The next enchanting show that took place during the break of the final NFL game, with the participation of Lady Gaga and three hundred hovering drones in the air, was made possible thanks to the help of the electronic giant Intel. Constantly rebuilt in the night sky, drones turned into a developing American flag, then into shimmering stars.
The project, called “Falling Stars”, debuted as part of a three-week show at Disneyland during the holiday season. All drones are subject to one operating system, which is able to control much more than 300 – up to 10,000 UAVs at the same time.
However, so far the premiere has been limited by the stringent requirements of the US Federal Aviation Agency, which prohibits the use of drones in the area of the stadium where the NFL final was held. Therefore, the show was demonstrated in the record created a week earlier.
The performance began with a “starfall”, created with the help of Intel processors. The flickering drones-stars, approaching the ground, turned blue and red and formed into an American flag.
Specifically for the show were developed quadrocopters, equipped with LED backlighting, which can create more than 4 billion color combinations and is easily programmed for any animation.
Each drone supports wireless communication with the central computer, performing its own unique dance and not being afraid to encounter hundreds of other machines.
