Entertainment is one of the first genres that technology has influence over. This has been true since the early nineteenth century and seems as if it will not be changing for a while now. Apparently, Intel and Disney have collaborated to create a one-of-a-kind 300-drone show over the Walt Disney Resort in Florida, USA.
Intel has been working very hard on drones and its technology has come up with drones that can be used for any purpose imaginable. One of these cool uses is entertainment. The silicon giant has built a special kind of drone that will populate the skies of the Walt Disney Resort. Called the Shooting Stars, the drones will paint colorful images across the sky over the Disney Springs shopping, dining and entertainment district.
The show will be called “Starbright Holidays” and is expected to debut on the 16th of November, Thursday. It will run through until January 6th, 2017.
“When Disney set out to create an all-new holiday experience at Disney Springs, we realized there was a great opportunity to collaborate on the project to deliver a fresh and innovative approach to its world-renowned light shows,”
said senior vice president and general manager of Intel’s New Technology Group, Josh Walden, in a statement.
“Together, we worked to tackle the new frontier of animation, picturing the sky as our canvas and flying lights as ink.”
The Intel Shooting Star is designed to be lightweight and is composed of a Styrofoam body and plastics and weighs just 280 grams– that’s less than the weight of a volleyball. The quadcopter show drone is also equipped with LED lights that come with over 4 billion color combinations and is easily programmed for any animation.
