An Android-Powered Tray Table Will Liven Up Air Travel

There’s been a lot of in-flight entertainment news lately, everything from like streaming content to bigger screens for your finger tapping pleasure. Now there’s even more stuff to talk about, and this time it’s coming right out of your tray table and it’s all Android-powered.Skycast Solutions is hoping that their new Trayvu system will be the reason you choose one airline over another, as they’re banking on installing the suckers into all kinds of current and future aeroplane seating options. The 8.9″ screen will be built right into the tray table, and it looks like you can view things in the open as well as the upright and locked position. Just be sure to hold onto that Diet Coke, as we wouldn’t want anything spilling on the new travel technology.

The plan is to keep things pretty customisable, but a basic installation is probably going to allow access to television, games, music, and more. There are even plans to include some kind of memory card spot, so either you or the airline can load in some unique content. We’re most looking forward to a potential electronic version of the SkyMall catalogue—obviously.

No word on any pending contracts as of yet, but with a low installation cost—and three-day install time—we’re thinking someone’s got to sign on sooner than later.
