Spectrum of aircraft design concepts; (from left to right) conventional airliner, blended wing body, hybrid flying wing and true flying wing. Note that this does not represent either a chronological or technological order. The Boeing 757 (far left) is a modern, highly advanced aircraft, the Boeing X-48 (2nd image) is the most recently developed, while the Northrop YB-49 (far right) actually predates all other depicted aircraft.

Dzyne Technologies’ regional jet-sized blended wing body concept.

Takes Next Step in Green Aviation X-planes Plans

Dzyne Technologies’ regional jet-sized blended wing body concept.

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. 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.
