Airship Hotel: Lighter than air, but is still a heavy concept
by Mark R
I always wanted to see a world that we dreamed of before the airplane was invented. A world where airships fill the skies like artificial clouds, and we can live on them as long as we fill them with helium.
We’ve reported about similar concepts before with this self-sustaining blimps, the Aircruise, and the Boeing Skyhook. Yeah, I don’t think that this design, known as Airship Traveling, will ever come to pass unless some rich guy just really wants it. Man, does that say something about technological innovation, or what?
The Airship hotel apparently can stay aloft thanks to the power of the sun. I don’t know how that can be, honestly. I mean, how can solar power keep something aloft that is lighter than air? Considering how solar power is pretty inefficient these days, I wonder how it can somehow make helium. Oh man, it better not be using hydrogen. “Does the Hindenburg ring any bells?”
Still, you have to admire this Airship hotel, just for sheer dream value alone. You will note that the artist decided to put this Airship hotel hovering over what looks like Arizona. I guess that would be quite breathtaking view. By the way, how do the guests check into the Airship hotel, with a helicopter?
