TOPEKA, Kan., Jan. 8 (UPI) -- A developer says the condos he is building in a Kansas missile silo are equipped with digital windows offering panoramic views of whatever city you want.

Larry Hall says location, location, location is all relative in the seven units he is building in the wilds of Kansas that are selling for $2 million each.

The Denver-based developer, who is keeping one unit for himself, told CBS News his futuristic "windows" are designed to give residents a panoramic view of San Francisco or whatever scenic locale strikes their fancy.

There are more-practical aspects to buying in, Hall says, including the ability to withstand an atomic bomb or meteor strike. "If you want to retire and you don't want your electricity bill to go up and you don't want your food bill to go up and you don't want to worry about insurance -- have we got a place for you," he said.
