DIY NPT Dreamer

28 05 2015

I decided to revisit an old project of mine from last year after being inspired by the NPT Lucid Dreamer which is currently running on Kickstarter.

Basically to recap from my previous post, the crowdfund device relies on nocturnal penile tumescence during REM sleep periods for an erection to push apart a set of magnetic contacts, activate a switch and hopefully make you aware that you are dreaming, via means of an audio file played back for you to hear whilst still asleep and not wake you up.

I decided my idea instead would be to target post-WBTB (Wake Back to Bed) where the REM periods are longer and more frequent rather than at the start of the night.

Sleeping and/or resting positions when trying to ‘wear’ the device would however be limited to mainly the supine or possibly lying on the side only. This coupled with the awkwardness of the prototype device make things a bit impracticable to say the least. Read the rest of this entry »

Just when you thought it was safe to go to bed. Wayne Kendall, the man behind the Luci dream headband *scam is back. This time it is with a more plausible, more down to earth solution to possibly attaining lucid dreams for men using erections.

This relies on the science known as nocturnal penile tumescence or MPT where the penis becomes more erect due to vasodilation during REM, providing there is no underlying medical issue. Read the rest of this entry »
