Ever wish you could just tune the rest of the plane out?
Airbus just filed a patent for a product that could do just that.
Airbus says it’s designed to give air passengers of the future a sensory-deprivation environment where they can fully immerse themselves in the in-flight entertainment and tune out the unpleasantness of air travel: air raging passengers, crying babies, and the loud drunks in row 23.
In its detailed patent application, Airbus says it envisions airplane seats with high-tech headrests equipped with helmets. Each headrest/helmet combo would come with a built-in video screen, movable glasses and earphones that a passenger could use to watch movies, play video games and listen to music. The design even allows for “olfactory” isolation — meaning you’d get your choice of relaxing smells to enhance your flying experience.
Here’s the sexy design:
What I want to know is–can I set it to “wine”?
