On December 18 of last year, the EFYI Group and the University of Tianjin created a unique “starry night” in the sky of Tianjin: totally dedicated to Vincent Van Gogh.
EFYI Group and Tianjin University in China have established the record animation time performed by unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs): 26 minutes and 19 seconds, according to the website of the Guinness.
According to CNN, the main theme of the presentation was the life and works of the Dutch artist and painter Vincent van Gogh. Drones organized themselves into the skies in formations that resembled their most famous paintings, such as The Sunflowers or The Starry Night.
The style in which the aircraft moved and painted the skies also resembled Van Gogh: with thick “brushstrokes” and a dramatic approach. “Animation is a way of telling a story, of telling something that we want to tell,” said Zhang Siqi, director of operations at EFYI Group.
THE Guinness documented the entire process and detailed each step of the presentation. Behind the narrative was meticulous technical planning.
EFYI Group used high-precision positioning technology and synchronization technology to achieve “coordinated action”, explained Zhao Shilei, product director to Guinness.
The 600 drones used were of the same model – the Agile Bee II – which weighs approximately 1.3 kg and flies at about 30 kilometers per hour.
