If you've read Stephen King's Dark Tower series of novels, you should remember who Blaine Mono is. Endowed with intelligence, but a crazy train that intended to destroy the main characters. He also knew how to make the walls and ceiling of the car transparent. A somewhat similar technology is being created by the French company Technicon Design. The concept of the IXION aircraft has already been developed, which will not have a single porthole, but passengers will be able to see everything that is happening overboard.

The idea is that several cameras will be installed on the outside of the fuselage, broadcasting the image to panoramic displays inside the cabin. It is also planned to place solar panels on the roof of the business jet to power technological gadgets that require a lot of energy.
If the passenger gets bored with the surrounding reality, he will be able to choose any other view entered in the program, or display an image from a laptop on the screen. This option may be useful, for example, for holding online conferences.
We live in an amazing time. More and more science fiction writers' ideas are being translated into reality.
