A little while back, the Intel Corporation celebrated their 50th anniversary by launching 2,018 Intel Shooting Star drones into the night sky at Folsom, California. By doing this, they broke the Guinness World Records title for the most unmanned aerial vehicles airborne simultaneously.

Anil Nanduri, vice president and general manager of the Intel Drone Group said, “Several years ago, we had an idea of flying drones forming the Intel logo over our corporate headquarters, and here we are doing just that. It really speaks to the innovative spirit that Intel was founded on 50 years ago”.

Below you can watch the show yourself, recorded by Paul Kitagaki Jr. for the Sacramento Bee.
