Boeing Product Development engineers are working on cabin concepts that should deliver an eye-popping experience in the future. Along with strategic accent lighting, they are developing projections of light and imagery for ceilings, walls and bulkheads.
Airlines could use lighting enhancements on the walls and bulkheads to display information about the trip destination— or to project scenes that get passengers thinking about where they are going.
Future airplanes might have starry nights projected on the ceiling to help passengers sleep during red-eye flights. Passengers could see sunny and blue skies during the day to extend the look of daylight inside. All the technology could be tailored to each airline and be an extension of its brand inside the cabin.
These are just some of the ways Boeing is constantly looking at tomorrow’s technology today.
