A few days ago Drone Dossier reported on the ban on flying drones within a 34.5 mile radius of where the Super Bowl is being played in Houston, but that is not the only drone news associated with the big game.
Earlier this week security staff caught a drone flying over a Falcon’s practice at Rice University. The initial reaction of everyone at Drone Dossier was a collective, “Looks like Bill Belichick is using drones now!” But Peter King, the lone journalist present at the practice seemed to be pretty sure the drone was owned by a local resident that lived near the practice facility. But hey, you never know, maybe that local resident was Patriots fan!
Even through drones are banned from flying anywhere near NRG Stadium the will still get their time in the limelight, as Lady Gaga’s Halftime show will feature “hundreds of lit-up drones”. Drones formations with light have already been used at Disney and other venues, so it makes sense that the Super Bowl Halftime show is including the latest and coolest tech toys to make the performance a little more interesting.
