BA Happiness Blanket

Asylum Supervisor

Sam Hue-Vashon

As part of BA’s endeavour to improve their services with frontier technology, Asylum was commissioned to fabricate blankets that respond to the passengers’ level of happiness and relaxation.

These high-tech blankets were interwoven with fibre optics that, when used in conjunction with┬áMyndPlay EEG Headbands, glowed from blue to red depending on the users’ brainwaves. They were tested on a group of volunteers who flew with BA from Heathrow to New York as an experiment to study one’s state of wellbeing during late night flights.
