It sounds futuristic: 5000 passengers should have space in “Sky Cruise” – and be able to stay in the air for several years. The flying hotel is controlled by artificial intelligence. Pilots are not required. The 20 electric motors are powered by clean fusion energy, in short: there are no CO2 emissions.
It was all dreamed up by animation artist Hashem Al-Ghaili and designer Tony Holmsten. Fun and entertainment is also provided in their airship. There are numerous bars and restaurants in the hotel, as well as pools, cinemas and theaters. There is also a gigantic glass dome and a viewing platform.
The futuristic flying object is met with astonishment – and ridicule. Some are reminded of the Hindenburg airship that crashed in New York in 1937 and the Titanic that sank in 1912.
