British Airways has developed a "happiness blanket", which will analyse the "meditative state" of fliers and change colours according to the passenger's mental state.

Upon boarding, fliers will be required to affix a headband to their head. The headband will then send brain-waves via bluetooth to the high-tech blanket, which is embedded with fibre-optic LEDs that change colour to reflect the person's mood.

When the wearer is calm and relaxed, the blanket will glow blue; when they are stressed or anxious, it will glow red.

The airline will analyse data from the blankets to evaluate their in-flight services, including the timing of meals and movie options.
It will also allow flight attendants to better improve their service, letting them know the best time to approach a potentially grumpy passenger.
