One of the most awe-inspiring moments from the Winter Olympics opening ceremony was Intel’s light show, created entirely with the technology company’s Shooting Star drones—setting a world-record with 1,218 of them, to be precise. The show was part of a long-term partnership where Intel will be bringing its technology to the Olympic Games through 2024.

Though the show was pre-recorded (and a live portion was canceled due to logistical problems), it was a masterful execution, displaying images such as a snowboarder and the Olympic rings. According to Engadget, Intel is planning to do more drone shows, at a smaller scale of 300 drones, during medal ceremonies.
