Engineers propose air travel amid high-tech, wall-to-wall screens

PSFK has previously reported on windowless private jets, ideas for transparent plane cabins, sensory isolation devices for fliers, and other areas of innovation and personalized “info-tainment” in the future of air travel. However, a recent proposal by a UK development group may further change the shape of commercial flights to come (and even make them more bendy).

The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI), a British organization that works with companies to develop new products, expects that airplane cabin windows may be replaced by full-length screens within a decade. In addition to seeing the plane’s camera-mounted outside views, passengers would be able to use the screens to examine particular sights, cruise the internet, or simply turn them off.
