In 2050, the aircraft will be intelligent and transparent walls

While American Airlines tries to introduce a bit of 21st century technology for passengers on their planes with Galaxy Tabs 10.1 , Airbus today introduced a concept that goes "a little" beyond. The aircraft manufacturer announced today a project and provides for its aircraft in 2050 and, starting with its transparent walls (!), It seems crazy and futuristic too much for us, economy class travelers accustomed to television screens 10cm acrylic.

The structure of "smart" aircraft in 2050 has taken the inspiration of the skeletons of birds, designed to address long flights at high altitudes, and is made of glass and a bionic membrane can regulate light and temperature inside the cabin - as they claim do this, nobody knows (perhaps even themselves). Thus, the passenger gets a lush panoramic view outside the aircraft that will probably despair still more who are afraid of flying (maybe it's a good idea to get an eye protection for takeoff and landing).

But not only is it a plane with glass walls. Airbus intends to make the airlines forget the concepts low cost airlines have been using it for air travel in recent times to abolish the concept of class. Instead, the cabin would be divided into three areas: the front, the relaxation zone, with entertainment systems and holographic games, seat massagers that fit the body of the passenger, air-conditioning vitamins and aromatherapy. In the middle, an area of fun and socializing, with a bar and a mini-golf holographic. On the back, the work area, which allows executives to not interrupt the productivity duty during the shift to internet system modules for assembly spaces and noise reduction.

On 2050 the aircraft will invariably also be greatly concerned about environmental issues. No, they have not yet had the temerity to suggest a plane powered by electricity, but this concept body heat would be captured by the passenger seats and comvertido energy feeding systems for lighting and air conditioning the cabin. By employing much lighter materials in its construction, the aircraft also spend a lot less fuel to be able to fly at higher altitudes and at greater speed than the pressurization become a simpler process.

OK, all very beautiful, but pardon the pun, I think Airbus is "traveling" with this concept. Unless one of these aircraft arrived in 2050 with a lower cost than the current ones, the chances of it appears there is very small in view of the policy of "maximum profit, minimum comfort" of the world's airlines - and if by chance they come to become a reality, certainly the cost of tickets to fly a plane will make these unique passenger as Bill Gates, Carlos Slim and Eike Batista. In the end, it seems only a few more of those predictions of the future (or current present) that Walt Disney put in its theme parks ... in 70 years.
