This year's Super Bowl half time show, featuring Lady Gaga, included a pre-recorded lighting display made entirely using drones! Intel's 300 "Shooting Star" drones were equipped with LEDs and programmed to create colorful shapes in the sky, including a patriotic American flag. The display was granted a special dispensation from the FAA to fly up to 700 feet, which is the highest the "Shooting Star" drones have ever flown.
