Lucid Stead by Phillip K Smith III, Joshua Tree, California
Think of a cruise ship. Now think of it floating above the ground at about hot-air balloon height. That is the concept behind the Manned Cloud aircraft, currently being developed by the French national aerospace body and a private design company.
The elegant, whale-shaped airship is intended to accommodate 40 passengers, with an onboard restaurant, library, fitness suite, spa and sundeck at their disposal.With a leisurely cruising speed of 80mph, guests could also simply enjoy watching the landscape roll by beneath them.
