flying house

National Geographic flies a small version of the UP! house across a California desert by attaching 300 weather balloons 8 ft in diameter and filled with 1 tank of helium each.  The house flew up to 10,000ft in the air with 2 pilots.  Pretty awesome.

Thanks moi for sending me the find!
