Among the dinosaurs that menaced xkcd artist Randall Munroe during his lecture at MIT were a pair of radio-controlled velociraptors that occupied a right-hand portion of the stage. When the velociraptors moved towards Munroe, the artist reached for the squirt gun loaded with grape juice that had been conveniently provided.

This year was the first year that the Independence Day concert and fireworks show were broadcast nationally in High Defintion.



Pyro Spectaculars, the company that produced the fireworks display for Boston's celebration, used new "HD Fireworks" in this year's show. The new fireworks are designed to detonate at lower altitudes with richer colors that work well with the High Definition broadcast.
