1300 Dancing Drones Break Records in China
More than 1,300 illuminated drones flew simultaneously in a 13-minute flight over the Chinese tourist city of Xian. It’s a new Guinness World Record. Chinese drone company EHang flew 1,374 dancing drones simultaneously to break the Guinness World Record for the most unmanned aerial vehicles flown at the same time.
The drones took part in a 13-minute flight spread over a kilometer (.6 miles). The previous record was held by US technology firm Intel, which flew 1,218 drones during the Winter Olympics in South Korea in February.
The stunning display in the Chinese tourist city of Xian saw the drones take on 16 different 3D formations, including a camel, a Buddha and a high-speed train. The drones also paid tribute to Chinese President Xi Jinping’s cornerstone foreign policy initiative, One Belt One Road.
