A Yemeni science communicator and video producer recently unveiled his design for an AI-piloted “flying hotel” that can fly for months with nearly 5,000 passengers on board.
Hashem Al Ghaili, whose work has piqued the interest of science news outlets as well as social media users, explained that this nuclear-powered Sky Cruise with 20 engines is built to never land.
This futuristic hybrid of a plane and a luxury hotel includes a gym and a swimming pool. Al Ghaili also stated that the monster aircraft is designed to operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
He described the incredible interior of the hotel in a CGI video and stated that the plane will be ‘fully autonomous.’ “All this technology, and you still want pilots?” he asked, according to the Daily Star.
There will, however, be plenty of hotel personnel on board. According to the video titled ‘Sky Cruise: A Futuristic Hotel Above the Clouds,’ the plane includes restaurants, a gym, a theatre, a swimming pool, and a massive shopping mall.
The Sky Cruise, which is also described as a perfect wedding venue, has a panoramic hall with a stunning 360-degree view of the clouds.
However, many users are sceptical of Al-concept, Ghaili’s referring to it as the “new Titanic.” The YouTube comment section was flooded with users pointing out the flaws of the monster aircraft.
“Great idea putting a nuclear reactor in something that could malfunction and fall out of the sky,” one user wrote, correctly pointing out that the nuclear-powered plane could cause serious damage if it crashed.
Aside from the massive development costs, users were also concerned about the design of the 20 engines.
“Those open elevators are a no-go for me. Uneven drag would also like to be addressed. The engines appear to be jet engines, fusion reaction is used as a magical future energy source, and your animation never raised the landing gear “another user stated
Some people also pointed out that only the “rich” could afford a plane ticket.
“While this is an interesting concept that can be built with current technology, this thing would be super expensive and no doubt only the wealthy would be able to book this hotel,” one user commented.
However, there were a few who were ecstatic at the prospect of such an idea becoming a reality.
“I’m sure I’ll end up sitting next to someone else’s screaming three-year-old for the duration of the trip,” one user wrote.
