View the experiment

We continue to refine our on-board experience – adding improvements that have a positive effect on passengers’ minds and bodies. We wanted to see the actual physical and mental effects these have and so we created the Happiness Blanket.

Discover our new on-board refinements now.

What is the Happiness Blanket

What is the Happiness Blanket?

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.

How does the Happiness Blanket work.

How it works

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.

The experiment

We invited seven people on a flight to New York and seated them across World Traveller Plus, Club World through to First, so we could measure the effects of our refinements in all cabins. View the results of our experiment below.
