So it seems that many communities, especially in drought areas of the country, are replacing traditional fireworks with drone fireworks. These communities consider the latter to be a safer alternative to traditional fireworks which killed 8 people and injured 13,000 individuals in 2017.
Natalie Cheung, Intel’s General Manager of Drone Light Shows, says that drone fireworks alleviate the risk of wildfires, noise, and pollution. “It’s something that’s green. We can reuse the same drones from the Olympics from Fountains of Bellagio to July 4 shows,” she said.
500 of the company’s shooting star drones have been programmed to move in 3D animation, featuring LED lights, that can create more than four billion color combinations. So listeners, which is it? Drone fireworks or traditional fireworks? Let us know your thoughts!
