Have a taste of air travel in 2050
Are you ready to relax in massage seats which serve drinks and provide vitamins? That provide the feel of a sea breeze or scent of fresh pine for a relaxing travel experience?
Come 2050, if passengers prefer panoramic windows, which can become transparent at the wave of a hand or remain opaque in certain areas, it can be done, reported Mail Online.
The solution is an integrated neural network that can detect and respond to the specific needs of each passenger.
This was among the ideas that came up when the leading airbus manufacturer posed a global passenger survey asking travellers what they would expect from a flight in 2050.
It's going to take about 35 years before we get to see the new airbus with four impressive zones but let's see what Airbus has planned:
1. Vitalising Zone
Based on Airbus' perspective that "there will be a significant increase in female travelers as more women will travel for business than we see today", Airbus aims to make a vitalising zone that brings passengers closer to nature, including panoramic views of the world outside and the sound of showers to lull you to sleep.
2. Interaction Zone
Over 3,000 people among the 10,000 people surveyed agreed "that they want the flight itself to feel like a holiday experience and to be able to access all the technological advances which fill their daily lives during the flight."
Airbus plans more bars and spaces where people can interact, from virtual business meetings to playing indoor golf (above), or even more private pop-up pods, for romantic meals.
3. Smart Tech Zone
Morphing seats will adapt to suit passengers' budgets as well as their body, offering different levels of comfort and space.
4. Future Technologies
Airbus hopes to incorporate a range of future technologies, from 3D printing to harvesting energy from body heat.
"Future aircraft could be built using a bionic structure that mimics the bone structure of birds," said the company.
