Scientists create lucid dreaming mask

Duncan Frazier and Steve McGuigan have built a device that they claim can let you control your dreams.

The "Remee" device looks like a standard sleeping mask but features a series of red LEDs on the inside that are faint enough to avoid waking you up but visible enough for the brain to register. Once you have entered REM sleep the lights activate, alerting you to the fact that you are dreaming and thus allowing you to control what happens in the dream.

"In a twist straight out of the movie Inception, a duo of developers from Brooklyn, New York, have built a sleeping mask designed to allow people to have lucid dreams that they can control."

I don't need a 95$ mask to dream. How would it be able to control your dream... And if YOU CAN CONTROL it then guess what any one else can too! It's bad enough we have big brother in our life WE don't need him in our dreams too!

It was only a few years ago that I discovered that lucid dreaming was not a normal experience. I have always been able to do it. Being able to levitate and fly over a moon lit landscape is an incredible experience. For reasons I cant comprehend and despite knowing that it is a dream, it is in all respects a reality that actually forms a memory! Anyone have any ideas why?

There are many explanations the worst one is that it is fluke of nature.

The fun side of lucid deaming is amazing, the flying the exploring the learning the um sex. sometimes i would meet people who would tell me that they were lucid dreaming as well, which was the biggest mind blower. but i was warned about lucid dreams which i didnt listen to. there is a dark side, please tread carefully.

You don't need a mask to Lucid dream and also remember your dreams is very possible with practice.

Indeed the mask is unneeded but the fact one was made is not that great either. They pretty much stole the idea from masks used in hypnotherepy. Also such masks have also been used to raise a persons awareness to things around them and thus have been tested in various locations as a attempt to communicate with ghosts.
