Airbus And Their Jet Lag Zapper

Maybe this is the cause of the A380 electrical issues. Of course, it's not over until the fat lady sings flys.

The company's German division is considering aircraft seats with magnetic coils built into the back and the foot rests. These coils would be fed pulsed power, at a frequency between 10 hertz and 20 Hz, for 10 minutes at a time.

Can this be good for a pacemaker?

Why not just use live wires? A good electrical zap wakes me up.  eek

The concept sounds great! Unfortunately...

Quoting Clickhappy (Thread starter):
seats with magnetic coils built into the back and the foot rests.

I can just see someone getting up and leaving their laptop on the seat while they go to the head, coming back and trying to open up a document on the laptop and...."What the #@$%???!!!!!"
