On Saturday, we connect two things that don’t usually go together.
Today’s pairing is windowless rooms and people.
We start the discussion with the idea that perhaps we can redeisgn fighter aircraft to eliminate the cockpit and all that glass. We can cover the interior with displays or display the outside world inside a helmet mounted display.
The aircraft design no longer needs to consider how to keep a good line of sight for the pilot if center of gravity, balance and other ideas can take the forefront.
Perhaps the future is already here! The NASA X-59 does not have a forward looking window.
Emirates is considering a plane with no windows…..
Or perhaps you have a basement or interior room with no window looking out into the world. Such a room can be cozy or confining. Adding a faux window opens the room up!
Think about rooms without windows that you use everyday. The theater, elevators, shopping malls, department stores.
Add sunlight lighting, heat effects.
Now, instead of reluctantly entering a room in your house that lacks windows, or the interior office that doesn’t have the view… now every space can become the premeire spot to be in.
That image with the proper arrangment will feel more real than reality. Scenes from Rome, the beach in Hawaii, the mountains in Colorado, or even an outerspace feel.
Think it, and it can happen.
