Your subconscious is excellent at creating detailed images and compelling narrative, but it's bad at committing these to memory. That's why, even though we typically dream for two hours each night, we can usually only remember bits and pieces of the dream we were having just before waking. That's two hours worth of creative thoughts, insights, and adventures that you experienced but won't even remember, much less benefit from. In the mask, light signals promote better dream recall by seamlessly introducing tiny gaps of consciousness that link the dreaming mind, which has trouble creating new memories, to a more wakeful state that can.
These same gaps allow you to carry some of that mindful, waking consciousness with you as you re-enter your still in-progress dream. Your mind will be more prepared to notice (and create) new details, and as an added bonus, when your next recall gap occurs there will be that much more in-depth detail to commit to memory. In this way the two features complement each other well. If dreams are a well-spring of ingenuity, understanding, and new experiences, then we owe it to ourselves to make them as rich and animated as we can, and sharpening the overall level of detail is an excellent way to do so.
When you experience any level of conscious awareness in a dream, you have already started down the path to lucidity. Understanding that you're dreaming without waking up is exhilarating, entertaining, and beneficial. Simply knowing that you're inside of a dream is only the beginning; with practice comes greater control. Experienced lucid dreamers have been honing this skill for thousands of years to reap a range of benefits from the recreational (flying, exploring) to the practical (problem solving, brainstorming) to the profound (self-actualization). If this is your goal, we can help you get there!
1. Night Lights
The rear-facing LED's serve as your touchstone to the waking world. Using a series of smart timers, light patterns are displayed throughout the night, targeting your REM cycles where dreams most often occur. The patterns can be as gentle or as jarring, as bright or as dim, and as fast or slow as you like. The more time you've spent tuning your light patterns the better success you'll have improving recall & clarity, and the closer you'll be to lucidity!
2. Comfort Zone
We listened closely to customer feedback to improve every aspect of the sleeping experience with these dream masks. The flexible circuit is protected by a 2-ply foam shell: a durable inner layer laminated with a cushioning soft foam outer layer. The foam inserts are aerated to allow for better airflow, reducing heat and sweat. The head strap is lighter and softer, with stronger materials. The nose cutout has been raised to help the dream mask sit more firmly against your face. In short, we made the best sleeping mask in the world that much better!
3. Flexible Tech
This sleep masks brain is a durable but razor-thin flexible circuit that can be bent to the shape of your head without being damaged. Weighing less than a quarter ounce and powered by a tiny coin cell battery, the electronics are barely noticeably inside the masks comfortable shell. Rather than adding bulky USB ports or wireless chips, the mask receives new settings via two pinhead-sized light sensors at the corners of the circuit.
