Imagine the first time you saw a fireworks show, the smell, the sound, and that moment of awe. It was the coolest thing to see, and with each loud boom, you wanted more. Afterward, all you could do was talk about the show and happily waited for the next time you saw them. The first firework show was over 300 years ago, or so goes the legend. Since then, we have been obsessed with these shows, and thousands of people flock to fairgrounds, beaches, sports events, and celebrations to catch the local show in their towns. As technology advances, we find ways to improve old ways, which is where drone light shows come in. We are where all those people in the 1600s were when they first saw a firework show, but now we have drones with lights. Drone light shows are new; only a few have seen them in person. These shows are immersive; they are visually stunning and coordinate with music and sound effects, creating a memory that will bring you back to that first time you saw a firework.
There is an old saying; the sky is the limit; well, drones have taken that literally. Think about the first time you saw a spotlight; you could see from miles away, and it was cool to see. Now throw a hundred lights in the air, which is what a drone light show is. These lights can change colors like smart bulbs in houses. Not only do they change colors, but the drones can form different formations in the air, creating logos, movie scenes (check out the Star Wars show), and anything else your imagination can come up with. You can enjoy your favorite movie scene with family and friends, with the show just a few hundred feet away. Experience your favorite fictional battle like never before; the best part is that you get to share that with people around you. Now go back to that first time you saw a firework show and replace it with a drone light show; think of how you can tell people what you saw or show them what you recorded. The shows don’t just stop with the lights. Not only do you get the lights in the air, but you get an amazing sound experience with it too.
Sounds are a major part of any show, including fireworks, either with the sound of music playing or the natural sound they make. Part of being at a firework show is feeling the sounds of the fireworks; your senses get overwhelmed with stimulation, leaving you with a smile. Drone light shows are not different; each show uses sound to enhance your experience. When a show is created, a sound engineer looks at the final show and uses their expertise to bring you a complete picture. These sounds can be music, which is best for a Christmas show, or sound effects, usually used when recreating a scene. Imagine seeing a dragon fly across the sky, and at the same time, you hear it flap its wings, then it stops to shoot a fireball, and at the same time, the sound changes, and you hear that fireball. By being there, you will get to see what it feels like to be close to this magical beast, as close as you can get in real life. That is what being at a light drone show is all about. Every show should give you a complete feeling of joy and awe.
Only a few short years ago, you had to go to a theme park to see 3D productions. Drones have changed the game; they bring these productions to you. These shows can create anything you want and do them almost anywhere. The best part is that they reduce noise and harmful environmental damage. Drone light shows take fireworks to the next stage by improving the shows through technology.
