As more and more resources are invested in drone technology companies are eager to showcase some of the latest novelty and technical uses that drones could offer.
An army of high-flying drones expected to light up the sky at the opening ceremony of the Olympics was grounded.
Tis the season. The Winter Olympics have begun, a long-awaited time period where athletes from all over the world, from countless countries, come together to compete for a gold medal and a place in history.
The drone performance was put on by Intel, which has been delivering similarly impressive drone-based light performances over the last few years.
The spectacular sight of 1,218 drones forming the Olympic rings during the opening ceremony of the 2018 Winter Olympics was pre-recorded.
UN Security Council considers demand for 30-day Syria ceasefire
Thursday's air strikes are just the latest in a series of deadly attacks in Syria between rival forces that have led to civilian casualties.
Norwegian Olympic Team Sent 15000 Eggs After Google Translate Error
Should they need extra supplies, at least they know this: There's no shortage of eggs in PyeongChang. Twitter users had fun making puns about the eggs and speculating about how they might get used.
Toys 'R' Us Going-Out-Of-Business Sales Could Start Today
A little more than four months after Toys R Us announced it was closing 180 stores, liquidation sales are underway. The move follows a slump in the New Jersey-based company's holiday sales and a bankruptcy filing.
The Winter Olympics' first-ever drone light show has earned Intel the title from Guinness World Records for the "most unmanned aerial vehicles airborne simultaneously".
Despite the complexity of their routines, all of the drones used during an air show are controlled by a single computer and one drone pilot on the ground, according to Intel. Each one of the drones weighed approximately eight ounces and averaged a 20-minute flight time. "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".
Each drone weighs about as much as a volleyball and is fitted with LEDs that can beam any shape with 4 billion color combinations.
These drones are the handy work of Intel. Then, each of the drones gets assigned to be an "aerial pixel" of the image, creating the image in the night sky. You might remember a similar spectacle at Lady Gaga's 2017 Super Bowl half-time show, but that only involved about 300 drones.
