A New Airplane Design Lets Flyers Take in 360-Degree Views Via 'SkyDeck'
Most of the time, a tiny airplane window doesn't do the in-flight views justice. A new design from Windspeed Technologies—a business focused on aerospace engineering—comes with a "SkyDeck" located right in the center of the airplane. Essentially, said deck is a transparent pod allowing two lucky passengers to take in the passing views without any obstructions. This is the kind of thing air travel dreams are made of.
The best part: getting to the actual views. The video shows an elevator of sorts that transports too very cushy-looking seats to the top of the airplane, making it entirely impossible to crowd around. Once at the top of the viewing portal, there are controls that allow the flyers to rotate the pod for a full 360-degree view.
