Zero-Emission Eunoia Airship Takes to the Skies
Posted By Evelyn Lee On July 22, 2010 @ 1:57 pm In Green Transportation,Solar Power | No Comments
We recently fell in love with designer Thomas Tzortzi ‘s Eunoia  project – a zero emission update on the classic zeppelin . Outfitted with an array of solar panels and lifted from the earth using helium, the Eunoia  can launch into the skies without need for a runway. The initial prototype is only designed for eight individuals, but as technology keeps evolving Tzortzi  believes it will be able to hold up to 60 people at a time.
Tzorti’s zeppelin will be made from reclaimed materials whenever possible, making the Eunoia  one of the most eco-friendly forms of alternative transportation available. In addition to passenger seating, the gondola of this futuristic blimp  also includes a sun-deck and a viewing room. Eunoia  doesn’t have its sights set on breaking any speed records in the near future — it is content with being a cruise ship of the skies, flying slowly from country to country while picking up and dropping off passengers along the way.
