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

    Instagram takes to the sky.

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

    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.

    The team attached 100 helium balloons to the house and released it over Paris.

    The Instagram device took shots every 45 seconds.

    And the results are breathtaking.

    Watch a video about the project below:
