Spike Aerospace's New Supersonic Jet Is ENTIRELY Window Seats

A Boston-based engineering firm recently released plans for their new supersonic jet that will transport passengers from Los Angeles to Tokyo in five hours... and with no windows, but instead full-length digital screens that instantly turn every seat into a window seat.

The screens will show images relayed from tons of tiny cameras on the jet's exterior. Real windows create complicated problems for plane design, so the jet's creators said a slab of screens was the next best -- and maybe the actual best -- option.

The S-512 jet will debut in December 2018. If passengers get tired of looking at the world beyond, they will be able to dim the "windows" or switch to a different scene entirely.

We wouldn't mind taking a seat.
