When a Wraparound Video Display Can Trump a Window – Ixion windowless private jet by Technicon Design, from Dezeen:

Technicon Design‘s French office built on experience working in the commercial aviation sector to come up with a conceptual yet plausible proposal for the Ixion jet.

“The ethos of the project is simple, to challenge current thinking, and propose something a little different, but not just a fantasy,” said Technicon design director Gareth Davies. “It has to be credible and relevant, yet provoke discussion.”

“We quickly settled on the controversial yet interesting idea of removing the windows from the cabin and using existing or very near future technology to display the exterior environment to the inside surfaces of the cabin via external cameras.”

Cameras on the plane’s fuselage – the main body – and wings would capture the surrounding views, which would be projected onto high-resolution screens on the sides and ceiling in the cabin.

The low-voltage display would be powered by solar panels integrated into the roof….

Screenshot 4 2 14 11 48 AMEvery Tuesday is Art Tuesday here at Adafruit! Today we celebrate artists and makers from around the world who are designing innovative and creative works using technology, science, electronics and more. You can start your own career as an artist today with Adafruit’s conductive paints, art-related electronics kits, LEDs, wearables, 3D printers and more! Make your most imaginative designs come to life with our helpful tutorials from the Adafruit Learning System. And don’t forget to check in every Art Tuesday for more artistic inspiration here on the Adafruit Blog!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
