Drone captures beautiful film flying through fireworks

This video—shot from a drone over West Palm Beach, Florida—takes you into the heart of a fireworks display. It almost feels like you are flying between explosions surrounded by colors hundreds of feet above the ground. I thought fireworks couldn't get any better and I was wrong. This is awesome!
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Great usage of technology! Wow! Enjoy!

Programming Hope: Changing the Face of Autism

Programming Hope: Changing the Face of Autism | Technological Sparks | Scoop.it
An inspirational feature length documentary about a group of technology pioneers changing the face of autism.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

I love to come across ways people are exploring technology in ways to help those that really need a miracle…Prayer is great but I think God likely created brains in most creatures because he prefers us too make great choices and discoveries that don't need bail out….Then we can relax and enjoy each other"s company and marvel at great natural and man made creations alike. Life is soother when both the creative king and ordinary creators don't have to trouble shoot and fix their designs and creations too often.
