A UK based company has put forward an exciting new concept of a windowless plane to change the future of air travel. Centre for Process Innovation, the company at the centre of the idea, claim the idea is an exciting new concept for the future of air travel. The windowless plane they propose would combine the most innovative technology to create faster, cheaper and more accommodating travel, meaning your work never has to wait until you have touched down.
Brand new Fuselage technology could see the introduction of interactive screens offering entertainment, in-flight services and even e-mail access at 35,000 ft. By being able to surf the internet during flights means that you will never again miss key details or be left having to catch up on work progress once you have landed. CPI’s design could revolutionise the way we work and prepare for meetings and conferences.
The concept is still being designed, but the ideas behind it could revolutionise the workplace, meaning you are never out of touch with clients and colleagues. Plane windows would be replaced with wall panel screens, offering real-time live panoramic images of the sky outside. These offer a lightweight alternative to the current plane models, meaning there is room to increase wider seating space and travel will be cheaper.
The planes offer a new lease of life to those of us used to travelling long hours between countries and meetings for work. The screens provide subtle lighting that you can alter to darker or lighter, easing the strain of jet lag and helping you adjust to changes in time zones.
The Centre for Progress Innovation is a member of the UK’s High value Manufacturing Catapult, whose work focuses on inspiring development in new technology. The company is funded by the government, and has assited the production of exciting OLED screens in County Durham. Whilst the idea is still being designed and produced, CPI have announced they can forsee the product becoming a reality within the next ten years.
