In a concept design created by U.K. product and technology research company, Centre for Process Innovation (CPI), an airplane’s windows will be replaced with floor-to-ceiling screens displaying 360-degree views of the sky captured by cameras mounted outside the plane. In addition to the real-time displays, the screens would also be used for entertainment purposes, showing detailed information about the objects seen outside the plane and playing recorded media. The screens would also double as touch-screen displays for in-flight services.
I’m not sure that I would really like that, no matter how pretty the clouds and the sky are. When I’m on the plane, I want to forget that I’m 26,000 feet above terra firma.
