Depending on how you think about it, the IXION Windowless Jet Concept either has no windows, or it has all the windows.
Cameras on the exterior of this as-yet-unbuilt jet would provide jaw-dropping 360-degree views of what you would be seeing if your aeroplane were a transparent glass tube shuttling through the sky.
The interior “walls” are actually floor-to-ceiling video monitors that that display what the cameras “see.” Or, they could display anything else — just check out the GIF above, which imagines showing underwater or outer space scenes on the huge monitors in the cabin.
A rendering of the jet’s exterior is below. You’ll notice it has solar panels to help offset its electricity footprint and that it is a truly windowless vehicle!
We encourage you to check out the video below, which features a computer-generated walkthrough of what it would be like to actually fly in this beast.
