Drones are getting cooler and cooler, day by day. This video is the perfect example of what I’m talking about.

Remember the racing scene from The Phantom Menace of the Star Wars collection? I’m not sure if they were trying to recreate it here, but it sure feels like it.

I’ve never seen the drones used in this video, so I went ahead and did some research, and found this:
