Intel just smashed another record with latest drone show
Intel has beaten its own record with a show featuring 2,018 Intel Shooting Star drones to celebrate its 50th anniversary. The LED equipped drones lit up the sky above the technology company’s Folsom, California facility.
Inspection and monitoring. Aerial video broadcasts. Deliveries. Reconnaissance. The applications for drones are vast, but none as entertaining as the Intel shows we’ve seen from the Winter Olympics in Korea, to the first time the technology giant hit 500 aerial drones.
The latest show has smashed the Guinness World Record for the most unmanned aerial vehicles airborne simultaneously… all controlled by one pilot.
“Several years ago, we had an idea of flying drones forming the Intel logo over our corporate headquarters, and here we are doing just that. It really speaks to the innovative spirit that Intel was founded on 50 years ago,” explained Anil Nanduri, vice president and general manager, Intel Drone Group.
