Is This The Future Of Air Travel?

Those of a nervous disposition to flying and/or heights might want to look away now.

Having already made a name for themselves with their designs for a supersonic business jet able to fly from New York to London in under four hours, Spike Aerospace have impressed us once again, introducing us to a revolutionary windowless passenger cabin.

Instead of those normally pokey holes we’re used to squinting out of, the entire cabin wall will be embedded with thin display screens, which, depending on the glare of the sun or whether it’s time for a nap, we'll be able to dim using our personal control panel. And if you do have a fear of flying, they claim the technology will also allow you to change your piece of the wall into one of many scenic images available from a computer.

Mind you, fetching looks aren’t the only reason for the cabins on the vessel due for release by 2018 - the smooth exterior of these digital walls (an amalgamation of micro-camera and flat displays) will reduce the drag normally caused by having numerous windows, meaning, yes, even faster speeds.

Not that the engineers need too much help in that regard, already claiming they can get the bird up to 1200 mph, working out to around double the current speed of commercial airliners.

Looks like the next four years are going to, erm, fly by.
