A spectacular display of drone technology by Intel Corporation (USA) involving 100 small aircrafts being launched skywards in formation has earned a new world record title for the Most Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) airborne simultaneously. Read the full story:

Controlled on the ground by a crew using PCs with Intel software, the mass of drones lit up the night sky in sync to a live performance of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony and executed a stunning light show resembling a fireworks display.

“Drone 100” took place at Flugplatz Ahrenlohe, Tornesch, Germany, in November 2015. The record was set in collaboration with Ars Electronica Futurelab to push the limits of the UAV industry and to show what UAVs can be used for.

  1. Wow, so much negativity. Yes, it's a commercial for Intel but try to keep in mind that entertainment, art and financial sponsorship often go hand in hand. For me, just a fun video to watch and enjoy. Appreciate the time and effort it took to put the whole thing together. Thanks.

  2. Fabulous video.  technology used at its best    At 71 years old I can hardly comprehend the time and effort which went into the programming required in  making this out of this world event . Well done everyone.  Ignore the small minded one brain cell comments of mr. .STUPID.

  3. Doug lindauer sorry that you did not get anything from this video. I was able to catch everything you did not see. The Uav"s were controlled by a computer program opporated by an engineer. Which in turn was in sync with the music. Which created a new style of light show. That's about all you really need to get out of this. And that it was amazing and probably even more astonishing live and in person.
