Since their invention over 2000 years ago, fireworks have changed very little but the way we watch them has changed dramatically.
The subsequent development of 3D mapping has been used to great effect across the world in conjunction with fireworks, technology has progressed leaps and bounds.
Some months ago we featured a pair of cardboard glasses fitted with different coloured lenses which when used to view pyrotechnics exploding high in the air gave the colourful burst another dimension as the picture is very slightly different for each eye, our brains then convert the image to what it thinks is the correct one, these different images fool our brains and give us what looks like a 3D image.
Working on a similar principle the good people at the Lego Florida have gone a step further with some glasses that create a different illusion, fireworks that burst into Lego bricks, the way this has been done is a closely guarded secret, somethings being more magical when we don’t know the way it’s done.
As you watch the video below you will see the difference with and without the clever trickery.
