For those afraid of heights, climbing a skyscraper can seem like a daunting endeavor. Although there are many tall buildings in the world, there is one that stands above the rest. At 2,722 feet, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai is currently the tallest building in the world. Artist André Larsen shows people what it would be like to fall from this extraordinary height. Originally from Norway but now based in Dubai, Larsen piloted the drone near the ground from the top of the Burj Khalifa. Watching the video is a surreal experience that makes you feel as if you are on your way down this impressive skyscraper. There are 163 tracks in total, and Larsen lands the drone as close to most of them as possible. It's like being on a roller coaster. As the drone flies past the building, you can also glimpse Dubai's incredible cityscape, including the aqueduct and many other amazing buildings. Larsen then corrects the drone's direction so that it glides over the nearby environment - completing the spectacular ride. Scroll down to see the full video and be sure to follow Larsen on Instagram and follow his YouTube to keep up with his latest projects.
