The Null Device
Not your great-grandfather's Zeppelin
The (perennial) next thing: luxury passenger airships
, this time from a bunch of people in London:
It straddles the concepts of a cruise ship and a hotel floating 12,000 feet in the air, with 50 rooms, including a penthouse and four duplex apartments.
"There is a three-level cocktail bar at the bottom of the ship, with a thing that we call a Moon Pool - effectively it's a transparent floor - so on sunset you can sit there with your chums, sip a cocktail and look at the earth passing by underneath you, like [you're] a goddess," Mr Talbot said.
Mind you, the Aircruise is still only a concept, and it is not clear whether anything like it will actually get built. (For one, there would need to be advances in materials to make it possible.)
