1,218 drones fly in unison at Olympics

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.
