Don’t you just love it when you know you’re dreaming and can control what’s happening? Yeah, we do, too, and wish it would happen more often. Thanks to a new Kickstarter campaign for the Aurora Headband, now you can! The smart headband plays personalized lights and sounds to help you achieve lucid dreams. Lucid dreaming is where you are aware of your dreams and can take control of what’s happening in them. Research shows that these dreams can actually help, with those who have lucid dreams having fewer nightmares or lower levels of stress and anxiety. The headband knows when you dream since it measures brainwave and movement activity, while also tracking body movements.
That info is then sent to your Android or iOS devices via cutting-edge Bluetooth Low Energy technology. To help you with your dream experience, the Aurora has a full spectrum of light effects with sounds that can be taken from your own music library or personal recordings. The accompanying app lets you then create and share your very own dream signs, in addition to being a smarter alarm clock. It knows exactly when to wake you up so you’ll be totally refreshed the next day. It works with both Android and iOS and can be yours if you pledge $200 ore more.
