On Friday the 23rd of July 2021, the impressive Opening Ceremony of the 2021 Olympic Games took place in Tokyo Japan.

In the mix of the wondrously choreographed opening ceremony was a drone display that took the shape of the Earth. The drone sky display was made up of 1800 drones that were perfectly synchronised thanks to their programming.

Intel partnered closely with the Tokyo 2021 Olympic Games creative team to incorporate the dedicated ultra-lightweight drones. They are designed purely for 3D LED lighting displays for entertainment and, needless to say, the drone display was absolutely breathtaking!

However, this is not the first time drones were used for a display at the Olympics. Back in 2018, a drone display including a total of 1200 drones were used at the opening ceremony of the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang.

The idea of the drone display at the 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games is Symbolise the global solidarity and unity in diversity that the Olympic Games represent.
