At Consumer Electronics Show 2018, Intel wowed the audience with 100 drones flying at the same time.
The Shooting Star Mini is the company’s first drone designed and built to enable amazing indoor light show experiences.
An important computing platform for the future, drones help people work and play with aerial spectacles. Intel’s leaders are positioning the company to provide the computer, sensor, communications and cloud integration for the growing drone ecosystem.

This drone is the counterpart to the Intel Shooting Star that has been illuminating night skies at music festivals like Coachella, marquee sporting events, and celebrations across Asia. Intel previously set a Guinness World Records title in the fall of 2016 when the company flew 500 Intel Shooting Star drones outdoors in Hamburg, Germany.
The Intel Shooting Star Mini drone is designed with safety and creativity in mind with a super-lightweight structure and propeller guards.
The new Intel Indoor Location System powering the Intel Shooting Star Mini drones allows the drones to maintain position and navigate indoors without GPS to create beautiful drone light shows. Its light source can create more than 4 billion color combinations designed for visually stunning aerial displays.
