Introducing The First Invisible Airbus Airplane

Submitted by on July 10, 2011 – 11:28 amOne Comment

If you are afraid of heights, you may not want to book a flight on the Airbus transparent aircraft that will allow passengers to enjoy panoramic views through translucent cabin walls at 40,000 feet above ground.

According to the newly launched Future Airbus Web site,

“A third of the people that took part in our global Passenger 2050 survey of 10,000 people said 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.”

Scheduled to appear in a airport near you by 2050, you won’t have to be Wonder Woman to experience the wonder of an invisible airplane. According to the leading aircraft manufacturer:

The Concept Cabin doesn’t conform to the traditional cabin classes found in today’s commercial aircraft. First, Business and Economy class are replaced by zones that target more individual needs like relaxing, playing games, interacting with other passengers or holding business meetings with people on the ground. The cabin’s bionic structure and responsive membrane combines panoramic views with an integrated neural network pulsing through it, which can identify and respond to the specific needs of each passenger. And the fittings and furnishings will take care of their own cleaning and repairs thanks to innovations inspired by nature, like dirt repellent coatings and self healing covers.

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.

Listen to a representative from the European Aircraft manufacturer discuss how passengers will be able to change the size and shape of their chair or manipulate the lighting with body heat:
