Based on an airship platform, the “Aether” cruise experience by UK-based designer Mac Byers allows guests to experience a wider range of destinations in a shorter time, all the while enjoying some of the greatest views imaginable. The exterior of the vehicle is conceived to look unlike any airship ever produced – removing notions of danger, like the hindenburg disaster in 1937 . The concept visually communicates a new generation airship that is not only safe but clean, influenced by the thunderbird 2, star wars and the NASA space shuttle. Drawing reference from suspension bridge cables, the lobby integrates structural cords for details like stairways and tables. The interior space has been designed to be as open as possible – encouraging social interaction and providing a communal gathering place for users to meet.
Just saw the video on “Techzone” on Youtube this morning. Was hoping it was recent. But now that I see that it is from 2013. It means no one has shown interest in taking it beyond a pretty concept. Too bad.
je voudrais bien savoir le prix de ce magnifique engin. Merci d’avance
Really a great design, forward thinking and future orientated, but I am afraid that during forward flight the whole ship will get a little bit in trouble in its stability around its longitudinal and lateral axis.
We have built two ships in as similar shape. As soon as wind or cross wind comes into account it will be hard to control.
I wish your idea would be realized in the future
