I think we can all agree that Disney is most often at the forefront of immersive experiences. It was only a matter of time before they figured out the first of many ways that they will use drone technology to wow audiences. With everything from the first animatronic characters to the ingenious other creations of imagineers, we are often captivated by the magic that is Disney.
This was the first-of-its-kind light show. It features 300 Intel Shooting Star drones, all synchronized to create the magic that you see in the videos below. The drone light show is best viewed from the water side of the WestSide district, however, it can be seen across all of Disney Springs.
Due to drone battery limitations, the shows are limited in length. It is said that Disney is considering 3-4 showings an evening. It makes a perfect before-dinner or after-dinner show and is expected to increase the amount of time that people stay in the park, eat, and shop.
We also saw an example of a synchronized drone light show at Superbowl LI, featuring Lady Gaga singing
God Bless America. Starting to see the possibilities? They are really endless.
With the technology that Intel has pioneered, coupled with the power of drones, you will begin to see more and more of these fascinating aerial light shows all around the world. As battery technology advances and drone technology, itself, advances, the sky is really the limit as to what can be done. (Yes, I get the pun!)
Drones are changing the way people view the world on a daily basis. They are not going away and they are making it easier and easier to capture a new perspective on things. (Literally) In later blog posts, we will discuss how drones are impacting emergency search and rescue missions. Where do you think drone technology is going in regards to entertainment, immersive experiences, light shows, etc? Can you imagine drone videography of a drone light show? That would be amazing!
