What is Oneirics?

How many times have you ever dreamt of flying? Of viewing the sunrise from outer space? Of being able to time travel?

My name is Tony and I have been researching the brain and sleep for 15 years. The last 3 years, my team and I have been developing several devices to help people control their dreams.

Controlling Dreams is the next step in virtual reality. It is not just playing a game on a screen. The way to control dreams is called "lucid dreaming".

Lucid dreaming is a complete Universe where you can live, experiment and feel with all your senses. A lot of films have already shown us how this Universe can be: The Matrix, Inception, The Thirteenth Floor ....

With Oneirics devices, we give you all tools to help you to achieve lucid dreams. Oneirics is the best and ultimate solution to have Lucid Dreams. With Oneirics you can achieve lucid dreams in a fast and easy way. During testing, 84% of the test subjects achieved lucid dreams in less than 15 days.

Thanks to the eye tracking sensors you can also communicate with the outside world from your dreams. Imagine being able to change your social networks status from your dreams! (For more information please read the Scientific Explanation section.)

What are Lucid Dreams?

For centuries, different cultures and key figures have experimented with lucid dreaming: Hindus, Buddhists, Shamans from Africa, classic Greek Philosophers like Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, Leonardo da Vinci during the Renaissance and these days, even NASA engineers.

- For often, when one is asleep, there is something in consciousness which declares that what then presents itself is but a dream. - Aristotle

- Dreams feel real while we're in them. It's only when we wake up that we realize something was actually strange.Inception

- All that we see or seem, is but a dream within a dream.Edgar Allan Poe   

- Dreams are more real than reality itself, they're closer to the self. - Gao Xingjian 

According to the World of lucid dreaming, Lucid Dreaming is the scientifically proven ability to become conscious while dreaming - to "wake up" and take active control of your dreams. In this heightened mental state you can:

  • Explore your dreamworld with total clarity, where everything you see, hear, touch, taste and smell can be as authentic as reality.

  • Fulfill any fantasy like flying, having sex, base jumping, shapeshifting, time traveling, meeting your hero and visiting other worlds.

  • Overcome personal issues like fears, phobias, anxieties, nightmares, past traumas and recurring dreams.

  • Tap into your creative genius by creating music, seeking artistic imagery and conversing with your dreaming inner self.

The difficulty when someone wants to control their dreams is that months of training are required. With Oneirics, you can achieve it in just a few days!

Oneirics Devices

Oneirics is composed of three devices:

  • The Oneirics Trainer

A Smart Bracelet that will train you during the day to achieve lucid dreaming. You can use the Oneirics Trainer by itself or with the Oneirics Mask.

  • The Oneirics Mask

A mask with artificial intelligence that will monitor you during the night. The Oneirics Mask will coordinate with the Smart Bracelet to increase the number of lucid dreams. Furthermore you will be able to communicate with the Oneirics Mask from your dreams to report that you are having a lucid dream.

  • The Oneirics Diary

An application for your Smartphone that will act as your dream diary. 

How it works

  The Oneirics Trainer

 
 

The first dream control trainer in the world, it will help you take control of your dreams in a very quick and easy way.

  • Personal Trainer
 

The key to lucid dreaming is to recognize when you are actually dreaming.

During the day the Oneirics Trainer will let you know when you have to check whether you are dreaming.  In a short time you will create the necessary habit of controlling your dreams.

At night, the Oneirics Trainer will notify you while you are dreaming and you will automatically remember to check it. In this way you can achieve lucid dreaming.

  • Bluetooth Connection
 

Designed with Bluetooth’s Low Energy, the Oneirics Trainer can be configured from your Smartphone and it has a battery life of 21 days.

  • Oneirics Trainer Features

  The Oneirics Mask

The Oneirics Mask, the most sophisticated device ever created to control dreams.

The problems that other available masks have are that they don't train you, they need to be configured manually and they don't detect sleep phases precisely. In the end, they don't get you lucid. They just wake you up.

The Oneirics Mask will communicate with the Oneirics Trainer when you are in the REM phase to let you know that you are dreaming.

Thanks to the training you will have done during the day with the Oneirics Trainer, your brain will associate the cue to be dreaming. In this way you will control your dreams in a fast and easy way!

The Oneirics Mask is able to send you light alerts, vibration alerts, sounds and music to let you know that you are dreaming.

  • Artificial Inteligence

Using Artificial Intelligence, the Oneirics Mask is automatically configured each night. An adaptive algorithm will keep looking for optimal cues. These cues change periodically so that your brain never gets used to them.

  • Bluetooth Connection
 

Designed with Bluetooth Smart Ready, The Onericis Mask  will coordinate with the Smart Bracelet and your Smartphone to emit cues to let you know that you are dreaming. In this way you will increase the possibility of lucid dreaming.

