In the hopes of improving the design of private jets while still meeting the strict safety requirements from the aviation industry, Brazilian airplane manufacturer Embraer designed the Kyoto Airship.

The innovative private jet is extremely spacious and has features like a dining area and a two-person shower. What makes the design of the Kyoto Airship particularly interesting is the inclusion of large, door-shaped windows on the jet. The windows surrounding the jet allow for more light to filter through the area and allow for better views and a more "open" appearance. The company took into account cost and efficiency when designing the jet and as a result, placed the large windows where the doors normally would be -- ensuring that the windows do not add too much weight to the aircraft.

While this luxurious private jet is not affordable for most people, its innovative design could be adopted in other airplanes for passengers who would like a similar experience.
