The makers of a new biohacking device claim it can help enhance mind control and allow you to master your dreams. The Napz mask senses the Rapid Eye Movement phase of sleep, and activates lights that shine through the eyelids to stimulate lucid dreaming, a state where sleepers are more aware and therefore can be more in control of the dream.
Dream control is a method that can help people suffering from insomnia, severe nightmares, PTSD and similar sleep disorders. Lucid dreaming is a known therapeutic technique and has been in use for over 100 years, but it is a notoriously difficult thing to master. For the first time, Napz will allow patients to access that state quickly and without the many hours of training normally needed.
Although instant access to dreams is currently targeted at people in treatment and recovery, there is little doubt mind control technology like this will have a role to play in enhancing our recreational time in the very near future.
