The airline has just unveiled a new first class suite on board its latest aircraft that features “virtual windows” instead of real ones.
The President of Emirates, Tim Clarke, is hoping it will pave the way for removing all windows from future planes, which he says will make them lighter and faster.
Mr Clarke says on the inside there will be “a full display of windows,” which will beam in the images from the outside.
This will be done using fibre-optic camera technology. So, instead of being able to see directly outside, passengers will view images projected from outside the aircraft — which is almost like the real thing.
In fact, according to Mr Clarke, the technology beaming the images is even better than seeing it “with the naked eye”.
This means that when you look outside you can only see a projection instead of the real thing.
Emirates have unveiled designs for a new first class suite, which feature fibre optic cameras that beam an image of outside onto the window.
President of Emirates Sir Tim Clark told the BBC: “The quality of the imagery is so good, it’s better than with the natural eye. [It’s] as if you were in the window seat.
“So can the new generation of aircraft be windowless with this technology? In my view there’s no reason why not.” The sun reported
