Intel Corporation (INTC) seeks to expand the boundaries of technology to provide the most amazing experience possible. Intel designs manufactures, and sells integrated digital technology globally.
The 1,218 Intel Shooting Star drones made a historical appearance at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 Opening Ceremony on Thursday. The drones were first-ever drone light show of its kind at the Winter Olympics. The light show set a Guinness World Record for the “most unmanned aerial vehicles airborne simultaneously.”

Intel Shooting Star Drones are an unmanned aerial vehicle, designed specifically for the purpose of entertainment. The drones are outfitted with LED lights that have the ability to create numerous color combinations and can be programmed for all sorts of animation as well. The whole squadron of drones can be controlled by a single pilot.
“It’s been exciting for us to partner with Intel on the Winter Olympics, as they continue to push the limits with their advanced drone light show technologies. From flying 100 drones simultaneously in 2015, to 500 drones in 2016, and now more than 1,000 drones – the sky is the limit with entertaining through Intel drone light shows.” -Sam Prosser, commercial director EMEA APAC Guinness World Records.
