About this project

LUNA is a luxury supremely comfortable smart sleep mask, made from the soft foam bonded with soft-touch fabric.

LUNA mask not only helps you to get a good sleep during the night by blocking out all sources of light which may disturb you during your sleep, but also has programmable: Sunrise Light Wake-Up Alarm, NAP Sleep and Lucid Dream Induction features, 0.9' OLED display.

Sunrise Light Wake-Up Alarm feature, which will simulate sunrise at programmed time, by slowly increasing the intensity of light emitted by 4 ultra bright LEDs. This will help you wake up in a good spirit, feeling energized and refreshed. It's like have your personal sun wich will rise when you wish. also LUNA has interior eye cavities so the mask doesn't touches your eyes or eyelashes.

You don't need a computer or smartphone to use or gonfigure your LUNA. Everything is driven by a powerful on-board microcontroller.

Have you ever really thought about how much time we spend sleeping in our life ? The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) says that over a lifetime an average person spend 227,468 hours sleeping. That's 26 years of sleep!

Good sleep is not a luxury, is a necessity.

Sleep is a naturally recurring state of humans characterized by altered consciousness, relatively inhibited sensory activity, inhibition of nearly all voluntary muscles, and reduced interactions with surroundings.

During sleep, body systems enters into anabolic state, a kind of "maintenance mode" helping to maintain and repair our immune, nervous, skeletal, and muscular systems.

Sleep deprivation (the lack of sleep) is widely recognized serious problem of Modern Life, and can cause following negative effects to human health:

It is obvious that it is essential to have a good sleep in order to have a good health, good mood and a fulfilling life.

NAP SLEEP - Extra-fast charger for "humans batteries".

When we are sleeping, our physical body is "recharging the battery" under the control by our subconscious, which never sleeps and need no resting.
I wouldn't be wrong if I say that almost everyone has encountered the lack of sleep, with these terrible feeling of stress, oppression, sleepiness, feeling tired and exhausted during next day long. 

The lack of sleep may be caused by multiple reasons.
For example, young parents almost always experience sleep deprivation because their babies wake frequently in the night for feeding and diapering.

If for some reason you can't get the good night's sleep, NAP will definitely help you out! 

LUNA mask has a build-in programmable NAP feature, with the Sunrise  Wake-Up light alarm.

NAP, also know as Napping or Siesta, is a short period of sleep, typically taken during daylight hours.

It's been scientifically proven that napping is extremely beneficial for human body, physiologically and psychologically. Napping for 20-90 minutes could be as good as a full night's sleep and help you to refresh the mind, improve overall alertness, boost the mood and increase your productivity.

Here is a short list of famous historical figures who have regularly practiced napping: Leonardo Da Vinci, Napoleon Bonaparte, Nikola Tesla, Thomas Jefferson, Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Winston Churchill...

NAP with LUNA is really easy.
Simply select a suitable program from 10 NAP presets, press the “Start”, put the mask on your head and sit back or lay down. When the NAP, or night sleep period will be finished the built-in Sunrise light alarm will wake you up gently, so you will be in good mood, feeling refreshed and energized.


Lucid Dreams


From the ancient time mankind tried to figure out what our dreams are. Some says that dreams are creation of our brain. Some says that it's a portal to the other worlds.

When we are sleeping, our our subconscious controls all physical processes of our body, while our consciousness is resting. Every night, during the REM state of sleep, we see the dreams multiple times. However we forget most of them.

In most cases, we do not control our dreams, and we only play the role obeying the rules of the game. Everything seems perfectly normal. Even if you will see will see a flying blue cow you will not find it strange. This is due to the fact that our consciousness is in "standby mode".

Sometimes however, our consciousness may become active during our sleep and then two options are possible:
1. We will be injected from our dream. Like if the "Matrix" has detected the intrusion or the hack.
2. We gain the full control over our dreams. And we can do whatever we want.

The good news is that you can gain the control over your dreams more often than it may happen randomly.

LUNA mask has a programmable Lucid Dream Inducer feature.
When standby timer has been elapsed mask will emit a series of visual (light) cues and will repeat those cues after programmed intervals. Those cues will help you to "Turn ON" your consciousness and understand that you are actually dreaming. Then you gain a full control over your dreams...

Support the LUNA project now.
The project in now on its pre-final prototyping stage and we need your support to launch the production. The video shows the working handmade prototype.The fabric on the backside of that prototype is not bonded to the eye cavities due to the multiple inner design updates.
Of course, the manufactured version of LUNA mask will have the eyes cavities and will look like on the 3D concept rendering pictures.

We have been through few design and rigid-flex PCB's upgrades. We have already found and negotiated with few manufacturers who are able to manufacture LUNA masks according to our requests. We've already ordered and tested small batch (20pcs) of PCB/PCBA pre-production samples. So PSB/PCBA factory choice is already made. In this sense we believe that the majority of the project's technical risks have been overcome.

In order to start the mass production we need first to manufacture two expensive molds which will be used for mask "body" production. 
With your support we can make LUNA project to come true.

Risks and challenges

We have years of experience in electronics development and production. We know every step needed to be taken from an idea to shipping ready to use devices. Maximum risk, is a short production / shipment delay.
