  • What if there was something that could actually measure you're welling being while you fly?

  • To put the experience of flying with us to the test

  • We invented the Happiness Blanket

  • And conducted the unique live experiment of 30,000 feet

  • Using portable neuro-sensor technology

  • We developed a wearable device

  • that measures the electrical fluctuations in the neurons of the brain

  • Identifying when the wearer's experiencing a feeling of well-being

  • This information relieved 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 a passenger's mood whilst enjoying food and drink

  • It can also see the variations in 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 enhancement 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
