Superbowl LI patriotism swarms with Intel drone display

From the prideful entrance of President George H.W. and First Lady Barbara Bush to the American Flag behind a patriotic Lady Gaga, Superbowl LI brought us closer together.

WASHINGTON, January 6, 2017 – One thing missed in much of the Superbowl LI coverage is the flowing patriotism of the event.  From the proud Navy midshipman that escorted President and Mrs. Bush to conduct the coin toss to the stadium, including players and coaches, that all stood and applauded our 41st President to Lady Gaga’s patriotic half-time show to the redemptive performance of the New England Patriots, who set Superbowl records after coming back from a 21 point half-time deficit, for a few hours, it felt that American pride was swelling.

There is also a backstory to the Superbowl and that is technology.   Popular Science provides some background to the drones that lit up the sky over the NRG Stadium
