While those lucky enough to fly private are already privy to the experiences, soon the high-flying experiences will change if this windowless private jet ever goes into production.
The Ixion concept from Technicon Design isn’t actually windowless, but appears that way, since the cabin wall interior is lined with flexible, high-def screens that are able to project a real-time, 360-degree view through a live feed captured by a pair of wing-mounted cameras.
Using parallax technology, it would also be possible to create multiple displays, allowing you to seamlessly boot up a video conference call or in-flight entertainment while simultaneously taking in the vista currently below and beneath.
Of course packing in so much wild tech eats up a lot of power, so they’ve outfitted it with a large swath of solar panels on the front top section of the plane’s exterior to keep things properly juiced in-flight.
Who knows, maybe one day we will be staring out one fuselage-sized window. But until then, you’ll have to settle for the good cloudy oval.
