The Kiev-based startup 'Luciding' recently developed a headband called the 'LucidCatcher' that promises to give consumers a way to control their dreams. While it is possible to learn how to lucid dream without technological aids, the process can be complicated and time-consuming. This headband is designed to help people experience moments of lucidity in a faster and easier way.

The LucidCatcher is a high-tech headband equipped with electrodes that sit against the wearer's forehead. One the headband detects that the users is in REM sleep, it will emit low-powered electrical pulses that stimulate the brain's prefrontal cortex without waking the user. The pulses are designed to improve insight and control, thus giving users the power to control their own dreams. As Luciding explains, the headband ensures that "your dreams come true while you are dreaming."
