Have you ever had a dream where you could pretty much control it and you woke up super excited thinking it was the real deal? If so, you most likely had a lucid dream. The other explanation could be that the mushrooms you got from your buddy were not ordinary mushrooms.
I have experienced lucid dreams only two times in my life so far and it’s always disappointing to wake up from them because my dream world is so much better than reality. But thanks to Remee, having more frequent lucid dreams can now be an option. The Kickstarter funding has ended but you can still pre-order from the official Remee website. On Kickstarter, the goal was to raise $35K but they ended up with $572,891.
So what in the world is Remee? Remee is basically a sleep mask but with some extra features that will help you achieve more frequent lucid dreams. Now you may be asking, how? Sleep stages consist of two main categories. The non-REM sleep and REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep. The REM sleep is when dreams typically occur. A sleeper will go through the five stages of sleep with the REM stage lasting longer and longer towards morning. And this is where Remee comes into play by targeting long periods of REM sleep.
The Remee sleep mask has six rear-facing LEDs that will display light patterns for 15-20 seconds at a time at the peak of your dream-state. The lights are not bright enough to wake you up but it’s enough light to appear as anomalies in your dream world which provides a perfect opportunity for the dreams to become lucid.
You may also be asking why you would want lucid dreams. My answer to that is, why not? Just like bungee jumping or sky diving, a lucid dream is something everybody should experience. I’m not going to lie, it’s a pretty bad ass feeling!
The Remee sleep mask is available for $95 and comes in blue, black, red, cream, and yellow. For more technical details of how everything works, check out their website.
