Intel recently set a world record for flying 500 drones together in one formation to create the logo of the company in the sky. Each drone was equipped with a special LED that could produce four
billion colour combinations.
The whole orchestra was controlled by two operators, one for the live control and another was for the backup in case something goes wrong.
The 500 drones were controlled
by the sophisticated algorithm to check the battery levels and assign lesser roles to weaker drones — if one should drop out, a reserve unit automatically takes its place within a few seconds.
it’s exciting what technology has in store for us in the very near future. We can definitely now say “It’s time for rise of the machines.”
