FIREWORKS AND TECHNOLOGY

FIREWORKS AND TECHNOLOGY

Since the 9th century B.C, fireworks have delighted many hundreds of thousands of people across the globe. But, as technological advances continue to improve our day to day lives, we ask, how much have fireworks changed since their discovery almost 3000 years ago? In a nutshell; they haven’t and the formula still remains the same today as it has for centuries.

As our understanding and research into fireworks has progressed, we have discovered different options enabling the production of more vivid colours, the introduction of flash powder to the mix has improved upon the ferocity of the bursts as it burns at a higher speed than black powder, but ultimately the theory remains the same.

Along with technological advances in the firework production and manufacture, there has also been a steep rise in the use of drones to film fireworks displays from high above the bursts and the spectators. In fact, one enterprising Japanese company are using computers to synchronise drones to create moving images in the sky which resemble fireworks; but it’s just not the same.

With computer aided firing systems readily available to light the fireworks we have yet to see the technology been made available to improve the fireworks themselves? Very unlikely, but when it comes to enhancing the display, technology is ready to step in and lend a hand.

When you take a mix of water-jet packs, 3d imaging lasers and fireworks the effects can be stunning. A Dutch ‘Flyboard’ team regularly bring in Co2 cannons, lasers and their specially adapted equipment fitted with LED,s and smoke to create stunning effects to complement the fireworks, or is it the other way round, we will let you decide:
