The new technology is based on screens from mobile phones and televisions. CPI's windowless aircraft concept include large, ultra-thin, high-definition screens that are lightweight and are spanning from floor-to-ceiling.

Passengers of the green technology aircraft would have the capability to change their view from the live-feed of the outdoors, to checking their personal emails, watch te…
