Pumped Up

This is quite possibly one of the coolest things that we have ever seen. Inspired by the movie Up, a group of our new personal heroes at National Geographic have created a flying house propelled by balloons. The 16 by 16 foot house is carried by 300 helium filled weather balloons and flew for about an hour. A-ma-zing. The project is part of a new series entitled How Hard Can It Be?, premiering this Fall.

The last few times we encountered National Geographic during a routine channel surf, our viewing options included Cannibal Hippos and My Child Is A Monkey. While neither of those instant classics made it to our DVR, we're curious to see what other ventures they have in store.
