Intel Introduces Light Show Drones

In early October 2016 Intel demonstrated its new “Shooting Star” drone. This drone has been designed specifically for multi-drone light shows. The drones weigh less than a pound and are capable of displaying more than 4 billion colors from the build in LED lights. This drone is designed specifically for entertainment and has a 20 minute flight time.

In the demonstration conducted near Munich, Germany,  500 drones were flown by a single pilot, setting a new Guinness Book of World Records for the most drones operated at one time by a single pilot.

Intel had set a record almost a year ago flying 100 drones in an exhibit. One can easily imagine light shows in the near future at many events that are drone based instead of fireworks.
