Editorial: Future Flight
October 31, 2014
The aerospace industry is constantly looking for ways to cut costs on passenger aircraft and the latest experiment could be a preview of what flights will be like a few years from now, and its based on organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs). OLEDs are a combination of advanced materials that give out their own light when activated by electricity. Unlike LCD and plasma displays, they do not need a backlight, so they use less energy and can be much thinner than other displays, while also providing a higher contrast. Currently, the focus is on wallpapering them on rooms, effectively turning the walls into lights. That could also revolutionise aircraft design by creating full length screens instead of windows on aircraft. The concept of the windowless plane is being tested at the Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) in England that works with companies to develop new products. It imagines how large, hi-definition, ultra-thin and lightweight displays could form the inside of the fuselage, displaying images of the exterior from cameras mounted on the plane's exterior.
