Windows are kind of a drag for airplanes—literally. They add extra weight, weaken the body, and generally slow the aircraft down. That's why the new Spike S-512 Supersonic Jet won't have any. Instead, passengers get to enjoy their sky-high surroundings on real-time, panoramic video screens.
It sounds a little silly, but it's true. The $80 million jet will feature an ultra sleek exterior outfitted with "micro-cameras" that will capture the pretty blue sky and little fluffy clouds as they stream by. The cameras are connected to curved displays that span the length of the aircraft and give passengers an unprecedented view. The displays can be dimmed if anyone wants to take a nap or, presumably, turned off completely if anyone wants to test out their claustrophobic tendencies. This is all while the supersonic jet is flying 1,370 miles per hour, and passengers are drinking blue wine.
