Watch: The floating house from “Up” recreated in real life

Pin it

A group of scientists were recently inspired by Pixar's Up and set out to see if you can actually make a house fly with balloons. And it turns out, you can! As long as the house is specially made to be very light and you're not using the balloons you'd get at a party store. Unfortunately, there is no gruff old man with a heart of gold or a talking dog, but it still looks pretty cool, so I'll take what I can get:

In related news, humanity announced that its nearly a century of despoiling the environment was actually just an attempt to recreate a scene from WALL-E. Great job, guys! Just a bit more to go.
