Drones light up the sky at Air Force Academy

Creating an animation of a U.S. Air Force jet, Intel Shooting St

Intel put on a spectacular drone light show in collaboration with the US Air Force Academy in Colorado on Friday 1st November.

The hardware giant made use of its Shooting Star drone technology to ensure that, under the cover of darkness, the only thing viewers could see was the spectacular light formations of over 500 drones on display.

Shooting Star allows drones to be synchronised to perform complex aerial choreography presenting images of everything from aliens to UFOs before culminating in a tribute to the Air Force Academy.

Air Force cadets were involved in the setup and testing of the show in advance of its launch.

The Air Force Academy is the latest in a long line of locations to implement Intel’s Shooting Star system as part of elaborate entertainment as Time Magazine previously made use of the technology to create an elaborate ‘world’s first’ magazine cover.
