30 Futuristic Jet Designs

From Mind-Controlled Jetliners to Fuel-Efficient Airplanes

— August 7, 2014 — Autos
The push for modern aircrafts is putting a strain on designers to keep augmenting designs to be as futuristic as possible, which can be seen in this collection of jet designs that ranges from sustainability-focused designs to others focused on pure luxury.

Although the notion of sustainability in transportation is a hot topic, we're also seeing a distinct increase in the number of consumers looking for opulent ways to travel, which includes jet designs that are for commercial use and others that are strictly private. Beyond that, we're seeing a rise in the number of jet designs that are pushing boundaries for speed and efficiency; a design that can get passengers from A to B faster than another is going to get attention in all the right ways.
