    Balloon lifted farm field irrigation - GIF

    Balloon lifted farm field irrigation. Perhaps not the single most practical GIF I have ever encountered. Nevertheless, a reminder that we will likely look back upon this era of the web with great fondness.

    Except for the price of helium this would be a very economical way to irrigate a field 1 person on each end pulling it along. Might be a little troublesome in my re with our seasonal winds.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    What they are putting on c-phones now seem to be a bain to photography, film, and graphics but you are right the grand kids will likely look back at these with Nostalgic Reverence, as we do with old tin-types and B/W movies and 16mm cameras. Just wish someone would teach them basic framing and lighting...

    As for a sensibility of the tool...looks like fun but cost may be high. They could be automated with a roller feed on this end and an RC weighted car on the on the other end of the stringer...tie the two drives together...ta da.

    Thanks, Jon.
