WINDOWLESS AIRPLANES

We have at different times looked at different inventions or future inventions and we have seen varying innovations that have blown us away. The invention we shall be exploring today, though not yet in use but has been unveiled as a work in progress is the WINDOWLESS AIRPLANE.

The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) has designed this concept and estimates that these should be flying our airspace in about 10years. The idea is to replace the windows currently existing with full length OLED screens that allow passengers to experience panoramic views of their journey that will be captured by exterior cameras on the plane. This feature is said to also provide passengers with access to the internet (yaaaaay!!!) and in-flight entertainment. 263180_5_800

According to an estimation done by CPI, over 3 million people are said to fly annually, which in turn translates to over 200,000 gallons of fuel being used. This new design is intended to not only reduce the weight of the aircraft but also reduce the cost of flying for air travellers and even for the airline as well.

With innovations like this, the human race is greatly advancing and changing the world as we know it. We as Africans must therefore be ready to embrace the changes and advance with the rest of the world.
