The Olympics Opening Ceremony Drone Present Is Simply So Rattling Spectacular

The Olympics Opening Ceremony Drone Present Is Simply So Rattling Spectacular

Fireworks erupt as the Olympic Cauldron is lit during the Opening Ceremony of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games at PyeongChang Olympic Stadium on February 9, 2018 in Pyeongchang-gun, South Korea. Intel designed and developed custom animations for the opening ceremony and nightly victory ceremony performances, which include animations of different sports and various Olympic-related logos including the formation of the iconic Olympic rings.

The world record flight shown on TV was actually prerecorded for the event in December.

More than 1,200 Intel Shooting Star drones performed a light show at the Olympics opening ceremony.

The Winter Olympics rehearsal surpassed Intel's 2016 Guinness World Record of 500 drones flown simultaneously in Germany. Both records involved Intel's Shooting Star drones. Intel also adds that it will be putting on a live 300-drone show each evening of the Olympics for the day's medal ceremony.

The light show used Intel's Shooting Star drones, which were also featured in Lady Gaga's Super Bowl halftime show past year, and at Intel's CES keynote back in January.

The drones, which each weigh slightly more than a volleyball, are equipped with LED lights that can be programmed for animation and create more than 4 billion color combinations in the sky.

We've seen these Shooting Star drones from Intel in action several times before, and their latest outing is part of a deal between Intel and the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

Every drone fleet performance is controlled by just one pilot.
