While its garish yellow crocodile skin might not be your upholstery of choice (it was intended to be eye-catching at a recent exhibition), the Zero Gravity recliner is the latest in airplane seating and is one seriously comfy ride. Created by B/E Aerospace, the Zero Gravity seat elevates your knees above your heart to increase circulation flow, reducing the risk of deep vein thrombosis. And the larger angle between your pelvis and back probably makes it more comfortable than even your bed at home. No word yet on which airline will introduce it first, although early-adopting passengers will most certainly have to pony up for a business- or first-class ticket to try it. We like this a whole lot more than industry plans to test "standing seats."
