Flying can be a stressful event for people. Other than the chance of you dying in a fiery ball of death in the sky, you’ve got to deal with suspicious pricing, TSA bullshit, annoying baggage policies, and other irritating things. If a new patent comes to fruition on airplanes, things might get a little hairier. Zodiac Seats France created the seating arrangement shown above, where the hexagonal design fits more people on the plane, while giving passengers more shoulder and arm space. I do like the idea of the latter, but now you have to deal with the possibility of making weird eye contact with randos on the plane. There’s also the possibility of this freakish configuration, which makes me sweat in terror just thinking about it. Fortunately, it’s in the early stages of development and may never become a real thing. But if it does pass muster, I’ll be wearing these bad boys on my next flight.
