Windowless Airplanes

To some it may seem fascinating, to others, petrifying, but the Centre for Process Innovation is working on a windowless airplane that could be in production in the next decade. Despite the name, that doesn't mean a steel box without any views of the outside. It's a plane that is made up of smartscreen panels that transform the entire wall into a giant window. Wow.

Not only would this offer passengers an unparalleled view while flying but would also reduce the weight of an aircraft.  This would lessen the amount of fuel needed to fly thereby reducing costs and airfare (hopefully).

I can hear the collective shrieks of nervous flyers everywhere.
