…Intel CEO Brian Krzanich asked marketing director of perceptual computing Anil Nanduri what he would do with 100 flying drones. Nanduri put that challenge to a small group of artists and technology researchers at Ars Electronica Futurelab in Hamburg, Germany.
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.
