Intel has recently broken the Guinness World Record for “most Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) airborne simultaneously,” an honor previously held by a team of researchers from the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California.

In its stunning artistic feat, named “Drone 100,” Intel programmed 100 drones (using its software, of course) to perform a light show to Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.
