There is an interesting hi-tech blanket being tested by a British Airways.
They call it the ‘happiness blanket’, why? It changes colour when a passenger is asleep.
Well, the airline hopes to make flying and sleeping on their flights even more relaxing.
This is how the ‘happiness blanket’ works:
It uses neuro-sensors to measure a person¹s brainwaves and changes colour, from red to blue, to show when they are at their most relaxed and meditative
This will help the airline monitor a person¹s sleep and relaxation patterns during a flight to improve in-flight service such as timing of meals, what food is served and types of films shown.
The tests have already started with some passengers on board the BA189 Dreamliner service
from Heathrow to New York trying the ‘happiness blanket’ late June 2014.
