The conceptual 'Eather One' airplane is a futuristic air travel solution that would harness an unlikely power source to make flying more efficient. Designed by Michal Bonikowski, the airplane would fly like a traditional plane, but would be fitted with triboelectric nanogenerators on the top as well as the wings to help harness external mechanical energy. This could then be transformed into electrical energy and turn the drag created against the body of the plane into a power source for an ultra-efficient functionality.
The conceptual 'Eather One' airplane identifies a futuristic solution to the problem of how to make air travel more efficient and less polluting as it increases in popularity on a global scale.
