Intel Drone Display Fills Sky Over Folsom, CA

Robots – This aerial display performed by Intel actually took place last July 15. It was uploaded to YouTube later that month. The video was captured and published by The Sacramento Bee. The synopsis per the YouTube post:

Intel dazzled its Folsom audience on July 15, 2018 with a spectacular light show designed to feature 1,500 drones, in an effort to outdo its previous world record of 1,218 Intel Shooting Star drones. The performance displayed multicolored choreography including bright, fireworks-like orbs. A single pilot mans the entire fleet of light-emitting remotely controlled machines.

This display was designed around 1500 of their Intel Shooting Star drones in an attempt to set a new record. Their prior record was 1218 drones. It was also intended to celebrate¬†Intel’s 50th anniversary on July 18, 2018.

I think that we will see more and more aerial light shows produced by drones in the future. Personally, I would rather see this kind of performance instead of traditional fireworks.
