Two Australian scientists have partnered with the Singapore Tourist Board in making a headset that would measure brainwaves to conjure a travel guide based on emotions. The device records a person's emotional response in a pre-experience filled questionnaire with electroencephalography, or EEG, by measuring the neuron activities inside the brain, according to The Lonely Planet.

Joel Pearson from the University of New South Wales and Peter Simpson-Young of the University of Sydney developed the device to cultivate new experiences tailored to one's emotions. Simpson-Young said in a video, "We meet with one of the five families and get them to complete a quick questionnaire about their personalities and travel experiences." Afterward, they are taken to each 20 experiences and strap the headset to measure emotions in real time.

After the experience, the family is asked for feedback on each experience. From the brainwave measures, Simpson-Young and Pearson were able to develop the Singapore Emotion Travel Guide which allows people to see how different experiences results at various emotions and tailor their plans based on that information.

Pearson added that using brain science to make the perfect holiday is the "next step into the future" of brain science and technology. The scientists have asked blogger Chantelle Ellem of Fat Mum Slim to test the headset on her and her family.

The family experienced being happy when they went to Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum, Jurong Bird Park, and ArtScience Museum as it stimulates children in many things they have to see there. A record of excitement in Little India and MegaZip Adventure Park was buzzed when the family got to experience having henna tattoos, shop in exotic stores, and have their hearts racing with ziplines.

When the family enlisted for a Singapore River Cruise and an afternoon at Kampong Glam, they felt relaxed as they discover each of the places' history. Fun times for the family meant a trip to Gardens by the Bay and had a ride with Singapore's cable cars on tow.

Of course, what's interesting for them is the local food Singapore has to offer as there are over 100 hawker stalls in the island to discover. For more information, one can view the Singapore Emotion Travel Guide here.
