Intel Introduces 'Shooting Star' Drone

Aircraft Designed Specifically For Aerial Light Shows

The first Intel drone designed specifically for light shows has been introduced by the company. The company says the "Shooting Star" drone will allow the company to "demonstrate that drone light shows can redefine entertainment and create amazing new experiences in the night sky."

Writing on the Intel blog, Anil Nanduri, vice president in the New Technology Group and general manager of unmanned aviation systems for the Perceptual Computing Group at Intel Corporation, said that the company recently put the fleet of Intel Shooting Star drones to the test in Germany, and set a new Guinness World Record for having The Most UAVs Airborne Simultaneously with 500 Intel Shooting Star drones lighting up the night sky. That number outdid the previous record of 100 drones in-flight achieved by Intel simultaneously in less than a year.

The Intel Shooting Star drone is the company’s first drone created for entertainment light shows. Intel says it is designed with safety and creativity in mind with a super light-weight structure and virtually limitless color combinations. "We’ve also worked with the FAA to receive a Part 107 Waiver to fly these drones as a fleet with one pilot at night in the U.S. This means we can now create beautifully choreographed images in the nighttime sky quickly and easily in the U.S. We are looking forward to using this new fleet of Intel Shooting Star drones publicly soon," Nanduri wrote.
