The Real 'Up' House

No, your monitor isn't broken. The image to the left is accurate and real--a team at National Geographic created Carl Fredricksen's house and tied 300 helium-filled weather balloons to it!! Although the house wasn't actual size, it was still fairly large at 16 by 16 feet, and flew at an altitude of 10,000 feet for over an hour.

This is quite possibly the coolest thing I've ever seen.

This was done for a new National Geographic TV series, How Hard Can it Be?

Check out Gizmodo for some more info and pictures.
