Star Wars Night has a new twist. Post-game DRONE show, here with the Oakland A’s.
These drones are programed to create a light show set to music flying overhead at the stadium postgame.
Drone light shows are performed by illuminated, synchronized, and choreographed groups of drones that arrange themselves into various aerial formations. Almost any image can be recreated in the sky by a computer program that turns graphics into flight commands and communicates them to the drones.
Intel is one of the sources for this show, you can check it out here: intel.com
According to some quick research: “Drone light shows start at $10,000, and go up from there based on the number of drones and how complex the drone light show animation you want for the drones to perform” (source) ….so this is not likely going to replace fireworks anytime soon, but it is an interesting new addition to the post-game show options.
Hello, what have we here?
