Experience A Complete Panorama Of The Sky, All From Inside A Plane.

If flying makes you nervous, you might want to avoid booking a ticket on this brand-new plane concept. The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI), based in the U.K., has developed a concept to replace the traditional, porthole-like windows on plane fuselages with flexible HD panels that can display panoramas of the sky as the plane flies. 

CPI

The views would be fed via externally mounted cameras on the plane, allowing passengers to experience in real time the open sky around them. It images will be projected in 150dpi color on OLED screens, which would feature a protective layer for durability. Besides being beautiful and breathtaking (or terrifying, if you have a thing about heights), CPI also notes that the differences in light may help travelers adjust better to time zone changes and reduce the feeling of jet lag.

The panorama would reflect the sky during the flight, so night flights would be dark, and the lighting in the cabin would respond to the light in the sky in real time, helping people adjust to time-zone changes.

In addition, the walls of the windowless planes could be thinner and lighter than current plane walls, while also being stronger. A weight decrease would mean less fuel would be needed, cutting down on carbon dioxide emissions, and thinner walls would mean a little more room in the cabin. This is all still in its conceptual phase, but should it become reality, it could mean a new era in air travel. 

The seat backs could be used for personalized entertainment, or they could blend into the surrounding panorama.

Passengers could also use the display screens for information and to contact the flight crew. CPI Passengers could also use the display screens for information and to contact the flight crew.

Not only will the OLED panels be integrated into the walls, but into the backs of seats we well, so passengers can take in the view if they choose, or they can select their own entertainment. In addition, touch screens could provide passengers with information and in-flight services.

Panorama and cloud enthusiasts, as well as those without fear of heights or flying might leap at the chance to get a little closer to actual flying. Those who are a little more apprehensive around planes? Maybe not so much. While it might be a good way to get people excited about flying, they might have to factor in a separate, enclosed area for those who would rather not see the planet from 30,000 feet.

No, These Kids Aren’t Just Goofing Off. They’re Desperately Saving Their Own Lives.

School shootings are a tragic problem that educators and lawmakers throughout the United States need to address. It’s a reality that cannot be ignored. A study determined that, since the Newton school shooting, 28 people have been killed in 44 school shootings. (There were 13 school shootings in the first 6 weeks of 2014 alone.) To protect the children in schools, a company from Oklahoma named ProTecht is producing what they are calling a Bodyguard Blanket. This blanket is made of a bulletproof material that would hopefully shield children from shooters.

Steve Walker said that tragedies like Sandy Hook and recent tornado outbreaks inspired this blanket.

It would “stop that blunt-force trauma,” like bullets or rubble.

The blanket has straps so it can be worn like a backpack. It’ll be made with lightweight padding used for ballistic armor.

The blankets are cheaper than tornado shelters, plus children wouldn’t need to leave the classroom in the event of an emergency.

The company is encouraging school administrators to make its protective blankets part of their protocols.

Anything is worth trying if it means protecting innocent children. Until a final solution can be found, protective gear like the Bodyguard Blanket could be a viable option in our schools. Share this helpful and potentially life-saving new product with others by clicking below.
