Airplanes are mainstream. Motherships however, aren’t! This Hyper Shape Plane, as the designer calls it, has a blended wing body design, coupled with solar panels on top that supply power to the plane. I call it a mothership for this exact reason since the plane doesn’t really have wings because the plane itself IS the wing! Armed with stabilizers on the rear and the top to push its performance, the HSP (hyper shape plane) is designed to work towards being a zero emissions plane. Aside from the quantum solar dots on the upper surface of the plane, it harnesses wind power using two double-helix wind turbines, and is also equipped with 2 large hydrogen batteries that supply power to the massive aircraft.
While being used primarily for transporting humans and cargo, the plane is even designed to do its bit for the environment. Located right above the cockpit are two massive ducts that allow for air passage. The air is made to pass through an ionized membrane that captures CO2, removing it from the air and storing it in liquid form to be recycled or disposed of when back on land. That’s a rather ‘high-flying’ conceptual aircraft now, isn’t it??
