Through The Daily Beast and written up on The Daily Mail: Airbus is planning on making airplanes with windows everywhere, giving flyers panoramic views of the sky. Imaging flying on one of these on a cloudless night, or in the northern latitudes for the northern lights? Just a future dream for now, but I’m sure we’ll get the first steps towards this soon. Space Ship One?
Ever wanted a panoramic view while on a plane? Airbus unveiled plans for a transparent plane, set to debut sometime around 2050, that would allow passengers to have a panoramic view while in the sky. “Our research shows that the passengers of 2050 will expect a seamless travel experience while also caring for the environment,” said executive vice-president Charles Champion. First-class and business class no longer exists, instead there are areas for relaxation in the front, work in the back as well as a full-stocked bar in the middle. There is also an “interactive zone” which features holographic gaming and virtual shopping. The aircraft’s walls will change according to light conditions as well as in-flight entertainment powered by the heat in people’s bodies.
