Single Computer Operated Fleet of Drones for Gaga Show

The opening of Lady Gaga's halftime show at the Super Bowl featured an amazing sight you can expect to see more of in the future: a fleet of 300 drones lighting up the sky and transforming into an American flag. 

The drones, dubbed the "Shooting Stars," did not communicate with each other but were controlled by a person using a single computer with technology that maker Intel says can be used to operate fleets of more than 10,000 drones, TechCrunch reports. 

 

The basketball-sized Intel drones are a new, simple type of drone "designed for entertainment purposes such as festivals and entertainment events" and are capable of creating up to 4 billion color combinations, Intel says in a press release.

Because of FAA and Super Bowl restrictions, as well as the unpredictability of the weather, the stunning drone show was pre-recorded earlier in the week. The drones were also used to create a Pepsi logo.
