July 18, 2010 By arne hendriks 1

Airlines have tried to compensate the increase in passenger size and weight by adding extra taxes and designing larger and more fuel efficient airplanes but surely there are limits to how big our vehicles can become. Shrinking on the other hand would open up a world of opportunities for retrofitters. Redesigning and repurposing our systems and vehicles of transport could turn out to be one of the most rewarding aspects of becoming small. A 50 centimeter person weighs about 2 kilograms.

How many half meter people fit in a 747?
