So what exactly is a Drone Show? Check out this YouTube video of a drone show in New York City from this past 4th of July, where drones create the Statue of Liberty...

Freaky, cool, and kinda nerve racking right??? Am I the only person who finds this slightly concerning? First off, think of the poor birds that are dealing with these drones...Second, drones are 10000% going to be the things that the government is going to use to control us right? Think about how they can program to do these drones to do anything they want, if they can make the Statue of Liberty then they can certainly terrorize us from above right? Maybe I am overreacting...regardless the free ice cream at Navy Pier this weekend sounds nice!
