The National Geographic Channel created a real version of the floating house in the animated film Up. Using balloons, they were able to launch a house thousands of meters into the air.

Guided by a team of scientists, engineers, and two world-class balloon pilots they were able to successfully launch a 16' X 16' house 18' tall with 8' coloured weather balloons from a private airfield east of Los Angeles, and set a new world record for the largest balloon cluster flight ever attempted.

I can't sleep, so here is a video if you can't either: It is about a Seed, because I am one! :) Original can be viewed at The Seed on Vimeo.
