The House From Up! Has Been Built In Real Life—and It Flies!

This is really nuts. The people from National Geographic have built a house inspired by the Pixar's movie Up! Yes, a house tied to gas balloons that actually flies. I'm so giddy I can't barely type.

Sure, the 5 x 5 metre house is not a full house, but I don't care. It flies for real, thanks to three hundred weather balloons full of helium. The Up! house—which will be part of a new National Geographic TV series called How Hard Can It Be?—reached 10,000 feet and flew for about one hour. [My Modern Met via Fotomaf via Necedades]
