I think this is so very cool. This plane is has not been built yet but It may get legs.

The IXION windowless Jet.

Todays bendable video screen technology is opening doors to cool new ideas. This plane will use a video camera to project to a all encompassing video presentation inside the airframe. It can project whatever they want including space or underwater scenes. it also plans to use a solar offset system.

Check out the GIF.




I am looking forward to hearing if anyone has opinions on a plane without windows. Do you think it has Structural or Safety benefits or just a cool factor?

Enjoy

I think it'd be totally great. I'm not afraid of heights though.

Wouldn't be so bad as a subway car.

Yes, they should build it.
How cool would that be?

If they did,I'd even get over my fear of flying.


Another picture from your link, boy this looks great.
Today's technology is growing so fast, it never stops to amaze me.

If you got to see what the view outside was like, that would be really great and they should build it. But how do you resolve the desire of someone wanting some darkness so they can sleep vs. others who want a view?

I just know that advertisers would pay big money to have fancy CGI adverts shoot across all over that display. The potential would be just too great. Imagine the screen resolution required. That would go beyond HD 3D movies. It would be wonderful for underground tube trains. Lot more interesting than seeing tunnel cabling

Yup,

And all for a bargain of only $50,000 per seat!

I'll book mine now so I can sit next to a socialite on her way to shop in Paris.

Peace

A.....a 2 dollar blindfold?

The exterior is conventional.

You could put the interior into any plane you wanted to.

Or bus or train or whatever, but I don't know why you'd want to, in anything other than a subway car, where there's nothing to see anyway.

Especially why you'd want it in a plane, where there's so much to see?

Nah, can't see this becoming popular, unless it also had the option of displaying the world outside the plane.

Perhaps a better use for this technology would be a stationery installation in the form of a motion-control ride or cinema to give the illusion of travelling without the need to use one of those nasty jets.

It does. It uses exterior video cameras to project outside to inside. It just has the versatility to show whatever you want.

For those of you that like video




"The ethos of the project is simple, to challenge current thinking, and propose something a little different but not just a fantasy. It has to be credible and relevant, yet provoke discussion". Gareth Davies, Design Director at Technicon's French Studio near Paris.

"I challenged the team to break out of conventional thinking with regards to a business jet exterior and interior. Whilst defining the concept sketches for the exterior, I asked the rest of the team to start thinking about interior concepts and what we could do differently.

We quickly settled on the controversial yet interesting idea of removing the windows from the cabin and using existing or very near future technology to display the exterior environment on flexible screens, which cover the walls and ceiling of the cabin, via external cameras.
This allows weight reduction, simplifies construction and opens up an enormous spectrum of possibilities for interior design. We wanted to couple this with amorphous solar panels which power the low voltage systems on board and thus offer a unique visual dynamic for the exterior.

The user experience is greatly enhanced by directly engaging the passengers with the environment outside, to the point of exhilaration by giving an unhindered panoramic view from the inside. A myriad of potential cabin moods and themes open up by tailoring the images or ambiance that is displayed, even by mimicking a more traditional interior if desired."

In regards to modern wrapping techniques of aerofibers it makes sense building a structural air frame without windows.

This would greatly cut the costs of manufacture, and the costs throughout the maintenance cycle of the vehicle.

This would also work for passenger buses, doctors waiting rooms, etc,etc.

And you could put it on the walls of a children's ward at a hospital and just watch them smile.

Indeed. Imagine the computer and graphics adapter they would need to run that resolution. That thing would take up the lavatory and generate enough heat to make the jet a hot air balloon, and require enough electricity to power your entire house.

That may or may not be exaggerated, but still, it would require a lot of power, and a lot of graphics power as well.

Tech like this won't be limited to transportation:

It sure would be easy (well , hard) to put that technology on the "skin" of an aircraft (looking like a UFO) thus making it invisible to the naked eye. This possibility has been brought up on ATS before. Sorry for not being able to find links because I am on an IPhone.

I'm guessing it would do wonders for submariners. Getting a few hours of "daylight" when you previously could not for weeks/months might be a huge psychological benefit.
