How Hard Can it Be?

Have you ever watch an animation movie by Disney Pixar titled ‘Up’? I’m sure you have. It has amazing graphic support by great story. It’s about a 78-year-old Carl Fredricksen who sets out to fulfill his lifelong dream to see the wilds of South America. He tied thousands of balloons to his home to reach the place that his late wife dreamed of. Right after lifting off, however, he learns he isn’t alone on his journey, since Russell, a wilderness explorer 70 years his junior, has become a stowaway on the trip.


            Flying a house with thousands of balloons? I think it’s impossible. Well, it’s only an animation, right? But then my eyes amazed as I seen this American TV Show. An engineer Vin Marshall teams up with mechanical engineer Paul Carson and inventor Eric Gocke, to build an entire house fly with a giant cluster of helium balloons just like in the Pixar film ‘Up’. Will the team successfully recreate one of the most magical moments in film history?

So, how hard can It be? You can do everything you want if you want it!

        yup.. you should check out the link that I give. They did it… the making is not that simple though. It takes a hard work and great men. The result is, they made the replica of the House Flying!
