During the opening ceremony for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games over one thousand drones made an appearance, lighting up the sky above the stadium and sharing an important message with the world.
The impressive drone show was powered by 1,824 of Intel's Shooting Star drones to form a complex set of geometrical shapes before transitioning into the blue-and-white chequered emblem of Tokyo 2020. Symbolising the global solidarity and unity in diversity that the Games represent, the next-generation drones then reassembled to form a giant 3D representation of the world, creating one of the most eye-catching moments of the Opening Ceremony.
The Intel drone shows team collaborated closely with the Tokyo 2020 creative teams to bring the drones into the opening ceremony in the best way possible, through a display of connection, unity, and hope.
The Intel Premium drones – weighing just 340 grams, less than three-quarters of a pound – are specifically designed for entertainment purposes and are equipped with four LEDs that emit light that is true to colour and unmatched in brightness and vibrancy. Real-time kinematic (RTK) GPS also enables increased positional accuracy for higher resolution animations, sharper imagery, and more dynamic 3D animations.
