If there's one thing you can't overstate, it's how much the Chinese people loooooved the Olympics. So it was kind of expected that Chinese fireworks makers would capitalize on the magic of the Opening Ceremonies by selling similar DIY pyrotechnics. This Chinese New Year, watch for the Bird's Nest series of fireworks going off all over the country, including smiley faces and footprints, blossoming peony flowers and “silver and red waterfalls.” Gizmodo-readers in Beijing can grab their share of explodey things at over 200 locations across the city come Nov. 15th.

SO the amount of fireworks broadcasted on TV was real? I thought some of em had to be digital so on TV it would look spectacular. Kinda like the Iran missile launch, and the Kim Jon Ill shadow. Speaking of the North Korean, my teacher for digital design just gave us a project to fix the bad photoshoping of Kim.
