Indoor fireworks? Intel broke records with 100-drone light show at CES

Intel has always been proud of its drone-based light shows - including airing a (pre-taped) halftime show at the last Super Bowl. A single pilot can fly up to 100 of them at once. A scaled-down version of that system now works indoors, Intel says, making it ideal for conferences, Vegas shows and bar mitzvahs.

The Intel Shooting Star drone is now behind a number of light shows outside of those record-breaking events, including Disney Orlando.

Using software, a single person can create a light show with a large fleet of the tiny drones. The drones are custom-built for entertainment purposes and feature a lightweight structure and emit more than 4 billion color combinations.

The new Intel Indoor Location System powering the Intel Shooting Star Mini drones expands Intel's possibilities for entertainment by allowing the drones to maintain position and navigate indoors without GPS to create attractive drone light shows.

The new indoor flight record follows Intel's own outdoor record of 500 drones, set in 2016 in Germany.

The skyline above the Las Vegas Strip lit up Monday night, and not due to the usual flare from the famous hotels but instead a first-of-its-kind drone light show.

These drones opened Intel's CES keynote.

If you're heading to CES, you haven't missed it: the show will take place twice a day until Thursday.

The drones were performing to a special version of the song Stargazing, by Kygo. While not available for consumers, the system, designed specifically for light shows, appears to be expanding to more venues.
