A British Company Invents Windowless Airplanes That Could Turn Flights Into Completely A Different Experience
Flying is said to be one of the best ways to travel, according to those who frequently use this mode of transportation. It is also statistically safer to travel across the ocean by airplane than by boat. Considering the tragedy that befell the Titanic and the unpredictability of the ocean’s waves, that shouldn’t come as a surprise.
Throughout the years many aircraft designs have come into existence. Some were for flying cars, others were for double-decker airplanes (yeah, just like those buses in England). Smaller jets might only fit about twenty people, while something like an airplane from the Boeing series can fit hundreds.
With the varying amount of seat in a plane, why not replace the windows with something ‘practical?’. That’s what British tech company The Center for Process Innovation wants to do with a special new technology.
The tech company hopes to outfit commercial airliners with special OLED-touch screens that extend the length of the aircraft.
Don’t worry, that doesn’t mean you will not be able to see outside. In fact, these special screens will be connected to cameras that dot the outside hull of airplanes that have the screens.
Having the screens available will allow passengers to pull up their ETA to their destination, check out recent news, or even request stewardess services.
While the concept is great in theory, it may come with a new set of problems. It may relieve claustrophobia for some, but for people already scared of heights, it might be a source of stomach-churning anxiety.
Anxiety aside, wouldn’t it hurt to crane your neck to the side so often?
The technology is still only in the concept stage, but the same screens are used in today’s manufactured cell phones.
What do you think of being able to see an entire expanse of sky during your flight? Can you handle it or would it turn the stomach of the most seasoned airplane traveler?
