   It's strange to see a similar design for flying vehicles from the far future. It look like 70 - 80 yrs old airplane with same "new" interfaces. Technically it not working good (deadly bad) for atmospheric - space pressure difference. It cant protect good from flying objects like space junk, ballistic weapons and other. If cockpit has micro damages in aggressive environment, pilot has no chance to survive. Why pilot from far future need window and physical manipulators to operate vehicle?
  I thinking, more realistic and same time futuristic to see a cocoon or capsule with human - machine interfaces like neural interfaces with fully customization camera, life supporting system, emergency life rescue and support system, beacon and others.


Very interesting, what are you think about current version of cockpits.

I agree there are good reasons not to build real spacecraft with cockpits like those.  However, in any science fiction setting, there needs to be a balance between what seems probable and what is recognizable to people.  We do not know what the equivalent of a cockpit will actually look like in the future, but people in the future are likely to instantly recognize it when they see it.  Making the cockpits resemble ones we are familiar at least captures that feeling.

Hi,

 

Having transparent cockpits is also for gameplay purpose.

RP wise, we probably have found very resilient transparent materials. Like plexiglas is a lot better than glass.

Lastly, look at all futuristic books and movies. Except a few exceptions, they still put transparent cockpits too. Probably because it helps to find know points of reference for immersion.

 

Regards,

Shadow
