A new seat design from Lloyd Weaver and Burk Daggett of SE Aeronautics shifts dimensions in order to provide flyers with extra legroom, and the design firm is hopeful that the fully adjustable seat could be the future of air travel.
The seat, which uses viscoelastic materials to “sandwich” the flyer’s body, is meant to make long-haul travel more bearable by conforming to passengers’ body dimensions.
“I personally hate to fly,” said the six-feet-tall Daggett. “Today’s 17- to 18-inch seat width doesn’t fit at all so I am forced to sit in an aisle seat and get hit with the carts, or in the window seat and sit slightly twisted to allow my fellow passengers their own seat space.”
