Real Life Up!

Some intrepid volunteers and engineers joined two balloon pilots to try to recreate the now iconic flying yellow house from the Pixar film Up. With 300 eight foot weather balloons (brightly colored, of course!), they sent the tiny house 10,000 feet into the air, flying for about an hour.

Check out all the photos here.  (HT: Hepburn)
