Yall should make an app for biofeedback for meditation!
Thank you Mr.Spencer and Arenar for enlighting me. Im just so excited to received my first ever backing product.
João Paulo, thank you for your suggestion. The developer edition is limited in number so that we can offer all our developers with the best post-delivery technical support. We are working on how we can make more developer edition available without compromising on support.
@MR VERLIN, indeed as explained by @Spencer, “collected” implies that you have successfully pre-ordered the iBand+ and your pledge has been collected. Thank you.
@MR VERLIN, it says your money has been collected because it has been. You paid for the product in advance so that they can use the funds to develop it. You'll receive the product around the deadline stated in the kickstarter. Before then you will receive a survey for your shipping information. August was the original expected start of delivery, so do not expect the product any time soon.
The Indiegogo Developer Edition is sold out. It would be great if you make some more Developer Edition units avaible. I dont plan to buy a Developer Edition but it would be nice if there are many more peoples developing apps for the iband+.
Hi! My pledge status indicates collected. Why is it stated as collected, please walk me thru as it is my first time doing a crowdfunding. When will i get it here in Singapore. Thanks!
@Aaron, we will send a survey to all our backers requesting/confirming their shipping information before we ship the iBand+.
Wait, so how will you guys know where we live to be able to send us an Iband plus?
@Marc, we will make a general app release when we go into the production phase. We will keep all our backers constantly updated on our development progress. Thank you.
The lonely floater supports this. It's based off of dreams and reality.
When would the app be available for download?
@raddimus If we could make Inception become a reality, this thing would definitely not be as cheap as it is. It's a cool thought though.
@Stéphane, when you are trying to fall asleep, iBand+ plays music through the pillow speakers. The music calms your mind and induces sleep. Once asleep, iBand+ turns off the music and gently introduces white noise that masks distractions and ensures sound sleep. The forward facing iBand+ pillow speakers will ensure the sound gets evenly distributed throughout the pillow surface without leaking out of the pillow, thus providing you with discreet and superior auditory experience while in bed, and without disturbing your partner! Thank you for your support.
@raddimus, at this moment our application focus is individual lucid dreaming. Group lucid dreaming would require a great amount of research, which is outside the scope of our current study. Thank you.
@Fran, we are working diligently for bringing iBand+ to all our amazing Kickstarter supporters. Our sleep meditation feature will help you to relax yourself, define the dream cues, set the dream intention and increase self-awareness in your dreams - crucial preparation tactics to become and stay lucid in your dreams. Please read our update on stretch goal #2 for more details. Thank you so much for your support.
Great project! How do you help the user to fall asleep? Is the device activated and monitoring the EEG in order to detect that the user has some troubles falling asleep, and start helping him after some time? And do you use a speaker? It could be uncomfortable for a partner, so why not using the skull to transmit sounds directly?
Can lucid dreams be connected with other iband+ user ? I mean two or three people-one dream.
Cant wait to have iBand in my hands!!
Hope you guys do good job about lucid dreams help.
Im trying to have lucid dreams since last 3 years but its not possible.
I have been researching and one of my problems are because I was very distracted and Im usually have problems with memory (in general) many users in forums told me this is one of all about my problems to have lucid dreams.
Still to change that!! I don't know how you feel really in a lucid dream... I want to discover!!
@Felix, we will ship iBand+ to all our backers after manufacturing directly from Asia.
Will you ship the iBand from Amsterdam, Netherlands ?
@Heiko, the shipping companies will defer on the final destinations. Be assured, we will always choose what is best for our backers. We will also inform everyone before shipping their iBand+. Thank you.
With which logistic company do you plan to send the item? UPS would be worst case as they charge additional custom fees. I prefer picking up the parcel at customs myself...
@Blake, we will be including sleep meditation feature in iBand+. Please check update #5 for details.
You should develop an application to help meditation. I don't know the specifics, but I know your brainwave pattern changes.
@Julien, happy new year to you and everyone. With iBand+, we want to improve people's quality of life. Initially, we are focusing on sleep improvement and lucid dreaming applications. After that we will definitely be exploring other important application areas. Thank you so much for your support.
