Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl halftime show had no special guests — unless you count the drones.
Drones supplied Lady Gaga and the NFL with a show-stopping show-starter
— 300 Shooting Star drones painting the night sky in a pre-recorded
segment in Houston, as she sang “God Bless America.” The closing scene
with the Pepsi logo also was those same pre-recorded drones.
The Win spoke to two of Intel Drones’ top people — general manager
Natalie Cheung, who was on the ground in Houston running things, and
vice president of business Anil Nanduri, who organized the collaboration
— about the show and the future of drones in entertainment.
Let Cheung and Nanduri answer all your questions now that you’ve seen their work in action.

In a video recently recorded
by BYU civil engineering professor Kevin Franke, a dog lays in front of
the ruins of a house in the Italian mountains. Franke surmises the
dog’s owners may have lived there before the devastating earthquake on
While rescue efforts for the lethal 6.2 magnitude quake are over now,
Franke was there for another reason: He was one of four U.S. professors
invited to a special geotechnical engineering reconnaissance mission to
learn how the earthquake impacted ancient and modern infrastructure.
