Pixar’s UP Floating House becomes reality

Simply stunning I think you will agree.

On the morning of March 5th, inspired by Pixar’s animated movie UP, National Geographic Channel and a team of scientists, engineers and balloon pilots launched the 16 x 16 foot house with 300 8 foot balloons. The house floated around for about an hour and reached an altitude of over 10,000 feet. Look for more coverage of this in the fall of 2011 in a series called How Hard Can it Be.
