Airbus designs biomimetic airplane for the year 2050

June 15, 2011

Airbus visionaries have conceived the plane of the year 2050, with a transparent ceiling and morphing seats that maximize passenger comfort. Airbus is releasing images of its vision of the future in preparation for the upcoming Paris Air Show June 20.

The aircraft’s bionic structure mimics the efficiency of bird bone, which is optimized to provide strength where needed, and allows for an intelligent cabin wall membrane that controls air temperature and can become transparent to give passengers open panoramic views.

The Concept Cabin has an integrated “neural network,” creating an intelligent interface between passenger and plane. It can identify and respond to passenger needs and enables features such as morphing seats that change to your body shape.

New personalized zones replace the traditional cabin classes in the Airbus Concept Cabin to offer new tailored levels of experience. The “vitalising zone” is all about wellbeing and relaxation, allowing you to proactively recharge your batteries with vitamin and antioxidant enriched air, mood lighting, aromatherapy and acupressure treatments while taking in the view of the world around you.

In the “interactive zone,” virtual popup projections can transform into whichever social scene you want to be in, from holographic gaming to virtual changing rooms for active shoppers.
