Have you ever wanted to get work done in the time you waste sleeping? Now you can!
This project is essentially a highly complex lucid dream mask which detects REM sleep by eye movement.
You can then send predefined eye commands to the mask when inside your dream to control the outside world!
want to turn on a speaker with a preset soundtrack to soar above the clouds to?
want to set an alarm in your dream to wake you up in a certain time?
want to communicate with morse code and talk with people outside your dream?
theoretically you could even connect two of these up to communicate over the internet and talk dream to dream..
the possibilities are endless.
Yes Yes, that's a bit of a stretch but controlling things with single commands sent from the eye as in moving eyes up 3 times in a row can trigger really anything you can attach to it. More work will be done for figuring good eye commands and light feedback in the future
I know there are a few lucid dream masks on instructables but most or all of them just have predefined triggers every x amounts of hours to notify you are sleeping. not only is this harmful to your quality of sleep but its a trial by error approach. You end up obtaining lucidity by random and its a chance of luck If you do get notified when you are in rem sleep.
This mask accurately detects rem sleep patterns and then notifies you when you are 100% in REM sleep so that you will always have full control of your dream and not be abruptly awoken annoyingly or damaging your sleep quality.
please keep in mind that this is my first electronics project with little to no understanding of any components before I started this.
zero programming knowledge and zero experience making anything. A lot of this is rough and patchwork so please take it easy on me.
I learned everything about c++, mircocontrollers and circuits while I was making this. So If you are unsure of your capabilities, just know that you probably have more experience than I did before making this.
