Not to long ago a group of us on the morning 8:35 gathering were discussing a drone light show that some had seen on television the night before. I came across this video which explains what it takes to produce an autonomous aerial light show and I thought I'd share:
This particular show is considered to be small using 136 individual drones but the technology scales upward. Some of the larger shows produced to date have had more than 3000.
The video is best viewed full screen.
