For Airbus at the Paris Air Show…the future is now!
All this week during the Paris Air Show at Le Bourget, visitors can learn about the future as envisioned by Airbus by watching a 360-degree “surround” half-hour video presentation at the French Air & Space Museum’s planetarium.
Just like the young girl featured in this video, who is seen imagining herself in an ever-evolving future while surrounded by toy globes, Airbus is looking ahead to what the next decades hold for them and what they can do to make them better.
Airbus already builds the A380, which is one of the most efficient aircraft in the skies today – but why stop there? The company foresees a future where the possibilities are endless, such as the utilization of fuel cells and the inclusion of such natural resources as solar power – which can provide on-board electricity for future aircraft.
Also included in the video is Airbus’ exciting new Concept Cabin, with designated zones that allow passengers to conduct a business meeting, play games or simply relax. The cabin also could feature organic seats that adjust to each individual’s body shape, while also being able to clean and repair themselves if damaged.
For a nearer-term view of what’s ahead, Airbus is screening a 3D video presentation of its jetliner aircraft families on the exhibit stand of parent company EADS, using the interior of a futuristic “pod” as a screen (Hall 2A-A253).
