It is seldom that we come across the words “FAA” and “approved” in one sentence. But the FAA made an exemption for Intel as it the tech giant performed a drone light show in Palm Springs.
This was the first time the people enjoyed such an aerial experience in the United States. Manned by a single operator, 100 drones lit up, glimmering and pirouetting in the night sky.
Intel aims to replace fireworks with shows like these in large stadiums.
