Airbus have revealed some plans for future airplanes that sound pretty cool and futuristicky.
Firstly, they'll be eco-friendly, made of plant fibres that are "grown into the desired form" and so on. That's quite nifty. Secondly, they'll have private cabins that use holographic technology called "virtual decor", letting you transform it into an office, a bedroom, or a zen garden, for example. And most excitingly the main fuselage will be made from a cool kind of ceramic that at the touch of a button can go see-through, letting you stargaze or look at the Alps or the pyramids right below you.
That sounds awesome. It also sounds terrifying, for someone who is scared of heights. Would you like to be in a plane that is seemingly made of glass, seeing every sharp turn and exactly how high above the sea you are as your head is tucked between your knees and you vomit profusely?
An interesting thing is that they say they already have most of the technology to do this.
I think this sort of technology would be great in future home design, but I don't know if it's such a good idea to have an illogical thing like a plane hurtling through the air made to look even more fragile.
Well, these are the thoughts of most of the commenters that I've read on various articles about this today.
Personally I think it's pretty awesome.
The bad news? "Soon" to them means 2050.
So I'll be... Old. Will I be too old to enjoy it?
Come on, move yer bleedin' arses and let us try it out! NOW!
