Default Aircruise – A sustainable way to travel in utmost luxury



Quote:
Eco Factor: Concept airship powered by hydrogen fuel cells and solar energy.

The brainchild of designers at London-based Seymourpowell, the Aircruise is what the future of travel and hospitality might look like. Known as a giant and elegant “Clipper in the Clouds,” the airship harvests solar energy, while its primary source of power is a hydrogen fuel cell drive system.




The Aircruise is a blend between an airship and a hotel, which offers the best in luxury in an eco-conscious manner. The zero-emission concept can cruise at around 90mph, which means a journey from London to New York will take about 37 hours.

Integrating four duplex apartments and five smaller apartments with a penthouse apartment, bar/lounge/communal areas, the Aircruise creates a luxury hotel in the skies. At 30m high, the giant airship features glass floors that offer breathtaking views from the sky.

I'd be interested to see how they're going to use to propel a blimp at 90 mph. Theoretically, it might not be enough to overcome a stiff head wind.

Not just a blimp but one that looks like a building. I'd like to see their engineering on that one. I think it's a cool idea though, I've thought someone should do something like this for a while now.
