Tired of fighting for the window seat every time you travel by plane? Well then when you read about and see the latest idea for plane travel you may wonder–what took so long?! A British Technology research firm known as The Center for Process Innovation says they are creating the key to future airplane travel: windowless planes.
Check out this futuristic idea, you never know this could be the way of travel in the next 10 to 15 years!
So what is an OLED-touch screen? OLED stands for organic light-emitting diode, which really means that a film made of organic compound projects light as a response to an electric current. It sounds fancy, but OLED technology is used in television screens, mobile phones, and desktop monitors. In fact, by the time these airplanes are ready for actual use there will likely be a more advanced screen available for use.
With OLED screens making up the walls of the plane, passengers could look out at the world around them without having to score an ideal ‘window’ seat. Even though the projections are said to reflect the real world outside, this new technology could really get the conspiracy theorists going.
Instead of staring at your device all day you could upload your content onto the surrounding walls as well, in order to browse the Internet, or maybe even get some work done. But what happens if your plane neighbor doesn’t want to view the same content as you? Not to mention, can you imagine the neck ache you would get from turning your head to the side instead of looking straight down at your phone or (gasp) a hardcover book?
One day you just might find yourself explaining to your future children or grandchildren what plane travel used to be like–with real windows and crossword puzzles on paper!
