Light show with 3,281 drones breaks Guinness World Record


A luxury car company broke a Guinness World Record in China by using 3,281 drones to put on a light show in the night sky.

The Genesis light show in Shanghai, which celebrated the brand’s launch of the Genesis G80 car, featured 3,281 unmanned aerial vehicles, or UAVs, being arranged in multiple 3D images including depictions of the Genesis G80 and GV80 cars.

The drones were launched from both sides of the Huangpu River to put on the light show over the water.

The total 3,281 UAVs was enough to break the previous record of 3,051 drones involved in a single light show.
