Nike Concept Plane Cabin For Pro Athletes

Jan 28, 2019

Category: Rides

You know who needs a cushier ride from city to city? Pro athletes. OK, maybe not, but Nike isn’t going to spend money on a private jet concept for Joe 6-pack; they’re going to invest in their moneymakers.

The stats say athletes who cross more than three time zones end up with a 60 percent chance of losing their games, so Nike and Seattle-based design firm Teague have teamed up to create this sensational and sci-fi-like concept cabin for a hypothetical NBA team. The plane features specialized zones for sitting, sleeping, socializing, recovery, and nutrition. Wearable sensors embedded into the players’ clothing can collect data on their physiology and send the info to on-board computers. No overhead bins means 7-footers won’t need to duck, and there’s self-serve meal zones for the hungry point guard who’s tired of dishing out to other people.
