After taking one too many uncomfortable eight-hour flights, Malaysia-based engineering student Alireza Yaghoubi, created the perfect airline seat, which we hope, will eventually become the airline seat of the future.
Yaghoubi's AirGo airline seats are a low-cost, ergonomic approach to economy class cabin design, Opposing Views noted. The creation of this alternative airline seating is the first one to be proposed since the 1960's, the last time Today's reclining seat models were upgraded.
While the current seating model leaves little space in between passengers from all sides, AirGo seats would solve the issue by providing independent space for all the chairs at the small expense of being 16 percent larger than current stalls.
And while Yaghoubi accepts more room per seat means less seats, he even came up with a way in which airlines could make up for the losses through "extras."
Yaghoubi got the idea for AirGo chairs after several unpleasant eight-hour flights he took to visit his family, ABC reported. Fortunately, he was able to see the silver lining and created an affordable and comfortable solution to his problem.
Last year, Yaghoubi won the Malaysian national James Dyson Award, an annual design award run by the British inventor's foundation, for his groundbreaking idea.
