Transparent Plane

via dailymail. Yeh… I don’t think this will fly (pun intended). Anyways, Airbus (the makers of the 5 Star plane) recently unveiled this transparent-skinned plane concept in London and are billing it as ‘the plane of 2050’. Would this freak you out?

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.

Most of the basic technology such as moulding seats and ‘head-up displays’ already exist, but how Airbus plan to make the plant-based, transparent ‘skin’ of the plane remains a mystery.
