Intel shows off it drone swarm skills during a light show at the Bellagio

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.

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.
