Lady Gaga’s buzzy drones

From Wired: "Lady Gaga did something new (at the Super Bowl): An army of dancing drones, ducking and dodging over the Houston skyline, transforming from stars to a fluttering flag. It's probably the first time you've seen 300 drones flying in formation, but it's almost certainly not the last. The technology underpinning the Intel Shooting Star drone system is fascinating in and of itself, but its potential applications are even more so. The same drones that accompanied Lady Gaga will one day revolutionize search-and-rescue, agriculture, halftime shows, and more. Synchronized programmable drones are easier to control (and) the technology offers far more practical, and potentially life-saving, applications."
