'By 2050, Planes Will Have Transparent Walls'

Air passengers of the future could be able to read bedtime stories to their children back home while staring out at sunny or starry skies.



Air passengers of the future could be able to read bedtime stories to their children back home while staring out at sunny or starry skies.

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".


When presenting the concept in London Airbus engineering executive vice-president Charles Champion said: "Our research shows that passengers of 2050 will expect a seamless travel experience while also caring for the environment.
"The concept cabin is designed with that in mind, and shows that the journey can be as much a voyage of discovery as the destination."
