E-Planes Drawing Fuel From Air Friction

Turning Air Friction into Electrical Energy For Electric Planes

Green, Clean Flying
A new electric aircraft concept, named The Eather One, is powered by pure air.  Specifically, stratospheric air friction to create electric energy to fly the plane.  The air friction can be seen in action behind a high flying jet that leaves a plume of white smoke across the sky in its wake.  The plume holds for quite some time because there is very little air circulation in the stratosphere.  When a high speed aircraft cuts through the higher atmosphere, it generates tremendous air friction and vibrations.  Tapping into that tremendous source of energy is the concept behind Eather One that future aircraft may capitalize on.

Electric Flying with Nanogenerators on the Wings
The concept plane is equipped with triboelectric nanogenerators on its wings and across the top of the aircraft. The  nanogenerators capture the turbulent air friction and convert it into electrical energy that the plane stores in a battery and uses in flight.  The big potential of this concept airplane is that it harnesses clean, green energy while in flight instead of spewing high octane jet fuel emissions into the atmosphere.

Futuristic Air Travel
The designer of the next generation aircraft is aerospace designer Michael Borikowski.  His Eather One is a conceptual plane that could be a big part of futuristic air travel that's much more efficient and far less polluting.  It may be the look of the future of green flying.