  • Eye Tracking Sensors

With four ultrasensitive tracking sensors, the Oneirics Mask will precisely detect your REM phase and you will be able to communicate whilst you are sleeping to notify that you are having a lucid dream.

  • Smart Alarm

The Oneirics Mask wakes you up at an optimal time within the timeframe that you have indicated. In this way you will wake up better rested. Using all of its sensors and thanks to its advanced, adaptive REM-detection algorithm, it will always know the sleep phase you are in. 

  • Oneirics Mask Sensors

The Oneirics Mask has the most sophisticated and sensitive sensors, opening up a world of possibilities to the monitoring and control of your dreams.

 
  • Oneirics Mask Features

These are some of the features that the Oneirics Mask offers:

 

  The Oneirics Diary

As important as your daytime training is the analysis of your dreams.

The Oneirics Diary is an application that can show you all the statistics collected from the Mask at night. You can describe the dreams that you had and whether or not you were able to control them.

 

This will help you to improve the control of your dreams, progressively remembering more and more details about your dreams.

The Oneirics Diary will be available for Android and iOS.

  • Social Networks
 

Oneirics can be connected to the Internet through your Smartphone. Imagine being able to change your Facebook status from your dreams: Having a Lucid Dream!

What's Inside?

Oneirics Trainer is built to last. Its mechanical structure protects the printed circuit board. For us to fit so much into such a small space, we really had to get creative with the design. 

With Oneirics Mask, our main effort was to make a comfortable sleep mask and keep it simple for mass production. The resulting design is something we think is beautiful, both inside and outside."

Scientific Explanation

Dr Stephen LaBerge at Stanford University became famous for publishing an experiment about lucid dreams in 1983. LaBerge did his doctorate thesis on lucid dreaming. Today, he runs intensive workshops and dream experiments at The Lucidity Institute and his classic book Exploring The World of Lucid Dreaming remains a best-seller on the subject.

 LaBerge recorded a set of pre-determined eye movement signals from his volunteer, in a lucid dream state under laboratory conditions. The volunteer simply looked in different directions in his lucid dream - eg left, right, left, right, left - causing his eyes to mimic the action in reality. By doing this, he was able to communicate from the dreamworld to the waking world, in real time.

The Oneirics Mask with its eye tracking sensors will record eye movement. When the mask detects a predetermined eye movement, it will communicate with your smartphone to change your social networks status if you want.

How We Got Here

For the past three years, we've been heads down designing, prototyping, coding, testing, experimenting, redesigning and rebuilding.

Where We Are Now

Throughout the three years of development, we have seen how similar projects have appeared. We did not want to launch our products until we were sure that they are the ultimate solution to all our customer’s needs.

 Stretch Goals

This is our initial goal. Because after three years of development, we need your help to start mass production.

Because nobody knows if the world of dreams is another reality. We hope to answer these questions with statistics and research:

  • Are there worldwide dream patterns about the important events?

  • Does Shared Dreaming Exist?

         You can share dreams with your friends to know whether they had the same dream.

  • Are Premonitory Dreams Real?

         Help us to store thousands of dreams for a research. Because throughout history a lot of people have dreamt of the same event before it occurred. For example, the sinking of the Titanic.

Our goal is to continue this research:

Induction of self awareness in dreams through frontal low current stimulation of gamma activity

And take lucid dreaming to the next level! We need to raise $2 million to expand our team to do this well. Also, we need laboratory equipment to control all values. 

There will be a number of challenges, but we are sure that we can overcome them!

Rewards

Our deepest gratitude goes to Stephen Laberge. Without all his work, it wouldn’t have been possible.

Risks and challenges

As with any project with Electronic components, we face several key risks and challenges.

ELECTRONIC COMPONENT SUPPLY

We noticed that some projects encounter unexpected problems when moving from a prototype into production. Like computers, the electronic world changes very quickly. A lot of components become obsolete overnight. That’s why we have worked very closely with our electronics suppliers to be sure that this won't happen to us.
Our main supplier is PANASONIC. We trust in their quality and production capacity.

MASS PRODUCTION AND TESTS

Switching from prototypes to global production can take a while, especially if any of the manufacturers fail at some point. We have taken this into consideration and have been in conversation with different manufacturers to ensure we have different options should any extreme case arise.
Our main production line is located in Shenzhen, the same place that Apple makes their iphones. We think that in this way we can mitigate production problems.

FIRMWARE BUGS

After hundreds of tests, some bugs can go unnoticed. For this reason we have made all our devices Firmware upgradable. This also gives us the possibility to add new features in the future!
