FAIRPORT New York(Weekly Hubris)—1 January 2022— In the 1960s, in-the-sky light displays in the US was comprised of fireworks (“low explosive pyrotechnic devices used for aesthetic and entertainment purposes”), which have been around since the Song dynasty (960–1279) in China. The 1980s saw the introduction of laser light shows. Lasers could draw 2D images on walls or other surfaces with light beams. The next frontier was crossed, however, with the use of drones flying in formation to create images.

The state of drone technology at the end of 2021 was pretty impressive!

The evolution of  drones-with-lights flying in formation has progressed to creating flying 3D images, and I’m looking forward to a time when I will be able to view such a large display in person. Here’s a video of what was accomplished in 2021:

Tim Bayer, Webmaster, and Assistant Editor of Weekly Hubris, was born and brought up in Webster, New York. He attended St. Bonaventure University, earning a BS in Computer Science, and then worked in the hi-tech world. In 2002 he turned his creative energies to product development and video production with the release of his first independently produced products. When the demand for web site design (TBayer.com) and freelance writing increased, he once again switched skill sets . . . to writing and web work. An avid or, to be more accurate, rabid, disc golfer, he may often be found chasing plastic while in pursuit of the perfect round on a disc golf course, or designing and developing disc golf products for Demogrid.com. He says he tries to find the humor hidden in everyday experiences, because, “life is too important to be taken seriously.” (Author photo by Tim Bayer)
