What impressed people at the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics was the drone show adorning the night sky. 1824 UAVs formed the Olympic logo, which later became a blue earth symbolizing peace. Intel also used more than 1,200 drones to stage a light show at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.

This time, the company’s drone with four wings and the name “Shooting Star” is used. The number is about 1.5 times that of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. One frame is only 340 grams, light in weight, and can withstand strong winds with a maximum speed of less than 11 meters per second.

Each drone this time is equipped with 4 ultra-high-definition LEDs. Suzuki Kunisaki, the president of Intel Japan Corporation, stated that “(with the help of 4 LEDs) a bright and borderless brightness has been achieved, and a more detailed graphic performance has become possible.” During the Pyeongchang Olympics, each drone was equipped with only one LED. The movement of the drone, the color of the light, and the brightness are all designed through animation software.

At the Tokyo Olympics, Intel provided technologies such as data generation and processing using high-performance CPU (central processing unit). Players can instant analysis operation by a plurality of cameras, or by converting the free angle data perspective, these techniques are also televised been applied.

The torch ignited on the torch stage was fueled by hydrogen for the first time in the history of the Olympic Games (at the National Arena in Shinjuku, Tokyo on the 23rd)

Panasonic delivered projectors, audio equipment and lighting equipment for projection mapping to the Tokyo National Arena where the opening ceremony was held to help the opening ceremony performance. Regarding audio equipment, clear sound can be heard even if it is far away from the speakers. Lighting fixtures can be switched on and off instantly, and this design enables ultra-high-definition 4K and 8K live broadcasts to show vivid colors.

Taking into account the global environment is a major theme of this Olympic Games. The torch platform set up on the National Stadium and Yume Bridge (located in Koto-ku, Tokyo) was provided with hydrogen by ENEOS Holdings.

Hydrogen comes from renewable energy sources. It is manufactured by Japan’s New Energy Industry Technology Development Organization (NEDO) and others at the “Fukushima Hydrogen Research Base” (Nanie Town, Fukushima Prefecture) located in Fukushima Prefecture, and then shipped to Tokyo. This is the “green hydrogen” produced by electrolysis of water using renewable energy power. No carbon dioxide is emitted during manufacturing.

For manufacturing aluminum torch flame by the Japanese integrated building materials to live Li (LIXIL) responsible. The company’s technology for recycling aluminum and manufacturing window frames has been well received. Approximately 30% of the materials have been reused from the window frames of temporary houses where the victims of the Great East Japan Earthquake lived on March 11.

The main body of the torch is manufactured by UACJ extrusion processing (located in Chuo-ku, Tokyo) involved in metal processing and sales. Current Olympic Games -fire torch need to implement complex designs form flower designs at the same time lightweight. The company repeated the design of the mold and took about 3 years to complete it. The torch is 71 cm long and weighs 1.2 kg. The sacred flame lit by about 10,000 torches spread throughout Japan.

AOKI Holdings, a large Japanese menswear manufacturer, provided 1,600 sets of “ceremonial costumes” and “opening ceremony costumes” worn by the Japanese Olympic delegation at press conferences and other occasions. In design competitions implemented in 2019 such as the Japan Olympic Committee (JOC), AOKI Holdings stood out from dozens of companies.

The opening ceremony costume of the Japanese Olympic delegation is a white jacket and red shorts. In the fabric of the jacket, small holes are formed using the special techniques of Japanese craftsmen to improve breathability and stretchability. Make shirts and jackets with water absorption and quick-drying functions. Aoki Akihiro, the president of AOKI Holdings, said expectantly that “the technology that has been manufacturing suits in (Japan) for 60 years can be promoted to the outside world”.

“Uniqlo”, a subsidiary of Japanese clothing company Fast Retailing, provided official clothing to the Swedish delegation. The country is regarded as an environmentally-friendly developed country, and clothing attaches importance to the elements of sustainability. Recycled polyester from recycled PET bottles is used.

When delegations from various countries at the opening ceremony entered, the theme songs of popular home games in Japan and abroad were used. Nine of the six titles of Japanese game developers Square Enix Holdings (SQUARE ENIX HD) such as “Dragon Quest” and “Final Fantasy” were adopted.

This caused a lot of repercussions on the Internet, and some netizens even said that “The song of “Dragon Quest” is so exciting that you get goose bumps.” In terms of Japanese game companies, Capcom’s “Monster Hunter” and three works of Bandai Namco Holdings were selected, and Sega Sami Holdings and Konami Holdings also each had two works selected.
