Fighting over the window seat has existed since air travel was invented. However, with the new idea of producing windowless planes, there is no more need to look for special places in the plane, because every passenger will be with the equal opportunities for the panoramic view of the sky. The Center for Process Innovation is a leading technology and research company from the UK, which is creating the future of air travel!
The advanced planes will be windowless, which, instead of windows will have the entire length of the plane covered in OLED touch screens. This type of plane will provide everyone in the plane with a virtual window seat!
The experts believe that within 10 to 15 years these planes could hopefully be a reality!
All over the outside of the plane will be placed on cameras that are connected with the touch screens above the passengers. On the screens will be displayed a realistic view of what is going on around the plane outside.
However, for those who are getting sick of looking at the sky, there is an opportunity to turn the virtual window into an entertainment system.
What is OLED-touch screen technology?
OLED means an organic light-emitting diode, where is a film comprised of organic compounds capable of projecting light as a reaction to an electrical current.
Maybe that sounds scientifical, but the use of this technology is a reality in televisions, tablets, computer monitors, and mobile phones. Of course, every advanced screen on the market will be used by the time these planes are actually manufactured.
The entire walls of the plane will be filled with screens, so the passengers could look out at the view surrounding them.
The experts are sure that the projections on the screens will reflect the real world outside, which will be a challenge for a few conspiracy theorists.
There are also disadvantages of this new concept, including the raised concerns that many people have when there is a higher amount of light, which can also cause some passengers discomfort.
