The Intel drone team created the first-ever aerial TIME magazine masthead and red border for a special drone issue. The enormous iconic cover took almost 1,000 Intel® Shooting Star™ drones.
Intel was founded 50 years ago. Since then, we've been pushing the boundaries of what's possible. To celebrate our anniversary, we broke a world record by creating the biggest-ever choreographed drone light show with 2,018 Intel® Shooting Star™ Drones.
Experience our latest drone light shows, from the creation of the TIME cover to the choreographed display at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
Consumer Electronics Show (CES) attendees — along with everyone on the Las Vegas Strip — were treated to a choreographed display of lights and creative animations in the skies above the famous Fountains of Bellagio. Intel® Shooting Star™ drones and the fountains performed together to a rendition of the song “Stargazing” during CES.
From freezing cold temperatures to high gusts of wind, Intel engineers have their work cut out for them. But for every challenge, came a quick solution – from setting flight paths to running multiple tests in similar conditions and ensuring a spectacular show.
