Intel Shooting Star Drone Light Show



The Intel Shooting Star Drone Light Show

Intel Shooting Star Drone light show have just broken their previous record by flying 500 drones at the same time to create an impressive light show. The Shooting Star Drones show is monitored by just two people, so I guess technically that means that one person can fly 250 Intel Shooting Star Drones at the same time safely, although since its all software controlled I am sure one person can operate 500.

Intel tested 100 Shooting Stars with good results. To commemorate the official release of the drone they discharged 500 Shooting Star drones at once, and even spelled out their logo. To perform the light show they had to get a Part 107 Waiver from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), which has jurisdiction over drones.

The frame also features a some prop guards which is sensible given that you will have 500 of these flying near a large crowd of people to avoid any injuries!


At the bottom of each Shooting Star Drone is a bright RGBW (red, green, blue and white) LED light that can apparently produce over 4 billion color combinations! So ideal for a light show.
