It looks like the two executives are suspended in a room without gravity, but it’s actually a little less impressive. The room was created as a way for people to take photos that just look like they’ve been taken in space. According to this Quora post, what appears to be the left wall, where Systrom is posing, is actually the floor, and the desk, computer, and chair are drilled into a wall on the right.
The “Gravity Room,” has its own Facebook page where Instagrammers have posted a handful of creative photos that make viewers do a double-take.
While this room is just a clever way for people to trick their friends into thinking gravity has been stripped away, it’s not entirely outside the realm of possibility to think that Facebook would install an actual anti-gravity playroom. Considering the incredible perks startups get these days, a room to float around in doesn’t sound too far-fetched.
We flipped the photo so you can see what the room actually looks like—just two executives goofing off in a room with plenty of gravity.
