Intel's New Shooting Star Mini Drones Really Put On A Show

One of those would be a drone light show that is taking place above the famous Bellagio Fountains on the Las Vegas Strip for the next 3 nights.

After the first official public day of CES (the show has technically been on since Sunday), Intel sent 250 of its Shooting Star Drones over one of Las Vegas' most recognisable landmarks. The Shooting Star Mini drones then go out and follow the choreography.

The drone market is rapidly growing in the world. Intel worked around those difficulties by creating a new system specifically allowing drones to be choreographed while avoiding obstacles, aptly named the Indoor Location System.

However, junior trade minister Greg Hands said there was no geographical restriction that would prevent the U.K.'s participation. Michael Gove, the environment secretary, said in December that parliament would have an effective veto over any trade deal.


Complex algorithms could also find subtle changes in data that humans may miss, helping ideal a vehicle's setup as well as the driver's technique. This algorithm ensures that each drone keeps its own path and avoids the airspace of the others. The Shooting Stars swarm could be controlled by a single operator. A dozen or so took the stage and danced above a projected piano, playing a tune reminiscent of Tom Hanks' performance in Big.

Intel says drones equipped with number-crunching AI programs could spped up the process thanks to real-time data analysis that may "find unexpected insights that the driver can use to improve". Its light source can create more than 4-billion colour combinations designed for aerial displays. We've seen Intel perform synchronized drone light shows before; previous year at Coachella, in Singapore last August, and to promote the Warner Bros. home video release of Wonder Woman (2017) in Los Angeles last September.
