Intel Testing 500 Drones Single Piloted To Display Fireworks Replica

Intel just got a good trick idea with drones. Hundreds or even thousands of such flying machines in the sky is learned to be replicating the thrill that people gets from watching fireworks display.


Probably dubbed as Shooting Star drones, the tiny flying objects are equipped with lights to offer spectacular show in the night sky.

Intel said to be offering a whole fleet of such Shooting Star drones to entertainment companies, theme parks, and cities.

Not to forget what the company did last year with the drones. About 100 of the devices were made to fly in such formation that produced patterns, in fact the Intel logo.

Lately Intel says to be synchronizing 500 drones for the display of more ambitious and complex patterns, probably a better logo of the company.

Intel is currently testing the new fleet of synchronized drones in Germany.

The company said they have received required clearance from US Federal Aviation Administration to fly in sky the drones as a fleet with a single pilot.

Couple of days ago the company showcased at a drone expo in Las Vegas its first Intel-branded commercial drone named as Falcon 8+.

The tech giant is finding drones as a fast-expanding marketplace and so has been moving ahead to compete with products under its own brand.
