Windowless Plane Is Your Worst Travel Nightmare
And it's closer to reality than you think..
Your worst travel nightmares are about to be realised. Four words...
A plane without windows.
The Centre for Process Innovation in the UK have designed a concept work which would see the small, dingy windows in planes replaced by full-length OLED screens which display panoramic views of the outside, captured by cameras on the plane’s exterior. The screens would also provide in-flight entertainment and internet access.
The Guardian reports that the creation of a windowless plane would also reduce the price of airfares in the future, as removing the windows of the plane would reduce the overall weight of the aircraft, with the cost saving able to be passed on to airline and passenger. So it's not all bad news.
Would you be game enough to take a ride?
