To celebrate the opening of its Texas-based state-of-the-art Gigafactory, Tesla held an event called “Cyber Rodeo”. A tech-heavy spectacle that stayed true to Elon Musk’s style. Tesla outgrew its old location in California, so GigaTexas will serve as the company’s new world headquarters. It will also be the one-stop shop to build out the Cyber Truck, Cyber Semi, Model 3, and Model Y utility vehicles. About 15,000 people were invited to the grand opening. They guests were treated during the opening to live music, great food, a Drone show and fireworks.
The enthralling Drone display lasted for 10 minutes. Pumping techno served as the audio for formations that consisted of the outlines of Texas state, different Tesla vehicles, and even the Dogecoin Shiba!
Backbone got to be a part of the Opening Tesla HQ by being the direct line of support for Drone Stories. Drone Stories were commissioned by Tesla to run the drone show for the event. This support included securing the premise; ensuring it had power and storage for the 600 drones and equipment; an office for the design team and pilots; and coordinating last-minute labor hands for the test show and show day.
Backbone was the direct line of communication between Drone Stories and Tesla’s yard team. This line of communication ensured that everything ran smoothly. Overall, the execution of the show was done on time and it was a major success.
