The concept for a windowless plane is the brainchild of the Centre for Process Innovation (CPI), London.

“CPI is working on technologies now that will deliver this vision over the next 10 years,” CPI said on its website.

The windows would be replaced with ultra-thin and highly-flexible screens that would display outside scenery captured by cameras attached to the plane’s exterior.

The new plane will provide a big panoramic view with walls fitted with screens all around that would let you see what’s outside, CPI said. More info
