Team In Flight
As athletes from 92 nations gathered at the PyeongChang 2018 Opening Ceremony, a stunning record breaking Intel® drone light show1 celebrating the spirit of the Olympic Games was broadcast to viewers worldwide.
Tradition calls for the Opening Ceremony to begin with the lighting of the torch – a symbol of unity and progress. That symbol extends to the sky, as over 1,200 Intel® Shooting Star™ drones2 help kick off the XXIII Olympic Winter Games.
From the Opening Ceremony to the final competition, Intel® drones are helping athletes and fans experience the future of the Olympic Games.
Attendees and athletes were treated to a nightly drone light show performance that celebrated the day’s events and winners. Intel® drones reappeared at the Closing Ceremony in the form of Soohorang, the mascot of the XXIII Olympic Winter Games.
With over 1,200 Intel® Shooting Star™ drones, we broke our 2016 record for the most Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) airborne simultaneously. Follow our journey to a Guinness World Records™ title.
