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."
