For those of you out there who love getting the window seat when traveling on airplanes, you're in luck! Come 2050, Airbus plans to create planes that offer a panoramic view that nearly all passengers will enjoy. But, the plane will do much more than simply offer excellent scenery. The Daily Mail has more:
First, business and economy cabins are replaced by zones for relaxation in the front, work in the back, and a fully-stocked bar for socialising.
Passengers will be able to see everything to the sides and in front of them. So blindfolds might be handy come take-off and landing time.
The aircraft's walls change according to light conditions. There are holographic pop-up gaming displays and in-flight entertainment powered by the heat of passengers' bodies.
The technology could mean travellers might even be able to read bedtime stories to their children back home
There will be an "interactive zone," with super-cool holographic gaming, shopping and plenty more. The plane will even include "luxury services," shape-shifting seats and plenty more. Oh, and did we mention that the aircraft will also allegedly be more green?
While the majority of the technologies needed to recognize these goals already exist, Mail Online points out the fact that transparency has not yet been mastered.
Reuters has a video that explains these planned aircrafts (watch below):
