Technicon Design’s concept luxury jetliner that replaces windows with screens that can display the external environment inside the cabin. It’s a cool thing since that gives passengers the feeling that they’re flying in a transparent fuselage. Actually, high-resolution cameras mounted on the jet’s fuselage and wings capture real-time video footage of the world outside and beam it onto flexible display panels on the cabin walls and ceiling.
Alternatively the displays could be used for in-flight video conferencing or for other pre-programmed images, such as these space or mountain scenes, or even to mimic a more traditional aircraft interior.
The futuristic IXION windowless jet was developed by Technicon Design’s team in France for a National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) show.
It has been applauded by industry leaders and it earned the team an award at the International Yacht & Aviation Awards in the exterior design category.
