04 Mar This is Cool: Watch 100 Drones Dance To An Orchestra
If 2015 was the year consumer drones took off then 2016 is poised to be the year when curious and creative people use these unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to push the limits of human imagination.
That’s what happened when Intel CEO Brian Krzanich asked marketing director of perceptual computing Anil Nanduri what he would do with 100 flying drones. He wanted Nanduri to find a way to push the bounderies and show people an exciting new way to experience the wonders of drone technology.
Nanduri put that challenge to a small group of artists and technology researchers at Ars Electronica Futurelab in Linz, Austria.
The team quickly created an outdoor flying drone light show syncopated to a live orchestra.
When all 100 light-equipped drones danced and painted 3D shapes and messages in sky above Flugplatz Ahrenlohe, Tornesch, near Hamburg, Germany in early November, a new record was born.
