      "They say we only use a fraction of our brain's true potential. Now that's when we're awake. When we're asleep, we can do almost anything. "

      http://www.inquisitr.com/240581/reme...-dreams-video/

      Lucid dreaming is not a common occurrence for most slumbering people, yet two 30-year-old investors have created a sleep mask they claim can make your dreams a reality or at least controllable. Known as the Remee Sleep Mask the gadget uses specially timed LED lights to notify you of your dreams.

      According to the inventors the mask contains six red LED lights that are bright enough to grab your brains attention but not bright enough to wake you up as you sleep.

      As your brain realizes the red lights are flashing during REM sleep you are suddenly aware of your dreams and therefore able to control them.

      According to the inventors the ability to lucid dream is not easy to realize and therefore the mask likely will not work every single time you put it on.

      While the idea of controlling your dreams might sound far fetched a lot of people are already on-board with a Kickstarter page raking in $572,891 for a product that originally requested just $35,000 in funding.

      The money raised comes from more than 6,000 backers who want to try out the $95 Remee sleep make for themselves.

      The Remee sleep mask starts shipping in July and if it doesn’t work at least buyers will have a cool new psychedelic sleep mask to wear while they sleep.

      In the meantime here is a video from Kickstarter which explains the Remee sleep mask in more detail:
      Think it might work? If so, I need to start working on a list of celebs I need to "visit".

      I'd buy one. Dreams always take me to some cool places. I'd love to explore my brain and see just how effed I really am.

      Eh, it doesn't cost $100 to train yourself to lucid dream. It isn't as easy as putting on a mask but it is free.

      Ugh. Anything that repeats any variant on this idea is full of ****, full stop. The whole "we only use 10% of our brains" thing is a feckin' shyte-load of malarkey.

      for $95, f that noise. i was recently reading an article about a guy who made a similar device. all they do is flash a small led and you are supposed to notice this in your dream and be able to become aware that you are sleeping.

      This is hilarious, and a great example of why gullibility is a bad thing. I can't believe people would hand over almost $600,000 and are willing to pay $95 for this. I made an arguably more sophisticated version back in college (that's 18 years ago) with about $10 in parts. Swim goggles, a potentiometer, a 555 timing chip, and two LEDs is all it takes to make an alpha wave sleep mask. While the goggles worked just fine, I wasn't banging 10 supermodels in my G5 every night unfortunately. Sad how easy it is to get money out of people.

      Any less than 10 is failure?
      Bro, do you even lift? When you only have 90 horsepower, you don't ever lift.

      But that's not what "they" say

      Best vivid/lucid dreaming experience I've ever had was after taking Chloroquine (anti-malaria meds). The doctor warned me it happens, but I was not prepared. I almost want to take some more just for the experience

      Driving around in the rain, I'd wager most people use less than 10%.
