Windowless Planes Could Be Here in 10 Years

The commercial flight cabin as we know it may be on its way out.

That’s according to a new report from the Centre for Process Innovation, a British technology research company, which projects that in 10 years the industry will be ready to offer passengers a richer visual experience than what a small, fogged-up plastic window allows.

In the CPI design, familiar rectelliptical airplane windows are replaced with giant OLED displays lining the inside of the plane’s fuselage. (OLEDs, organic light-emitting diodes, are the same technology behind recent light, ultrathin, high-end televisions.)

The screens could be used to display images of the exterior of the airplane, as well as information relevant to passengers. CPI said that the technology necessary to manufacture the displays for the same price as current displays is just five years out.

Imagine flying in a storm

Nice! Some people will freak thinking they are about to fall out into the clouds and certain death...

I take it the guy with the Forest on his window is scared of heights? Speaking of that. When you turn off your screen, does it not help that you can see everyone else's? Especially if you're scared of flying...

It would make a crash much more terrifying. Nice concept. Not!

Only a matter of time before they offer a PRON option.

I think it's fucking awesome! Next time I fly I want it to be in one of those plane after I take an eighth of mushrooms..

The technology is there now and has been there for a long time. They won't use this in 10 years because it's not cost effective. All you need is a camera and a way to display a feed. Aircraft are all about going as light as possible and as simple as possible. If you thought a huge high end TV was expensive, wait until you are ready to line the inside of an air liner with those displays.

On a side note, the tech in aircraft used today is WAY old. Decades old. It's reliable, it's proven and aviation as a whole doesn't want change. Sorry to burst the bubble
