The Centre For Process Innovation, a United Kingdom product and technology research company, came up with the concept of flying windowless. The plane's windows are replaced with floor-to-ceiling hi-def screens. They display panoramic views captured by cameras mounted outside the plane. If you don't like you view, you can change it by choosing from a menu of pre-recorded images. Stuck on an isle seat? Not to worry. The head rest on the seat in front of you has a screen that serves as your window to the world. The screens can also be used for entertainment like watching movies, surfing the internet -- or ordering in-flight services. CPI says the ultra thin displays allow more plane space and save on fuel costs. The company believes the idea could be a reality in ten years.
