Project X: Part II

After some discussion we’ve decided to go with a six led style mask rather than the one of two leds of all the other sleep masks. A couple reasons but the main thinking is that with six leds we’ll be able to create more complex, recognizable patterns that should make it easier to pick the lights out while you sleeping. Often people who use masks report seeing the light patterns, but their brain will rationalize the lights into the lights of an ambulance or a disco party or some other crazy thing that is just normal enough in a dream to stop you from achieving lucidity. With six lights we can create all sorts of patterns to make it hard for the brain to create explanations. As a side bonus, more lights means people with various head sizes will still have their eyes fall into the LED area of the mask. You can see we’ve got the LEDs up and running, this is just before we added the two push buttons, and all running from a single coin cell.

  2. In reading thru your info most of my questions have been answered. I Am Excited to put it mildly ! I’ve only had two really lucid/vivid dreams in my life, I can remember them perfectly as if yesterday. Have always looked forward to the day when it would happen again. If this comes close I’ll be happy. Now for my suggestion or comments, will the cover be washable & the strap adjustable. I wear a mask every night & they can get grungy & if you wash them the straps get all tangled up. I really think I would male the strap replaceable as they have a tendency to loose elasticity over time. let me know what you think & good luck am now going to order.
