The DreamMaker
PostPosted: Sat 01 Jan, 2005  Reply with quote

Demand (apparently) was high after the novadreamer was discontinued. Now somebody has worked with the Lucidity Institute to create a new novadreamer.

The novadreamer detected REM and flashed lights. You would have conditioned yourself to recognise those lights as a signal that you were dreaming. Therefore, you would notice the lights and get lucid!

OK, to get to the part which most people find important:

DreamMaker: $200 each for first 100, then $349

DreamMaker Pro: $500 each for first 100, then $1000

EWLD is included as well as documentation for the DreamMaker.

Apparently the DreamMaker can move you to an Alpha state and then turn on the REM detection. The old novadreamer essentially detected the actual eye movement. The dreammaker also measures facial tension and uses both of these factors to detece REM.

Also, it can play a tape when it detects REM. This might be a useful reminder of what you want to do, or it can help you compare dream time to real time, or it can be used like self-hypnosis (but probably to less effect).

The site isn't very clear about why the Pro version is so much better. It has a Light and Sound machine, whatever that is.

I found it through the bottom ads.

Yeah, I saw this too. I probably won't but one, simply because I don't wanna spend all that money on one...

I wish it had gone into more detail about the pro version though. It costs more than double the other one, but it doesn't seem to do anything different (the usual one makes light and sound as well, right?).

R3m0t, please use this link:

[Q edit: edited link out -- please don't link to the ads like that]

The link is better because it helps ld4all smile

I wouldn't buy one. That is far too expensive! It is faster, easier and cheaper just to do LD without such a device.

Still ridiculously priced. I say we should boycott them to force a lower price.

An easier way would be to hook up a strobe light to a timer and set it to flash at times you are likely to be in rem sleep. Depending on where you go, you could buy everything you need for less the $30.00. I tried this a long time ago and it did work for me.
