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.
Kim Jong Un invites South Korean president Moon Jae-in to Pyongyang
After a chaotic year of nuclear war threats and nuclear and missile tests from the North, it was a striking visual moment. They are "the same people as us, they're using the language as us, but I don't think they are the same country", he said.
END OF MERKEL: Socialists pulling chancellor 'into DOWNFALL' as party 'DETERIORATES'
Many young and leftist members are against the renewed so-called Grand Coalition between the SPD and the Union. The results from that are due in early March, and that vote is now looking too close to call either way.
Sonos made a playlist for Apple's HomePod launch
While Apple's Siri voice assistant came early to the market, the company is late to the smart speaker trend. Unlike in the Alexa app, meanwhile, there's no log of what Siri heard and what her response was.
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.
