Fighting over the window seat could be a thing of the past with Airbus’ latest aircraft concept. The Transparent Plane not only plans to open our eyes to interactive air travel, but will also allow passengers to explore the sky as they travel.
The aircraft manufacturer unveiled its futuristic concept recently in London, predicting that its design of a see-through plane could become a reality by 2050.
Passengers of the future will be able discover the world from the comfort of their seats. These seats have also been built to adjust to the body shape of the passenger and guarantee to provide complete comfort and relaxation, despite the length of your flight.
The most fascinating aspect of the aircraft is the transparent exterior that will provide a window to the world.
The plane will be encased in a wall membrane which will have power over the air temperature and also react to the available light conditions, turning transparent when needed.
Inside the plane, passengers can enjoy an array of entertainment including interactive games which run on the heat generated by a passenger’s body. It will also provide much needed relief and distraction to nervous flyers.
The Transparent Plane will be divided into sections to provide intellectual stimulation for passengers during their flight. The “Vitalising Zone” will contain aromatherapy, acupuncture, mood lighting, as well as vitamin and oxidant rich air that will instantly calm.
There is also the “Smart Tech Zone” which will provide a range of luxury services, subject to the needs of the passenger.
The “Interactive Zone” will probably be the easiest and most entertaining way to pass the time during your flight. Using virtual projections, passengers are able to shop whilst on the plane and also take part in holographic gaming – including a virtual game of golf.
Airbus have also taken the environment into consideration as they aim to cut down on the waste, noise, emissions and excessive fuel burn that most planes produce during flight.
