Drones have flown over blowholes and detected heartbeats from the sky. They’re also good entertainers.
Ehang, Chinese drone manufacturer known for its autonomous flying taxi, flew 1,374 drones over the Xi’an City Wall. The company reclaimed the Guinness World Record for the “most number of unmanned aerial vehicles airborne simultaneously.”
The drones danced into 16 formations, including the Xi’an City Wall, the Silk Road and the number 1374. But the performance wasn’t perfect. While the drones were airborne, they failed to complete all the formations. In fact, they were a mess for a good chunk of the 13-minute show, according to the South China Morning Post.
