Wow, tough luck.

Yea, there are a few ways to make it vibrate softer...limiting resistor....pwm... but I can see why you would want it to wake you out of a dream once first.

What timing are you using? perhaps it is too often and thus waking you up?

It's set to vibrate every 45 minutes.
Yesterday I had this thing wake me out of a dream. So now I can proceed according to the plan and reduce the vibration.
I set it to 50% PWM, it's very subtle.
Let's see what happens!!!

Awesome! also, I decided to look at your picture again to see which pic chip you are using. I used a different one because I used picaxe to program it; but I noticed that you used picbasic pro; thats interesting cuz thats what I usually use....except I dont have the pro version. Just cool to see another person use a lot of the same things and methods I would use.

Hey realtalk413, both of your posts are really good suggestions, but unfortunately I must say neither are very practical. The heart rate actually doesnt seem to change too much during dreaming compared to normal sleep, from my research it seems to be almost the same as when you are awake. If Im wrong, please point out the resource you are using. Also, the problem with changing limbs is it takes away the instinctual aspect of this technique. Feel vibrating watch-do reality check. Basically, you are forming a reflex during the day that should help at night.

i got the vibralite 8 and i am still experimenting with it (only had it since yesterday). before going with the vibralite i was actually looking at a "pager" looking vibrating timer called the invisible clock-

<mod>link to vendor removed (please read forum guidelines)</mod>

it is only $40, and the vibration has a sensitivity adjustment. i opted for the vibralite because it seemed more convient to wear. i suppose you could strap the invisible clock to your wrist or ankle, but it would look funny on your wrist and i would not be able to wear shorts if i wanted too. I will be buying the invisible clock next though, maybe i can wear it on my ankle in the winter. gotta go, my vibralite just went off...

Is anyone still working on this? The vibralite8 is a little to expensive for me, so I really want to see your finished watch, rarebreed!

My deepest apologies; but I have stopped all work on this. I had some good ideas for it... but I really dont have the time. Since I am now at college; I dont have any of my tools/parts either. And since Im a freshman I dont really even have access to the labs. I'm sorry; since there is still interest perhaps I will pick it back up when I can.... But don't expect anything any time soon.

Sorry to "revive" this thread, I hope its not too old.

Anyways, I just found the Casio Pathfinder 5, which vibrates every hour, and its pretty cheap. I'ts only 26 bucks. Sense i know the mods will delete my link, ill just say how to find it.

Google "Casio Pathfinder Vibrating 5" then go to "shopping results" then sort by "Price cheapest first" and the first link is the good one, should be from "Fourwatches" or something.

It is an old thread, but I still like reading it through now and again. Thanks for that, i'll be looking into it.
My experimentation and journey of LD is still ongoing, and I like to think I'm making good progress.
I have been designing a device of late, and think i've got it down to a tee. But I am looking for someone is a specific field to help me finish it. It's unlike anything else out there, and I can pretty much guarantee, LD for anyone who uses it within a 2 weeks. It's design and workings are specifically for Lucid Dreamers, (not for telling the time).
Thanks for this post though, I will be checking out that watch.

BAM! revived...

I have to say, after my last post I stopped practicing LD's because of life-situation. But now I'm back in full-force. My VibraLite8 has actually run low on batteries, and I haven't replaced them yet, so when I do, I am thinking of reviving this technique and seeing about further progress on the idea of it.

Also Jayster, I'm curious how your device is coming along?

Vibration Alarm Watch
PostPosted: Sat 21 Jul, 2012  Reply with quote

I bought a Timex Expedition Vibration Alarm Watch T49851 and it's perfect for this. It only vibrates for like 10 seconds, it's inexpensive, you can cusomize the interval between each vibration and also when it's has vibrated it automatically restarts the countdown again if you set it to! I highly recommend it smile


Current LD goal(s): I am currently trying to have a Lucid Dream :)

Thanks! I am going to check into that. I have difficulty remembering to do RCs during the day and have been watching this post to see if anyone would have a current suggestion. I wonder if the guys who started this are still around?



Current LD goal(s): My first real LD was vivid, and I was very lucid. I want to do that again.
