ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Walt Disney World is using 300 drones in a new Christmas light show.
A dress rehearsal was held Wednesday night, but Disney has not announced dates for the show. The Orlando Sentinel (http://tinyurl.com/jbdvh8o) reports it is believed to be the first time drones will be used in a performance of this magnitude in the U.S.
Disney is collaborating with Intel on the project. The show will take place at Disney Springs.
Intel's drone weighs less than a volleyball and are equipped with four LED lights that can create over 4 billion color combinations. They can fly for 20 minutes and are allowed to fly as high as 400 feet. All 300 drones are controlled by one computer.
Disney has a second 300-drone fleet but has not said what they intend to use it for.
