Aircraft and defense contractor Thales has shown off what it says is an "Immersive Business Class Seat" that uses an NFC connection to preset seating preferences in a smartphone.
A passenger could use the seat on one plane and adjust it to their preferences, then store those on their smartphone via the NFC connection, and download them again when boarding a different airline later.
The seat was developed in conjunction with BE Aerospace and design partners BMW Design Works.
