Airbus building a transparent plane … scary but awesome.

Airbus plans to develop a transparent airplane that will allow passengers to see the sky, clouds, and stars at night, by the year 2050.  The seats will detect passengers’ body temperatures and use that temperature to control airplane systems.   And if you’re bored of sitting around and looking out into the sky, you can stroll down to the ‘Interaction Zone’ and play games such as virtual golf with other passengers on your plane, on other planes, or even on the ground.   How cool is that?  There might be a long line up though, so I don’t know how that would work.  It would be like flying in an alien spaceship.  I hope I’m not too old to fly in one by the time they come out … I’ll be 73 in 2050.  The view would be amazing over the Niagara Falls or the CN Tower, but then the airplane’s floor would have to be see-through as well.
