Olympics Fireworks Faked

12 08 2008

I found this on InformationWeek (http://www.informationweek.com/news/personal_tech/TV_theater/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=210002310) and it turns out that the fireworks for Beijing Olympics opening ceremony were faked. Well, not all of it. Part of the fireworks for the opening ceremony were computer generated in order to avoid, well, putting a helicopter on fire. It’s possible though. Seeing the whole fireworks went up on the sky and if the pilot wasn’t careful enough, that pilot could have been killed. Still, my overall feeling of the entire opening ceremony was spectacular. Aside from the fireworks, the whole ceremony still blew everybody away anyway.
