What if there were something that can actually measure your well-being while you fly? To put the experience of flying with us to the test, we invented the Happiness Blanket, and conducted a unique, live experiment at 30,000 feet.
Using portable neurosensor technology, we developed a wearable device that measures the electrical fluctuations in the neurons of the brain, identifying when the wearer is experiencing a feeling of well-being. This information is relayed via Bluetooth to fiber optics woven into the blanket, which visually indicate what the wearer is feeling. When a person is stressed or anxious, the blanket turns red; when calm and relaxed, it turns blue.
We then conducted our experiment on actual flights between London and New York. And here is what we discovered: initially, there are fluctuations as the passengers settle in, but there is a noticeable lift in the passengers' mood whilst enjoying food and drink.
It can also see the variations and responses to different types of films and entertainment from comedy to thrillers. But most importantly, we discovered the unwavering sense of well-being created by being able to sink into deep, undisturbed sleep.
So we know that all the enhancements we've made—from the seat to the cuisine, entertainment, and lighting—have a positive effect on your mind and body, which means you can really see the difference when people fly with British Airways.
