Intel Drones Light Up Super Bowl

During the half time show at the American Football Super Bowl in Houston, 300 Intel Shooting Star drones were used to light up the sky. Lady Gaga was the star of the half-time show and the drones were used to highlight the start of her performance.

The Intel Shooting Star drones created a backdrop of colourful formations in the sky including twinkling stars that transformed into red and blue moving stars, before creating the American Flag for a dramatic finale that brought Lady Gaga to centre stage on the field. Finally, the Intel Shooting Star drones finished the halftime performance with a ten second showcase by forming the Pepsi logo in the sky that morphed into an Intel logo. Pepsi were the Super Bowl sponsor.

The Intel Shooting Star drones are a new type of unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), specifically designed for entertainment purposes such as festivals and entertainment events. The purpose-built quadcopter drone is built with safety in mind and equipped with LED lights that can create over four billion colour combinations and can easily be programmed for any animation.
