Rich People Get All The Nice Toys: Plane With Elevator That Rises To An Observation Bubble Atop The Fuselage

airplane-bubble-seats

You can’t buy this yet. Matter of fact, most of you won’t ever be able to buy a seat in this ride. But there are people who are seriously contemplating making the SkyDeck system a reality. Aerospace engineering firm Windspeed is working on a patent pending contraption that would raise two seats in the airplane through an elevator, all the way up to an observation bubble atop the fuselage. The lucky travellers would then be free to observe their surroundings from 30,000 feet up. The system can be installed on any type of plane, and can come in a staircase version for those clients who are filthy rich, but not filthy freaking rich. There are no definite plans to launch in the near future, but the company is in talks with manufacturers with the goal of integrating SkyDeck in future iterations of their aircraft. Considering the lengths some airlines go to to accommodate their wealthy patrons, we wouldn’t be surprised if this ridiculous idea came to life.
