The SkyDeck Bubble Is An Airplane's Ultimate Window Seat

SkyDeck was invented "to kill the boredom of long flights," according to the CEO and inventor Shakil Hussain, and boy, would it ever. Windspeed Technologies has invented what may be considered the ultimate window seat. The SkyDeck is a tear-shaped bubble sits on the top of an airplane, encasing one or two passengers in super-strength materials so they can experience flying in the clouds. The bubble can be installed in many different types of airplanes, and offers a 360-degree view of the sky. The bubble is accessible either via stairs or elevator. For those interested in installing the bubble on their private or commercials jet, get ready to shell out a little cash: installation of the SkyDeck would cost anywhere from $8 to 25 million.
