Future Technology

    Our new technology is a plane seat that comfortably balances and rights the passenger when the plane banks or hits turbulence. It is used to ensure safety and comfort of passengers in a plane.

    Our seat uses the principle of gyroscope technology. If the plane banks too far, the seat will adjust, keeping the passenger sitting parallel to the ground despite the turbulent motion of the plane. Therefore, the passenger's body remains upright and comfortable. Discomfort from turbulence will be avoided and air sickness will be a thing of the past.

    The seat itself will be constructed out of graphene and have polyurethane cushions - also known as memory foam - for comfort. Graphene is 200 times stronger than steel but a million times thinner than a strand of hair.
      The seat will rest on a graphene semi-sphere to balance the chair and allow it to self-adjust as the plane tilts. We chose polyurethane cushions to maximize the comfort of the seat and because it weighs less than other foams. 
     Under the semi-sphere is a chamber filled with propylene glycol to stabilize the steel weight that triggers the weight sensors. 
     Attached to the inside of the chamber are weight sensors to detect when the plane banks too far. When the sensors are deployed, they will send a signal to stop the chair from pivoting any further. The chair will stop by tightening the hold on the semi-sphere.
