The Future Of Gaming At 35,000 Feet

The Future Of Gaming At 35,000 Feet

The future of airborne gaming may include a full-sized monitor, surround sound and plenty of legroom, if you’ve got the cash to drop on a plush, “Not For Wimps” airline seat.

The seat, designed by Contour Aerospace and Factorydesign, is among the future design concepts being shown off at the Aircraft Interiors Expo at the Hamburg Messe in Germany this week.

The Not For Wimps prototype, designed specifically for in-flight gaming, includes speakers integrated into the top edges of the seat, the ability to create a bubble of active noise cancellation around the gamer and a large monitor suspended in front of each seat by a Kevlar-coated carbon fibre arm.

Other concepts being shown off at the week’s show include a seat with a built in iPad, another with a built-in Playstation Portable and a beverage trolley designed to dispense a multitude of drinks with the push of a single button.

Oy! I want one of those drinkie things too for my seat.
