The "UP" House created for REAL.

The "UP" House
The National Geographic channel produced a real-life version of the Balloon House in the animated film "Up." Two world-class balloon pilots along with several scientisis and engineers successfully launched this 16'x16' house with 18 feet of weathered balloons from an airfield near LA. The house, carried by 300 of the helium colored balloons, reached an altitude of 3,000 meters and remained in the air for just under an hour. Wish I was there.
