Airplanes as observatories. 
the author of this project is  Michael Luegering. 


Research and technologies applied to flight systems eventually find their way into the cabin - case and point the flat pannel monitor, or the airphone. The Heads-Up Display (HUD) presents a key oportunity for using the existing window structure as the base point for observation and interaction with the clouds outside the window.  As a transparent projection, it allows the viewer to observe both data and the wold to which it is being projected. taxonomy / research 
 
It was vital to explore the variety of experiences the HUD and cloud types provide 
through the framed view of an airplane window.   There seems to be an infinite number of striking experience that come with the observation of the environment out the window of a plane.  These experience can be enhanced through the intentional activation of an otherwise impasse or forgot- ten assets of the plane - the window. 

First class seating options include rotating and locking FAA approved seats which allow the most refined and sophisticated user a level of unparralleled viewing enjoyment.
