The Intel drone light show technology is all set to change the way we used to witness light shows in sky in past. A glimpse of the same was seen at the opening and closing ceremony of the Olympic Winter Games that were held in PyeongChang this year. Intel was able to register a world record here for the opening ceremony flight, performing in sync with the Fountains of Bellagio, and lighting up the Las Vegas Strip. It also thrilled the crowds the Coachella Music Valley and Arts Festival with the same. This new form of light show is a step ahead from the traditional light shows that were a source of pollution and unwanted trash. These also led to safety concern as unsafe usage of fireworks could easily injure the user in several ways.
Courtesy to the latest technology, one can now experience the same splendor across the sky without having to worry about all such issues. You can think of these drone light shows as the safer, green, and reusable version of fireworks. The idea of this concept came up a few years back when Brian Krzanich, the Intel CEO, enquired his team if they could draw Intel’s logo above the headquarters using drone. It is then the team tested the technology to see if 100 drones could be controlled by one pilot and the rest is history. They worked quite in detail to understand the working of a show which included every aspect right from airspace regulations to safety protocols and logistics. What they discovered led to foundation of a sustainable business model.
For now, sky is the canvas of Intel team that is eager to create new experiences for their viewers. Their vision expands from Intel branding to magnificent light shows and other important things.
