Flying luggage? You might see this at airports soon

You’ve got to love humanity for always pushing the envelope on creativity. A team of design students from Brazil recently swept the top awards at a UNESCO-supported aviation competition for their innovative concept of introducing buoyancy to luggage at airports — in other words, floating all that baggage in the air.

The idea rides on the principles of air hockey, with the cargo hold retro-fitted with super-light sliding sections to enable workers to load and unload luggage swiftly and safely. If they can sort this out, surely it’s worth looking at transporting slow-moving passengers in the same way too?
