2010 Light Show Displays Coming To Your Town??
Can you imagine someday soon, instead of fireworks you have a million of these things flying around in the sky. It’s called the Flyfire. It looks like it’s a take off of the RC Firefly helicopter. Which were introduced early last year but they updated it with more LEDs and a computer generated control system to synchronize the patterns so that is can display amazing results. Take a look, pretty cool.
“In its first implementation, the Flyfire project sets out to explore the capabilities of this display system by using a large number of self-organizing micro helicopters. Each helicopter contains small LEDs and acts as a smart pixel. Through precisely controlled movements, the helicopters perform elaborate and synchronized motions and form an elastic display surface for any desired scenario.”
Of course I have to wonder if they will be made here in the US and put some people back to work? By the way these Firefly RC helicopters were available last time I looked at Radio Shack for around $20 but now you can actually get them on Ebay right here for under $20 and yes they are made in China
Now just think, a nice summer evening and you’re sitting outside with friends and you look up and there they are. Ten thousand of them quietly humming above advertising your favorite washing detergent. Yup, can see advertisers going crazy with these things…….
