100 Drones syncing to Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony set a new world record
Drones can be a menace, drones can be lifesavers. The way in which they are used determines your perspective for them. Whatever your perspective might be, this world record setting attempt by Intel will make you look at drones in a completely new way. And with respect I must add. Intel Corporation USA launched 100 drones in the sky in formation to set the new Guinness World Records, but that is not what stunned the crowd. Drones put up a show that is awe-inspiring and you’ll wish you watched it live.
The real deal was the show they put in the air in the night sky. Orchestrating their movement and light show which was in perfect sync with the crew on ground who played Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. Of course, the drones were controlled by another set of crew on the ground, but synching their movement is a real task I can tell by experience.
Although the record-breaking attempt was filmed at Flugplatz Ahrenlohe, Tornesch, Germany, in November but it was only shown during Intel’s keynote on opening day of CES 2016. The record was officiated by Official Guinness World Records adjudicator Pravin Patel who was present during the record attempt.
This record titled ‘Most Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) airborne simultaneously’ was a combined effort by Intel and Ars Electronica Futurelab to show the capabilities of UAV and how they can be synchronized for certain task.
