Intel’s drones, known as the Shooting Stars mesmerized the world with their appearance at the Winter Olympic Games of 2018. The foot-long drones, made up of foam and plastic were equipped with LED lights. They decorated the night sky of PyeongChang, South Korea on 9th February to mark the beginning of the Games. The world watched in awe as the Shooting Star drones formed stunning visuals.
Intel’s drone team reached the Winter Olympic Games which were being held in PyeongChang, South Korea. Sub-zero conditions and rattling winds posed as a great challenge not only to the competing athletes but to Intel’s Shooting Star drones as well. It was a crucial task to keep 1,200 drones co-ordinated in mid-air, in the harsh weather conditions. Intel’s drone team broke the World Record for the most number of drones flown simultaneously by decorating the sky at the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games of 2018. After the successful flight of Intel’s Shooting Stars, the drones flew once again in July 2018 to break the Guinness World Record.
Here are some of the shots from the Winter Games opening ceremony:
