Planes Are Going To Be Rad In 2050

The idea of air travel blows us away when we really start thinking about it — but how would you feel if, depending what you wanted, you could experience that awe or ignore it completely?

That's the choice that Airbus wants to give customers (among other, more specific choices), because some the design concepts are based on bird-bone efficiency and include transparent ceilings and walls!

But like we said, if the idea of that and heights kinda freaks you out, then no worries, because there are options for that. Here are a few options in general:

In the cabin concept, new personalised zones replace the traditional cabin classes.

The "vitalising zone" helps passengers relax, with vitamin and antioxidant-enriched air, mood lighting, aromatherapy and acupressure treatments.

In the "interactive zone" there are virtual pop-up projections taking passengers to whichever social scene they want to be in, from holographic gaming to virtual changing rooms for active shoppers.

The "smart tech zone" is tailored towards the more functional-orientated passenger with what Airbus describes as "a chameleon-style offering, to meet individual needs ranging from a simple to a complete luxury service, but all allowing you to continue life as if on the ground".

That vitalizing zone sound pret-ty good to us!

We think that the issue they'll run into here is that the zones could fill quickly, and what if you're someone who is just terrified of the idea of being able to see out of the ceilings and walls that high up, but it was the only option left for your travel time-frame?

Still, it sound really cool, and we hope they can work it all out somehow!

Would U fly in one of these??

    I feel like that's the Titanic of the sky, waiting to happen.



  2. 2

    Are we even alive by then??? HMP!



  3. 3

    We'll be out of fuel by then!!!!



  4. 4

    Perez, you're gonna be in your 70's when this comes out.



  5. 5

    Pretty sure it will be as usual, just for some.



  6. 6

    LOL right. In the 70's,80's,90's everyone thought we would have flying cars..We can't even break out dependence on fossil fuels and get powered by solar and wind.



  7. 7

    And how do they suggest passengers don't BURN from being so high up and close to the sun with a transparent ceiling??

    Ummm.. Ok. Call me a geek… but this kind of looks like something that was built in the video game "Final Fantasy 8"… its shockingly similar

    Oh yeah sure…. with a recession, jobs being outsourced to other countries, religious funamentalists taking over in the political realm, our civil right's being taken away, our education systems being stripped to nothing and all our money going into the pockets of our sleezy politicians and corporate bastards…. Yeah, this country will spend money on something actually productive, something that will help us in the future, something that requires brain power. I DON'T THINK SO!

    What the Fuck EVER, Perez. They can't even afford to give us a sandwich after 20 hours of flying. There's no way anyone but the rich will be able to afford these strange planes where you can watch the Earth come at you if you crash. I can't even imagine how foul vitamin air smells.
