We have seen Intel’s ‘Shooting Star’ drones in action before during the Super Bowl, now we are seeing them at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

DJI Inspire 2

According to Intel, these drones are easily programmed to fly in a coordinated manner (swarm) and create all kinds of animations in the sky. Each drone is outfitted with LED lights that are capable of emitting more than 4 billion color combinations. As you can see in the photos and video below the drones from the chip manufacturer are indeed able to create a spectacular light show. even more so when combined with the fountains at the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas. Enjoy!

As a side note: Intel’s swarm of drones is a beautiful display, however, people are getting concerned that swarms of drones can be used in dangerous ways as well as we have seen in Syria recently.
