A Group Of Parisian Hackers Made "Up" A Reality Using Instagram

Instagram takes to the sky.

1. A few weeks ago, a group of Parisian hackers took Instagram to the skies, in the little house from Up.


2. Using a Raspberry Pi computer, they bypassed the need for a smartphone - meaning they could post directly to Instagram.


The Raspberry Pi is a small single-board and open sourced computer, which contains a camera and a 3G hotspot.

4. The Instagram device took shots every 45 seconds.

5. And the results are breathtaking.
