British Airways has a new onboard blanket that will do more than just keep you warm. The happiness blanket is a new experiment from British Airways to measure how their on-board experience is holding up according to the customer.
The Happiness Blanket is a revolutionary device that visually shows the wellbeing of a passenger in real time by changing colour to reflect their mood while on-board.
A Myndplay headband measures tiny electrical fluctuations in the neurons of the brain. This information is sent via Bluetooth, every second, to fibre optic lights woven directly into each Happiness Blanket. If the blanket goes red, the wearer is stressed and if it goes blue, the wearer is relaxed.
