Is this tangled mass of limbs the future of flight?
Wired's Jordan Golson spotted this horrifying recent patent from Zodiac Seat France. It imagines a future in which the legs and arms of strangers on a connecting flight to Atlanta are constantly grazing one another.
The patent claims good intentions — the idea is to "increase cabin density while also creating seat units that increase the space available at the shoulder and arm area." The seats can be configured in other ways as well, though the most likely arrangement is the space-maximizing configuration seen in the drawing above. [Source]

The only time I felt like getting sick on a plane is when my seat was backwards. Not sure why, but flying with my back to the pilots just made me feel like crap. I hope these never catch on. What happens if a large person needs two seats next to each other? Sounds like a lawsuit to me.
