The Shooting Star is Intel's first drone created for entertainment light shows. At 280 grams, it's lighter than a volleyball, and comes with built-in LED lights that can create over 4 billion color combinations, Intel says.
Intel has recently acquired drone companies like MAVinci GmbH and Ascending Technologies to beef up its drone expertise.This isn't the first time Intel lobbed the idea of drones replacing fireworks. At this year's CES, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich shared his vision for this, claiming drones are safer and easier to control than fireworks.
"I see a future where fireworks and all of their risks of smoke, dirt are a thing of the past, and they're replaced by shows that have unlimited creativity and potential - and powered by drones," Krzanich said.To celebrate the release of Shooting Star, Intel also shared this video that shows 500 drones lighting up the sky:
