Riders on the Storm – in Nottingham?

A green ghost rider appeared in the sky over the British city of Nottingham when scientists started testing a newly developed projecting device which allows the beaming of moving images directly onto clouds for the first time ever.

The image of a galloping horse rider was projected onto the clouds from a distance of 50 meters by a special laser-based projection system mounted on an aircraft.

The idea of such a device originally came to Dave Lynch as he was doing his master’s degree.

During his studies he stumbled upon a military paper on the war in Vietnam, describing sky projections that were used as a psychological weapon against the Vietnamese.

( Vietnam kicked off in 1955 – tho it’s the 60’s to early 70’s era that US is best known for)

So when you cue up at dawn for your latest piece of tech gismo in the sales – just reflect that you’re buying defunct military tech 50 years down the line – and maybe ask yourself – what else do they have in ‘store’ for us.

And I don’t mean ‘apple store’.
