    You can tell its just a demo though, I did not see that plane catastrophicly nose dive once thanks to bad programming or have it shred its own engines, those features must still be in the initail planning phase

    You know when your on a aircraft and the light shines really bright through the window. So you close the shades. I wonder how it will work with this?

    In the second video [above] it is implied that there will be gesture responsive technology that will darken the transparent skin of the plane if required.

    I took a bit of ribbing last night on twitter about my wearing of shades. At one conference where I was speaking I had been sat at a table with my shades in front of me, next to my MBP. As I got up to speak I picked them up and put them on the top of my head ... just because it is an automatic thing. So yes ... I am so cool I even have my shades on indoors ... even if it is just on top of my head!

    Another plane of the future slated to appear in 2050:

    Link: Supersonic rocket plane ZEHST plans unveiled | Uses eco-friendly biofuel | To Fly from Paris to Tokyo in 2.5 hours

    ...EADS, the European Aerospace giant, revealed its plans for a biofuel powered supersonic ‘rocket-plane’ that will take passengers from Paris to Tokyo (air distance of more than 12,000 miles or 19,500 km) in a mere 2.5 hours...

    Going on holiday to Australia would be a lot easier / faster if that happened. Not sure on costs though - prolly very expensive for the first 5 to 10 years, sigh
