Thousands Of Drones At Winter Olympics Break World Record

posted by Lisa Foxx/Sabrina Hooyman - 

WOW! Thousands of drones were used to put on a light show during the opening ceremony for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, Friday morning.

A total of 1,218 drones outfitted with LED lights were used to paint "colorful illustration in the sky," setting a new Guinness World Record on the number of drones flown at the same time, according to an Intel spokeswoman. 

Intel holds the current record after 500 drones were flown simultaneously for a light show in Krailling, Germany, on Oct. 7.

The drones are controlled through an automated software program, though they do have one pilot for backup, Intel said.  It looked SO AWESOME!!! My favorite part so far :) GO TEAM USA!!
