Lucid dreaming is a state in which you become conscious within your dreams – being able to take control of your surroundings and achieve what would normally be impossible in the real world. Remee is the first sleep mask that offers an affordable way to enter the lucid state.
Normally it takes time to identify certain behaviours in the waking state that you can then check in the dream world – behaviours that will be significantly different and allow you to know you are dreaming. The sleep mask aims to make this process a lot easier, using flashing red lights in place of habitual actions.
The mask will detect once you enter the Rapid Eye Movement (REM) portion of sleep – when dreams normally occur – and start flashing the built-in lights. These will then diffuse into your dreams and allow you to identify that you’re dreaming.
Funded through Kickstarter, the project managed to raise 1600% of its target amount. You can get your hands on one of the masks for $95 dollars. Some experienced lucid dreamers even claim that changes made in your dream can carry over to the real world.
