Intel's Winter Olympics Light Show Featured A Record-Breaking 1218 Drones

According to Wired, which earlier reported on the performance, 1,218 drones were flying at the same time-a record for any drone show.

This drone swarm kicked off a sequence of events where snowboarders wearing illuminated clothing as they carved up the mountain. It is noted that Intel simultaneously launched into the air 1218 controlled drones, which are lined up in the sky in the form of the Olympic rings and various other shapes.

The live show was meant to be a pared down version of the feat, with 300 drones flying at the end of the opening ceremony, but that too was scrapped. The number of drones was also said to set the Guinness World Record for "most unmanned aerial vehicles airborne simultaneously", That show, however, was pre-recorded and then televised on tape delay.

"Since fireworks in the seventh or eighth century, there has been no alternative option", Anil Nanduri, the vice president and general manager of Intel's drone division, told AdWeek.

The Intel Shooting Star drone is a quadcopter that weighs 330 grams, and is constructed with a soft frame made of flexible plastics and foam.

Using Intel's 3-D animator tools and simulation software, the company choreographed the flight patterns and coded the drones to display a fraction of their possible 4 billion color combinations.

The drones are lightweight and are the only ones of their kind, built specifically for outdoor light shows, according to Intel.

Following the PyeongChang 2018 Opening Ceremony, Intel ran a 30-second ad spot featuring the power of Intel Shooting Star drones and their unique entertainment possibilities.

"Because the event was organized by South Korea, I naturally thought the technology would have come from Korean tech firms". "I think Korea could have taken better advantage of the opportunity to promote its own, homegrown tech".

The International Olympic Committee said it was this footage that was used.
