Games areas, panoramic windows and seats that harvest body heat to power the cabin: Airbus reveals what flying will be like in 2050 (fingers crossed!) The planes of the future will have zones dedicated to relaxing and playing games, panoramic windows and seats that collect our body heat to power in-cabin features, according to Airbus. Predicting what travel will be like in 2050, the plane manufacturer said passengers will be able to relax in massage seats that also serve drinks and vitamins as needed and provide either a sea breeze or a scent of fresh pine. And sound showers will ease passengers into the perfect sleep, snug in the warm embrace of special shades to keep out the light. For those who prefer a view, the plane will be made up of panoramic windows, which can become transparent at the wave or a hand or remain opaque in certain areas thanks to an integrated neural network which can detect and respond to the specific needs of each passenger. The cabin's bionic structure will be based on the bone structure of a bird to keep it light but strong. It would then be coated with a biopolymer membrane, which controls the amount of natural light, humidity and temperature, providing opacity or transparency on command and eliminating the need for windows.
