The software giant Intel has revolutionized the sky light shows over the past few years.
For countless decades and generations, people relied on fireworks for their nighttime wonders. Now, with the quickly-evolving drone industry, that may soon be a thing of the past. Intel is currently behind magnificent drone displays all over the world. These drone shows serve as opening and closing displays for major events. Events like the Winter Olympics, Coachella, and even the recently concluded 4th of July celebrations. Now, instead of loud and smoke-filled fireworks, we get to see advanced Shooting Star drones.
Intel and the 50th Anniversary Record Breaker:
Intel’s most recent stunt involved creating a massive logo for TIME magazine. It involved 958 drones to create the iconic image. Now, it seems Intel is trying to out-do themselves.
In Folsom, California Intel is preparing to create its own logo out of drones using an estimated 1,500 Shooting Star drones. This would break Intel’s own record, while also celebrating the company’s 50th anniversary.
It seems this race to set the record for most drones is far from over. Companies worldwide have staked their claim for this illustrious title. Many succeeded, only for their record to be beaten weeks, if not days later. Surely, Intel beating their own record is a sign of dominance towards other drone companies worldwide.
Drones have a number of positives compared to fireworks. They are quieter, do not require explosions or shockwaves, and do not carry smoke. The drones also easily create images in the sky, whereas fireworks are harder to accomplish. Drones also last longer in the sky. Their patterns can last as long as the drones’ batteries are able. Fireworks only last a few seconds at a time. Another perk is that the drones can create their patterns within enclosed spaces, such as domes or buildings. This is a massive advantage compared to fireworks which need open air to really shine. This also means that for indoor drone shows, weather would not be an obstacle.
