Imagine a world where planes don’t have any windows and you can choose to see whatever you want. As you sit in your plush leather seat, you can pull up your email or whatever city skyline of your choice on the inside wall of the plane.

No need to imagine it any longer, thanks to Spike Aerospace, an up and coming company made of up engineers who want to make air travel more advanced than ever.

The Boston-based company has come up with a windowless jet that allows passengers to enjoy the personal flying experience they desire. Passengers can choose to literally fly among the clouds and see a view of their journey projected on the interior of the plane.

In addition to featuring maximum comfort and special effects, the jet is will be going at supersonic speeds. Spike Aerospace has predicted that it will be able to take travelers from Los Angles to Tokyo in just five hours.

As someone who travels across the country for seven hours to get to school, this jet sounds too good to be true. This kind of speed would allow people to travel faster for work, school or even emergencies.

In countries such as China, they have advanced towards this type of speedy traveling. For example, running through China is the bullet train which goes at high speeds in order to carry its passengers through the vast terrain.

So, what does this mean for the future? I hope that it means this sort of transportation will be more accessible to the general public. I know that at first it will be ridiculously expensive, but maybe some day even the average traveler can fly from Los Angles to Tokyo in just five hours.
