone did TIME use?

Intel’s 330-gram Shooting Star drone is designed with built-in LED lights that can create over 4 billion color combinations when flying in-sync with other drones. Even though Shooting Star drones have been used in events like the Winter Olympics, the Intel drone team still had to consider factors such as wind and limited space.

Intel’s Shooting Star drones were even used to promote the Blu-ray release of Wonder Woman.
