Panasonic Avionics’ Next-Gen in-flight Entertainment System
If you are a frequent traveller, then you are going to love this idea. There is a new in-flight entertainment system coming to airline near you that helps those of you unfamiliar with the location you are heading to, plan activities around your destination or layover, and book entertainment and services on the ground before you arrive.
Panasonic Avionics Corporation’s neXperience is a 3D, touch based interactive experience that enables the airline passenger to ‘travel’ between information destinations.
The concept is a winner of the 2009 Mercury Inspiration Award, and was also a bronze winner in the 2010 International Design Excellent Awards sponsored by the IDSA.
Unfortunately, as with everything in life, it looks as if your experience will be filled with advertising and e-commerce, which may end up helping to reduce the cost of air travel, as this would be a new source of revenue for the airlines.
