Are drones the fireworks of the future?

The folks at Intel have pulled off something pretty amazing, but we don’t think it will replace fireworks any time soon and certainly isn’t the fireworks of the future but still pretty cool!.  They launched 100 drones simultaneously computer programmed to pattern and light the sky in synch with Beethoven’s 5th for a dramatic scene never before attempted.

While there are some serious similarities in the set up to make this happen such as the choreography and software create to make it happen, we still think fireworks are much more entertaining for the masses.

As we drove down the street towards the house the sky suddenly lit up with fireworks!  Now, I had never before wished I was at a baby shower but this sure made it interesting!  My interest piqued, I walked up to find out who and why they were shooting fireworks at a baby shower?
