Neuroon – an intelligent sleep mask that can monitor and analyze users’ sleep and enhance its quality – will soon add a new feature for lucid dream induction. This long awaited function combined with a brand new mobile app will change the way we think about our dreams and interact with them.

Have you ever wondered how your life would change if you could go to sleep and control your dreams? This is what lucid dreaming can offer – being aware while being asleep and therefore able to consciously influence the content of your dreams. It seems like a computer game, but then so is science sometimes! The scientific evidence on lucid dreaming came out of Hull University in the UK in 1975, when Dr Keith Hearne recorded the predetermined eye movements of his lucid dreaming patient during the REM phase of sleep. Since then ongoing neuroscience discoveries have strengthened researchers’ beliefs that lucid dreaming can no longer be thought of as just a fantasy in a movie script.

Neuroon, a device that is the result of current trends in neuroscience, is the first product on the consumer market that can automatically analyze human sleep by monitoring brain signals and improve sleep with light therapy. Lucid dreams may occur rarely spontaneously or they can be induced by specific techniques divided into two groups: behavioral techniques and external stimuli. The Neuroon’s ability to detect REM sleep precisely, allows it to start implementing external stimuli techniques into the mask and induce lucid dreaming while the person is in the REM phase of sleep. Currently, the Neuroon is the most advanced system on the market due to its built-in professional sleep tracker and artificial algorithmic methods for performance improvement.

The Neuroon Lucid Dreaming feature will consist of two parts: behavioral techniques and external stimuli. Both are based on the research conducted by Heidelberg University in Germany and the University of Bern in Switzerlandamong others. Behavioral techniques aim at preparing the user’s mind to start lucid dreaming while external stimuli are a direct influence of the mask on the user’s REM sleep with the help of light, vibration and acoustic stimulus. Only with both of these methods can lucid dreaming be fully experienced.

Working on the lucid dreaming feature was first announced by Inteliclinic, inventor of the Neuroon during their Kickstarter campaign two years ago. The idea was given a very positive reception so after finishing the final version of the Neuroon, Inteliclinic’s developers focused on this new function.

The Lucid Dreaming App for Neuroon will be available from August and will only work in its full potential with the Neuroon mask. For all the customers who buy the Neuroon before the end of June it will be free of charge.
