The animation from Pixar studios, ‘UP’ gave the team at Hackerloop the inspiration to create something amazing. What they did was to replicate the house in the animation and use the idea of a floating house to take spectacular shots from the sky. They term this project ‘UPSTAGRAM’. Ingenious indeed. The team fiddled with Instagram’s API and created a software which established the bridge to transfer photographs on to Instagram without exactly using a smartphone. What they did was to create the software on an open source micro computer known as Raspberry Pi and fix this system on to the house. The house floats on 80 small helium balloons and it launches off in a very epic scene just like the on in ‘UP’. Nice idea there!
