The design also has important structural implications, according to Spike Aerospace. The company says removing windows simplifies the construction and integrity of the aircraft, reducing the overall weight, part count, and air drag created by the window ports in a traditional jet. At supersonic speeds, the S-512 will allegedly make the trip from New York to London in half the time it takes competitors.
This implementation—and similar innovations in cruise ships—is really only possible because of recent developments in display technology. While the screen specs haven't been confirmed, it seems likely that the Spike S-512 will use OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) panels, a curvable display type that's much thinner than traditional panels.
