Genesis drone show used a record-breaking 3,281 drones


Hyundai’s luxury car brand Genesis used 3,281 drones to create its logo over the Shanghai skyline on March 29 to celebrate the brand’s arrival in China. That number of drones sets a new Guinness World Record for “The Most Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in the sky simultaneously”, according to a Genesis press release

Genesis’ record surpasses Shenzhen’s previous Damoda Intelligent Control Technology, which used 3,051 drones in a display on September 20. Here’s a video of that screen, which I personally think is even more impressive than Genesis’:

Intel also held the record at one point by using 1,218 Shooting Star drones to create the Olympic rings over Pyeongchang for the 2018 Winter Olympics.
