Video: Record Number of Drones Show Off Aerial Dance

A video has just been released of a Guinness Record-breaking flight for the most drones airborne simultaneously, set in November at Flugplatz Ahrenlohe in Tornesch, Germany, a few miles northwest of Hamburg. “Drone 100” coordinated 100 UAS and provided a terrific show with multicolored aircraft creating patterns in the night skies.

The patterned flight took years to create and was arranged by Intel Corporation in collaboration with Ars Electronica Futurelab. The drones were controlled by a ground crew using PCs powered by Intel hardware. The record-breaking show was flown along with a live performance of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, with the orchestra on site at the airport.

Check out the video to see this spectacular use of drones.
