Anyone who has spent half a day on a trans-oceanic flight knows how infuriatingly cramped an economy cabin airplane seat can be. Enter the AirGo airplane seat; a conceptual design from Alireza Yaghoubi, a Malaysian student who just won the James Dyson design award for his creation.
The ingenious designs transplants the ubiquitous seat-mounted screens to the ceiling, meaning you won`t have your face smushed in while trying to watch a heavily edited movie on the plane. The seats are made out of comfortable mesh and include an actual foot rest. Thanks to the design and angle of the backrest, the seat behind never comes in contact with the seat or passenger in the seat behind, even while fully reclined.
The new seats only require 16 percent more space than the awful airplane seats many know and detest. Hopefully, these bad boys are seen in airplanes everywhere sooner rather than later.
