The Magic of Disney Meets Intel® Innovation

How the Magic Is Made

The Disney "Starbright Holiday Show – An Intel Collaboration" was the longest light show we've achieved, requiring 300 drones to be airborne for twelve minutes. A stunning way to bring Disney's brand to life, the 8-week engagement required technology that could illuminate the skies flawlessly every night.  

Setting a Spectacular Record

Our purpose-built light show system – the Intel® Shooting Star™ drone fleet1 – set the Guinness World Record in 2016 for the Most Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) airborne simultaneously. Only a single laptop and one pilot were needed to achieve lift-off for 500 beautifully choreographed drones.
