I bet while traveling by plane most of the time, people are fighting over the window seat. The reason is simple; they want to enjoy the magnificent view. Inspired by the idea to give the passengers a panoramic view of the sky, the Center for Process Innovation is creating the future of air travel.
This British technology and research firm is constructing futuristic planes that will be windowless. The length of the aircraft will be covered with OLED touch screens giving the passengers a virtual window seat.
CPI believes that these planes could be a reality in the next 10 to 15 years. The cameras placed outside the plane will be connected to the touch screens allowing a display of realistic view of what is going on around the plane outside. You can turn the virtual window into an entertainment system if you get sick of looking at the sky.
OLED means organic light-emitting diode, where the film comprised of organic compounds is projecting light as a reaction to an electrical current.
This kind of technology is currently being used in tablets, cell phones, computer monitors, and televisions. We should bear in mind that by the time these planes are manufactured, we are going to have more advanced screens.
All the walls of the plane are filled with screens. It allows everyone to see what’s going on outside in the air. You would agree that this idea is fantastic. You don’t have to worry about getting a good seat again.
However, some people raised concerns. They think that the amount of light caused by all the screens might cause discomfort among the passengers.
