Talk about the ergonomics of travel ...

"B/E Aerospace today announced that Boeing has selected a version of B/E's lie-flat MiniPod seat that's now available to customers for the business class cabin on the new Boeing 777-200LR Worldliner, the world's longest range passenger jet. In addition, B/E's Flight Structures Integration unit manufactured various interior structures for the aircraft. The 777-200LR, which is being showcased at the Paris Air Show, will display the latest technologies and options available for Boeing aircraft interiors.

Winner of the coveted Chicago Athenaeum Good Design Award, the MiniPod product line offers many unique and customizable amenities and features for the business traveler, including advanced electric systems and controls for infinite adjustability from the upright dining and working positions to the lie-flat bed mode. A patented articulating arm structure moves downward as the seat reclines, providing additional bed width and comfort. The fixed back shell provides greater privacy and personal space, and can be outfitted with additional passenger controls and reading lights. Other features, such as a back massager, laptop power outlet and storage spaces for shoes and other passenger items are also available."   continued ...   (Via Yahoo Finance)
