Airbus recently won a Crystal Cabin Award for 2020 with its "AirSpace Cabin Vision 2030". What can we learn from the future of aviation with regards to intelligent places?
Configurability: The new cabin space allows for people traveling in groups or families to arrange their seating to face each
Dynamic Spaces: Using surround screens spaces can change from Bar Club to Exercise room to you name it
Artificial Outside Views: The ability to bring the outside in, even if it's not possible, through digital "glass"
Many of these features are far out, but... some of them actually make quite a bit of practical sense for our everyday environments and changing needs. Planes and ships often give us a window into how spaces can be used without wasting an inch -- and how the same space can be used in multiple ways.
