Airbus Concept Cabin A Dreamy Eco Flying Idea (Eco news)

Airbus Concept Cabin A Dreamy Eco Flying Idea
EarthTechling reported

From a sustainability standpoint, flying is typically not the greenest way to travel. Throwing that out the window for the moment, especially when you consider by 2050 we could all be flying around in solar powered airplanes, let’s take a look at the green and green tech inside this cabin in a nutshell. Airbus said this of the eco-factor for its idea: “the concept cabin will be 100% recyclable.  It will have self-cleaning materials made from sustainable plant fibres which reduce waste and maintenance and will harvest passenger body heat to power cabin features.”

Passenger body heat to power cabin features? Given the types of technology this cabin would carry, it is certainly possible it will need all the green energy it can gather to make it work. For example, a “neural network” would let passenger and plane interface, so that it can “identify and respond to passenger needs and enables bespoke features such as morphing seats which change to your body shape.” Creepy? Perhaps.
