No matter what age you are, Looking out of the window is always fun and is considered as the enchanting feeling to do so. However, how will you feel by looking out of the planes with virtual windows?
Emirates is the first one to envisage the next level of windowless airplanes. The screens are attached to fiber optic digital cameras which are pointed away from the airplane.
Planes with Virtual Windows are a dream come true
Virtual windows were launched by airline’s Boeing 777 for first-class cabin last year. The windowless plane will not only add beauty but also will make the plane lighter and faster. With this reduction in weight, the plane will get more fuel efficient. This news was broken by Tim Clarke, Emirates president.
While giving an interview to BBC, he said:
“Imagine now a fuselage as you’re boarding with no windows, but when you get inside, there are windows”
Clark further added that:
“Now you have one fuselage which has no structural weaknesses because of windows. The aircraft are lighter, the aircraft could fly faster, they’ll burn far less fuel and fly higher.”
Clark told that the image quality of window is very good and it looks better with the natural eye. A famous travel blogger, Zach revealed that he got a glimpse of virtual windows during taking off in last year and it was a wonderful experience.
