Windowless Planes Could Take Flight in the Near Future
The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) has created a concept design for windowless air travel, an idea that could become a reality within the next ten years.
Windows would be replaced with full-length OLED screens displaying panoramic views of the planes surroundings captured by cameras mounted to the plane's exterior. The firm states that removing the windows from the aircraft would reduce its weight and cut costs for passengers and airlines.
The development of windowless air travel would also include advancements to the aircraft's fuselage including widening individual seating, cutting fuel consumption, and reducing CO<sub>2</sub> emissions.
