Virtual Reality Visors To Replace Windows In Planes

As someone who is not particularly fond of flying, this new plane design will pretty much guarantee that I will not leave England after they're introduced.

The idea is to get rid of windows completely, and instead have live image projections

Instead of your standard LDC screens, passengers will pull virtual reality visors over their heads to pass the time by watching movies or playing video games in 3D.

Not only that, but the walls of the windowless 2050 aircraft itself will show films, maps or relaxing scenes at night to help passengers get off to sleep.


The designs were drawn up by Airport Parking & Hotels and students at Imperial College London, and shown by The Times.

The aircraft is said to have space for lounges, bars and extra leg room, as well as room for even more passengers AND be more environmentally friendly as it will be propelled by clusters of electric fans.

This is some proper futuristic stuff, this.

Beverley Barden of Airport Parking & Hotels said: "Air travel has long been considered an uncomfortable way to begin a holiday.

"With these advances in passenger space, in-flight entertainment and extra room for bars and relaxation, this will finally be a thing of the past."
