Airbus unveils 'transparent' plane

Aeronautics giant Airbus provided a glimpse of how air travel would change into a fun journey by 2050, presenting its intelligent cabin concept in London.

The presentation showed how “intelligent” cabin would respond to the needs and requirements of passengers and allow seats to fit passengers’ body shapes.

Air travellers in 2050 might be able to read bedtime stories to their children back home, Airbus said.

The company also said that mid-century passengers might be able to enjoy a game of virtual golf or take part in interactive conferences.

The cabin of the future comes close on heel of last year's unveiling of the Airbus concept plane, packed with technologies to reduce fuel burn, emissions, waste and noise.

With the aircraft’s bionic structure designed to mimic the efficiency of bird bone, the flying machine would be able to optimise strength wherever needed. The bird bone structure would also help in temperature control as well as providing panoramic views to passengers by turning the smart wall membrane transparent.

In the cabin concept, the traditional cabin classes would be replaced by new personalised zones.
