This is the EcoLogic Aircraft, and it looks like it’s something right out of a SciFi movie. It was designed by Daphnis Fournier who wanted to make a completely energy efficient and independent machine. The top is full of air, and the roof in covered in Photovoltaics in order to turn the sun’s radiation directly into energy. It is said that these beasts will carry over 300 passengers, but I’m more interested in hearing what the top speed will be. If they want to replace air travel with this, they better make them have an insane top end.
