Meet the coming iPad in-flight entertainment system

At its core, Apple’s iPad is an entertainment device — one that certainly has the power to make air travel much more enjoyable. Enter Bluebox Avionics, which is introducing a customized iPad for airlines dubbed bluebox Ai, “the world’s first iPad inflight entertainment system.”

Bluebox Ai units have reportedly already been approved to offer inflight entertainment content and will give passengers the full iPad experience including access to iPad games and apps, iBooks, consumer magazines offered through Zinio and airline-specific custom applications.

Besides iPad games, apps, iBooks and consumer magazines, you can also take your video or DVD movies to watch on a flight, many 3-rd party tools help you get the job done.

Details are slim right now, but what we do know is that an international carrier will start offering the bluebox Ai iPad units to travelers in July, with other airlines to follow suit shortly thereafter.
