Airbus has taken the best ideas from the gaming industry, film, and its own software engineers to transform interior cabin design creation. Creating a unique cabin look is one of the most important features for an airline as it helps it distinguish it from another brand. In the old days coming up with a new look took time and a lot of second guessing. Thanks to this power-wall at the Airbus Innovation Centre in Hamburg – the whole process is revolutionized.
