Airbus has exciting plans in the works for a transparent commercial passenger aircraft. The nearly invisible aircraft will reportedly run on body warmth. First class seating will even be unseen to the place of non-existence. Article source - Airbus introduces transparent plane powered by body heat by Newsytype.com.
All about Champion
The head of engineering at Airbus, Charles Champion, was able to speak with the Telegraph. He said that there will be a power plant fueled by body warmth, a see-through fuselage and no first class seating in the invisible concept plane at the company. The aircraft will be separated into two zones, the first being the SmartTech area where ergonomic comfort will be unprecedented for an array of passenger shapes and sizes. There will be intelligent seats in the other area called the Vitalizing/Relaxing Zone. The physical needs of passengers will be sensed because of the seats.
Try a comfortable seat in this aircraft
Passengers at Airbus will be able to experience avian air travel. There will be a transparent biopolymer membrane around the passengers. The passengers will feel like they are a bird in air. The SmartTech seats cradle passengers with care.
The best part of the Airbus jet will be the power source. It is revolutionary.
"The heat of your body can be used to power the aircraft," said Champion.
It has not been made known if the body heat will really power the engines in the plane. It may just power the lights or something similar. Passengers may end up having difficulties if they do not have enough heat in them.
Survey used to decide concept
The Airbus corporate website had a survey on it where the concept designs came from. According to the survey findings:
"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."
With the Airbus Concept Cabin, this could be achieved. This will be the experience wanted. The clear biopolymer will allegedly be plant-based, according to Champion.
