The Olympics Drone Game is Strong
In case you missed the opening ceremony of the Olympics last week (and not many of us did with 28.3 million viewers tuning in) there was an outstanding light display featuring drones.
From The Engineer: “A light show put on by a coordinated swarm of 1218 Intel Shooting Star drones formed an animated display, setting a Guinness world record for “the most unmanned aerial vehicles airborne simultaneously”. The swarm will also be in action throughout the games during medal ceremonies, which will include animations of the appropriate sports and Olympic-related logos including the familiar linked rings.”
This means we can look forward to more awe-inspiring moments brought to us by the beautiful light displays of the Olympic drones.
