A Real Live Flying House!
Two engineers were so taken by the scene from “Up” where the house takes flight that they tried to recreate it for a new National Geographic series “How Hard Can It Be?” The answer is that it was very hard, but possible. After inflating many, many giant balloons, the miniature yellow house did lift off. Someday, I plan to travel by flying house like Carl did, so it’s good to know it’s possible. [The Daily What]
