Apparently this is in Berkeley.
This concept plane by Airbus would make flying fun again while making it environmentally friendly. Its unusual structure was inspired by its companions in the sky.
Future aircraft could be built using a bionic structure that mimics the bone structure of birds. Bone is both light and strong because its porous interior carries tension only where necessary, leaving space elsewhere. By using bionic structures, the fuselage has the strength it needs, but can also make the most of extra space where required. This not only reduces the aircraft’s weight and fuel burn, but also makes it possible to add features like oversized doors for easier boarding and panoramic windows.
In addition to the improved body of the plane, there would be outfitted with cutting edge technology to entertain passengers and to improve energy efficiency.
Warning: Watching this video will make you even more dissatisfied with the current state of air travel:
I found this picture actually kind of funny. The illustrator used humor and sarcasm in the picture to show the future for the next generation. What will be left for them? That is a question I ask myself. I laugh because its crazy how the world will change, all because of how we as a society act upon nature. However, the sad truth of the matter is some people will never actually care about saving the world.
