1,218 drones fly in unison at Olympics

Friday 16 Feb 2018

This was an interesting piece that popped up this week. The opening ceremony at the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang included a record-setting performance by machines to kick off the competition between people. Intel launched 1,218 drones in a choreographed dance displayed during the ceremony.

One computer coordinated the entire light show, which was not performed live at the opening ceremony but was pre-recorded in early December in case of bad weather and to forestall any possibility for a technical mishap. Check out the story – the technology being used – and the very impressive result on the night.
