Winter Olympics opening ceremony sees Intel use record 1218 drones

Winter Olympics 2018 PyeongChang Day 1 live updates schedule highlights video

"The Olympics are a time when the sports and entertainment industries are buzzing with record-setting performances, so it was the flawless stage for Intel Shooting Star drones and our team to set their own kind of record", said Natalie Cheung, general manager of Intel's drone light show team.

"As it turns out, bring 1,218 of those drones into harmony doesn't present much more of a logistical challenge than 300, thanks to how the Shooting Star platform works". Images of the December rehearsal show the "Shooting Star" drones lighting up the sky with Olympic rings, a snowboarder and a dove.

"And while more drones does provide a broader canvas, it perhaps more importantly affords a better sense of depth". Intel also adds that it will be putting on a live 300-drone show each evening of the Olympics for the day's medal ceremony.

The performance requires three employees to monitor the drones, and Olympic volunteers to help set them up.

Intel is among the corporate sponsors for the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang that are taking the opportunity to promote its products and services before the global audience.

An army of high-flying drones expected to light up the sky at the opening ceremony of the Olympics was grounded.

Each of Intel's foam and plastic drones is equipped with LED lights that can create more than 4 billion color combos.

The feat was a Guinness World Record for drones used in a performance.

The 2018 Winter Olympics kicked-off in Pyeongchang, South Korea yesterday, and like any Olympics event, it began with a big, flashy opening ceremony.

Intel's drones can fly for around 20 minutes and of course, exterior factors, such as crosswinds and low temperatures can affect the overall flight time. That didn't keep the television network from highlighting the moment. The drones take off separately and are being controlled by one single computer.
