The half-time show during the super Bowl is normally one of the main events of the year. To ensure that this continues for this year’s Super Bowl, Intel collaborated with Lady Gage to fly 300 quadcopter drones to create an awesome show of colours and formations.
The quadcopters are capable of creating more than 4 billion colour combinations, but Intel only used a few during the show, showing a red and blue moving star formation, an American flag, a Pepsi logo, and finally, Intel’s logo.
Josh Walden, general manager of Intel’s New Technology Group said the following about it:
“Lady Gaga and the Super Bowl creative team wanted to pull off something that had never been done before and we were able to combine Intel drone innovation with her artistry to pull off a truly unique experience, The potential for these light show drones is endless and we hope this experience inspires other creatives, artists and innovators to really think about how they can incorporate drone technology in new ways that have yet to even be thought of.”
At the moment, there isn’t a YouTube video that we can show you of this, however, there are a few recordings on Twitter that show the action, here’s a couple of them:

To top of the drone display, Intel has also partnered with the NFL to use it’s 360-degree playback technology to show playbacks of events from the Super Bowl from the eyes of the player.
