Travel Video Trends This Week: The Rise of Vertical Video and Our Fascination with Drones Sponsored This content is created collaboratively with one of our sponsors.
Although lasers that stream music into our ears, technology that pauses a movie when we look at a flight attendant, and fast Wi-Fi sound great, a little more room and tastier snacks might be just as good.
There are several technologies currently being developed to take in-flight entertainment and the flying experience to new heights.
Thales, a key player in the on-board entertainment solutions space, for instance, is working on embedding gesture control and eye tracking technology into in-flight entertainment systems.
With the gesture control technology, passengers would no longer need to use a controller to interact with the screen. Meanwhile, with eye tracking technology passengers would no longer need to hit the pause button on a movie before interacting with an air stewardess.
