Windowless planes to show view on screens
August 27, 2014
WINDOWLESS planes could soon cut the cost of flying, say experts. Instead of looking out through glass, passengers would watch interactive plastic display screens lining the cabin that show images of what is outside. The new technology is being developed at the Centre for Process Innovation in Sedgefield, Durham. Not having windows will reduce the weight of an aircraft, lowering fuel costs. An expert said yesterday: "Getting weight out of a plane is a key goal for the industry." Freight aircraft and military transport planes already operate without fuselage windows which are not necessary for safety reasons.

Making Virtual a Reality
August 25, 2014
Minutes after Facebook announced plans to buy virtual reality firm Oculus VR in March, the jokes began popping up on Twitter. "Just checking my Facebook news feed!" the messages read, accompanied by photos of people in unwieldy, Facebook-branded Oculus Rift headsets. It was amusing because the people in the photos looked ridiculous sporting the bulky Rift, but the jokes highlight a persistent problem: The equipment needed to make VR a reality is not as cool as the technology behind it. In a video titled "The Faces of Morpheus," Sony recorded attendees at this year's E3 trying out its new Project Morpheus virtual reality headset. And although those who experimented with it seemed impressed, they still looked like goobers stabbing the air with Play controllers, trying to fight off virtual sharks. Facebook doesn't seem too concerned with the VR cool factor, and it is making a $2 billion bet that it is actually the next big thing in technology. But can manufacturers find that sweet spot between amazing technology and stunning equipment to match? And can your stomach handle the ride? Oculus, Sony, and even Google are hoping the answer is yes.
