Emotion Blankets

Posted by in Health, Wearables

British Airways’ Happiness Blanket is equipped to do more than just wrap you up in warmth – it will also give off different colours to represent the emotions you’re feeling.

The Happiness Blanket is woven with optical fiber brainwave-measuring neuro-sensors that will change between hues of red and blue, based on how relaxed a traveler becomes. The data collected from the blankets will be used to improve various parts of in-flight service, from meals to menu and movie options.
