Emirates sheds light on Expo 2020 pavilion plans
The pavilion will highlight the future of air travel and will include holograms
Scheduled to open next year in time for the Expo, the pavilion at the time of writing has completed steel framing.
Once completed, it will showcase the expected future of commercial aviation in 2071.
A personalised journey
Guests entering the pavilion will be given a 'seed'. This seed will act as a device to communicate to all of the experiences in the pavilion.
The science of flight
Holographic installations of futuristic aircrafts will be organised. The animations, Emirates explained, will show the properties of lift, thrust, gravity and drag.
The Cleaner Skies installation will be an experience highlighting the mission of sustainability in connection to the aviation industry. The experience will offer visitors to take a quiz on green technology and developments against climate change.
The future lab will demonstrate a range of new technologies. These will include robotic arms, 4D printing, biometric technology and self-healing materials.
Design your own aircraft
Through what Emirates calls “an ultra-haptic interface”, visitors will be able to build their own craft and run it through a flight simulator. Customisations shall include engine types, wings and liveries.
Airport of the future
The pavilion shall visualise the future of airports, including innovations in security, baggage handling, smart technology and biometrics.