Hello, your project was a revelation for me. Because it 's the first portable (wearable) EEG recorder for people that have seen. A revelation cause I made epileptic crisis since 24 years and i hope for a machine who help me to prevent my crisis few minutes or few seconds before it happend. Lots of people are interested to help life quality. An App for epileptic would genius!
Thanks for the hope.
ans i wish an happy new year for the team.
@Felix, @LadyAnatares, thank you for your patience. We are excited to share our progress in our latest update that just went live! :)
Still excited for the next Update. �
Hey there, it's been a while. Are there any more updates or are you still working on the proof for manufacture stage? Thanks!
With the iband+, would sleep hypothesis affect the outcome in any way?
@Jacinto, thank you for getting in touch. If you check the campaign page, you'll see that the estimated delivery of "Popular Demand" reward has always been August 2017. We are on a mission to improve people's quality of life, and day-in, day-out we are working super hard to realize this dream. All our backers are in fact the iBand+ co-creators. We look forward to your trust and support in this process of making iBand+ a reality. Thanks again.
Why the estimated shipping change from December 2016 to August 2017???? That looks like a tremendous scam guys...
@Tim, you will get an early access to our SDK/API with the developer package. We are also working on the possibility of making our developer package easily available once iBand+ is officially launched on the market. Thank you for your support!
@Ryan, thank you for your comment. We are indeed working towards making iBand+ a versatile product, step-by-step. We are initially focusing on delivering iBand+ to our supporters with an agreed functionality and then release periodic updates with add-ons to enhance the user-experience!
Didn't grab the Developer Edition initially because I wanted to try out the hardware first, just wondered if there are plans for offering the API/SDK standalone once the devices have shipped. Thanks!
This is an interesting video regarding the stages of sleep what roles they play, and most importantly that clicks (audible sounds) linked up with peaks during a certain sleep stage can actually boost the peaks and help increase memory the next day by flushing out certain toxins that build up while awake. Just wanted to see if this could possibly be implemented as another add-on sort of thing or if this was already was known and in use let me know what you think, thanks
@Jacinto, the estimated delivery of the "popular demand" reward is August 2017. Thank you so much for your support!
Hi, you are supossed to send iBand+ this month right? Everything in time?
@Matthew, we are equally excited to get iBand+ into the hands of our valuable backers. We are working diligently with a goal to deliver the quality product according to the planned roadmap.
Hi! I'm super excited for the Iband release, but I have a small question. Is there any possibility the product could be produced and delivered sooner than the ETA? Or even later? Thanks
@Felix, we will post an update in the last week of every month. The next update will be coming in the next week. We are working hard and are super excited to share the progress with you all then. :)
Can't wait for the next Update.
@Tracy, please check the last update (PKS Update #1) where you will find the link to the survey. Thank you.
Has the survey been emailed out already?
@Jeff, thank you for sharing your situation. We are working hard to make iBand+ a reality and help improve people’s quality of life through better sleep and lucid dreams! Thank you for your support.
@Sleeperx, we have added an extra field (email) in the survey form. Once you fill the survey, the copy will be emailed to that email address. P.S: we have received your information in good order. Thank you.
Greetings and congratulations on bringing this opportunity to us. I am looking forward to the opportunity to try this new device. As a 22 yr Army veteran with PTSD and now a sleep disorder I struggle to get good sleep consistently needing white noise to replicate the sounds I learned to be comfortable during (gunfire, explosions, aircraft departures every 30sec) to the multiple deployments and I suffered a breakdown upon my last return from deployment. I was unable to get my internal biorhythm to reset and I became sleep deprived over a two week period. Very scary time for me and my long-suffering family. Currently I take Medication to keep myself from narcoleptic episodes and it is amazing when it works. I am sincerely hopeful that this device will help me to reduce my need for these meds. Thank you for your hard work.
Hi Creator, may I know how do we see if we have completed the survey or not??
@Jonas, no, it won't affect your pledge in any way! Thank you for your support!
