The Largest Synchronized Quadrocopter Drone Swarm

Gizmodo describes the formation of 50 AscTec Hummingbird quadrocopters by Ars Electronica Futurelab and Ascending Technologies GmbH as “unnerving.”

“It gets even creepier when the quadrocopters team up and become a giant swarm, morphing into different shapes like a living organism,” Gizmodo’s Casey Chan writes.

The quadrocopters swarm up and around, change color and appear almost like stars in the night sky. The drones also make impressive movements collectively for a 3-D effect.

50 AscTec Hummingbird quadrocopters were used for the world premiere. This aircraft has already proven its reliability in many task areas. “The AscTec Hummingbird has outstanding flight attitude and position control, which was an important prerequisite not only because of safety concerns with a performance with thousands of spectators in the middle of the city,” said Daniel Gurdan, one of the four founders of Ascending Technologies. “In addition, we were excited about the creativity and the artistic aspect of this project.” In order to allow the Ars Electronica team to create computerized choreography, the company equipped the miniature helicopters with special radio receivers and slightly modified firmware. Otherwise, the quadrocopter, with a take-off weight of only 500 grams, was simply a standard model.
