It may seem like something out of the Leonardo diCaprio thriller Inception, but a new upstart company promises that it has invented an eye mask that will actually allow you to control your dreams!
While it may resemble just any ordinary night mask, the new Remee mask is being touted as a unique REM (Rapid Eye Movement) enhancement device which will allegedly allow the wearer to help guide the direction in which they would like for their dreams to go.
The goal of the new mask is to allow the user to select the type of dream they would like to have, from cavorting on a tropical beach to riding a horse across a dewy field beneath a beautiful blue sky. That's the claim from Duncan Frazier and Steve McGuigan, both 30, who have started their company Bitbanger Labs which designed and will manufacture the new device.
The inside of the mask is fitted with a series of six, red LED lights that, although too faint to keep the user awake, the subconscious brain will still be able to sense the lights. The user can program the mask to perform a specific light sequence, which the mask will perform once the user is in the deepest of sleeping patterns, REM, where people experience most of their dreams. The idea is that your brain will recognize the flashing pattern of lights and tell you that you are dreaming, meaning you will then have control over how you want your dream to end.
The masks are available for pre-order and are being marketed at $95. For more information, you may visit the company's Kickstart Page or watch the video below:
