    I wonder how well this actually works. How good can this technology be in the future? Will we be able to control games through lucid dreaming via brain signals? OK, enough daydreaming. Have you ever had a lucid dream? No? Maybe this is your chance.

    Have such dreams.... yeah, at various points in time it happens quite easily for me. Inducer however brings up some interesting things, I would not trust some half arsed kickstarter to do big boy brain manipulation (nor would any medical safety board worth their salt) and the others I have never seen be truly effective for a big enough selection to be truly viable (it is a solid percentage above chance/noise/placebo for a lot of them but in terms of commercial efficacy I would shoot it down in an instant). I will have to look further into this.

    As for controlling games

    For some reason this makes me think of LSD: Dream Emulator.

    It's all fun and games until someone hacks your LUCI and makes you make them sandwiches and buy them pants via subliminal suggestion :ph34r:

    I have no idea what you mean by that :blink: Please elaborate. If you're asleep, how can you see the game?

    See the game in your dreams?
    :lol:

    Basically I mean is to turn your lucid dream into video dream games.

    $150 for Kickstarters.

    Maybe some people really can't do it without help. :unsure:

    To be fair, LSD's a much cheaper alternative.

    The only reason most people "can't" do it is because they don't take the time to learn how. I suppose to be fair, getting yourself "prepared" (to a point) is fairly tedious, so I guess this could be for like...those lazy people who can't be assed about it.

    The first part of the video is utter bullshit. There are many stages of lucid dreaming, and usually realizing that you're dreaming causes you to awake from it, and...wait. That's not correct. We all dream multiple times a night, but our mind tends to forget anything but the last one (and even then...dreams are often hard to remember if you don't actively try to do it, eg by writing it down).

    So not only does it require practice and you will also need to make time to REMEMBER these dreams, in most lucid dreams you don't have complete control over everything. It's one thing to realise you're in a dream, but something completely different to actively steer what's happening to what you want. The few times that I was lucid enough to control my own movements and make an attempt at flying often sort of failed somehow.

    and if that first part is bollocks...why should I believe a word of the second part? They don't even have testimonies from witnesses, let alone scientists!

    Step 1: get some directional speakers that make people hear voices in their head.
    Step 2: transmit "This is a dream, take control!" into the heads of random passerby.
    Step 3: sell paranoia medication.
    Step 4: Profit!

    I've had a lucid dream once, it was pretty intense. I didn't have -full- control over it, it slipped in and out at points, but it was fucking neat.

    As for on topic content - I'd rather train myself to have lucid dreams than buy this. What works for one person, especially when it comes to this type of stuff, usually doesn't always work for the next.
