Olympic drones
« on: February 09, 2018, 20:29:28 PM »
Wasn’t that much interested in the Olympic opening ceremony, however this video caught my eye, and is quite frankly amazing.
Apparently arranged by Intel and comprises of 1200 drones.

You need to watch right to the end!

It appears that the drone show broadcast as part of the opening ceremony was prerecorded last December. The show on the night was only to be 500 drones and it was cancelled due to too many spectators standing under the flying area.
