Intel announced a partnership with Ferrari North America on Monday to introduce a new version of its video-capturing drones, called "Shooting Star Mini".

At its CES keynote, Intel showed an impressive light show with the full effect of the tiny drones flying in 3D space.

The tech giant tried to forget its high-profile security dramas by staging a glittering drone light show over the fountains of the Bellagio in Las Vegas on Tuesday. A scaled-down version of that system now works indoors, Intel says, making it ideal for conferences, Vegas shows and bar mitzvahs. Continue reading about Intel's new drone.

Kelly further argued that an injunction would only cause more confusion. "We are disappointed in today's decision", Gupta said in a statement .

Intel says drones equipped with number-crunching AI programs could spped up the process thanks to real-time data analysis that may "find unexpected insights that the driver can use to improve". The drones are custom-built for entertainment purposes and feature a lightweight structure and emit more than 4 billion color combinations. Weighing in at roughly 300 grams (just over 10 ounces), the drones are designed specifically for Intel's light shows, so they aren't weighed down with features like Global Positioning System or additional sensors.

If you're heading to CES, you haven't missed it: the show will take place twice a day until Thursday. They danced on the Kygo's "Stargazing" song. We've seen Intel perform synchronized drone light shows before; a year ago at Coachella, in Singapore last August, and to promote the Warner Bros. home video release of Wonder Woman (2017) in Los Angeles last September. While not available for consumers, the system, designed specifically for light shows, appears to be expanding to more venues.
