  • The Future of Fireworks

    This is an amazing feat. 100 Drones are in the air simultaneously, choreographed seamlessly with a light show synchronized with a live orchestra on the ground playing Beethoven's 9th Symphony.

    Say what?!

    Here's my prediction. This will be the future of fireworks. 

    From the original Guinness World Records announcement

    A spectacular display of drone technology by Intel Corporation (USA), involving 100 small aircrafts being launched skywards in formation, has earned a new world record title for the Most Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) airborne simultaneously. Read the full story:

    Controlled on the ground by a crew using PCs with Intel software, the mass of drones lit up the night sky in sync to a live performance of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony and executed a stunning light show resembling a fireworks display.

    “Drone 100” took place at Flugplatz Ahrenlohe, Tornesch, Germany, in November 2015. The record was set in collaboration with Ars Electronica Futurelab to push the limits of the UAV industry and to show what UAVs can be used for.

    Just amazing. Enormous credit goes out to the engineers at Intel and the spectacular talent at Ars Electronica Futurelab.
