Touchscreens to cut future cockpit complexity - E & T Magazine


This is exciting. I love the idea of augmented reality to assist with using machines. It would be interesting if the control unit for the plane was removable for use off the plane as well. For example, if the unit was some sort of tablet, it could contain flight details and statistics about the flights it had been used on. That would be good for reviewing flights and for training purposes.

I would love to see some of this technology make it down to cars. Assisted driving would be excellent!

Some american airline ordered thousands of Ipad tablets to replace passenger aircraft flight manuals and log books.
