This concept art for a new type of plane looks and sounds interesting...
Wonder Woman's invisible Jet could be a reality! Airbus is readying a transparent plane for the year 2050, which will include a clear observation deck, body-heat-harvesting passenger seats, and a virtual golf course. Check it out now.
The bionic frame (as Airbus is calling it) you see above was inspired by the lightweight bone structure of a bird. The plane will also have an exterior skin, which can dim the amount of light coming into the plane (depending on the time and location of the jet).
The "body-heat-harvesting" passenger seats sound a little creepy.
If you're on a plane full of supermodels, their combined body heat would likely have a hard time keeping the coffee maker running.
