A Windowless Jet With Gesture Control

Imagine your own private jet.

Now imagine your own private jet without windows.

Seems strange doesn’t it?

Technicon, an automotive design company based in the UK, has come up with a jet concept that uses cameras outside the plane to project the images inside, thus eliminating the need for windows. Meet IXION.

While Gizmodo points out that it will feel more like animated wallpaper from inside, the concept turned a lot of heads and won Technicon a 2014 International Yacht and Aviation award for its innovative design.

Mix television wallpaper up with solar panels used to power the interior systems, and then allow passengers to control their display with gestures, and you have a pretty fascinating future concept for a private jet.

Check out the video below to see just how it would work. (It’s pretty cool!)
