About

Feel free to contact us, comment and ask questions. Our products are oriented to end users, not to receive excessive profits.

  • If you have trouble waking up in the morning
  • If there are problems with inducing lucid dreams
  • If you are curious to know how exactly you sleep
  • If you want to get better sleep

Guidy will accurately measure your sleeping process. With this information, you will be able to optimize your daily schedule to gain an even number of sleep cycles without interruptions.

Initially we designed Guidy simply as a sleep tracker with a smart alarm function, until one day our co-designer offered to add an extra function that would send reminders for lucid dreaming. At that moment he was the only one in our team, who practiced lucid dreaming and had any knowledge regarding this matter.

Here is his review as the first beta tester:

"I started to practice lucid dreaming 6 years ago. I achieved great strides, remembered everything after waking up and could easily induce lucid dreaming. But it all ended after I got a new job with night shifts. And even after I changed job again, with the a normal schedule, I never  induced lucid dreaming again.

On the first day of using Guidy I felt nothin, the brightness was set at 30%. Next day, brightness was set to maximal, I was woken up at 2 am. On the third day, I set the brightness to 65%, increased the number of flashes and reduce their duration. And I did it! It was the first time I had a lucid dreaming for the last two years. The same loud hum and vibration in my whole body. The same experience, which I had over two years ago.

After that day, we finally confirmed the possibility to use Guidy for lucid dreaming.''

The most reliable and accurate way of measuring sleep cycle is to use  electrodes, attached to your face and head. But all these wires and sensors will not let you sleep comfortably every night. That is why we use a low power IR optocoupler for measurement. 

For additional reliability we added MEMS accelerometer with gyroscope. This allows Guidy to detect a REM-cycle with a 100% accuracy.

Great results have also been made in software development. We have spent a lot of time and effort to get the most effective way of math processing and communication protocols in our application. It enables to transmit data in real time or even save it on flash.

Our best idea in the whole development of Guidy is the ability to modify notification settings in a wide range of features. That allows you to adjust these settings  for your sensitivity, so that you never miss them. This is how Guidy transcends all other sleep masks.

Here is raw signal from the sensor:

  • Comfortable, high quality sleep mask, with a fitted shape that adapts itself to each facial bone structure and nose anatomy.
  • 32-bit high perfomance microcontroller reads values from sensors and analyzes them in real time. After all calculations it will write a clean log of the entire sleep cycle
  • Bluetooth 4.0 technology for wireless synchronization and additional sound notifications on your mobile phone
  • Rechargeable LiPO battery, with LED status indicator, provides three days operation on fully charged battery.
  • Ultra bright LEDs with adjustable intensity, right in the middle of pads for eyes. They are powerful enough to wake you up, so that you will never miss the notifications

in prototyping

and design

Now we are ready to start manufacturing. However, it is possible only with your support!

Risks and challenges

Guidy is a product with up to date components which where released in 2013 and 2014. Using these kind of components we can ensure optimal working performance.

Our team members who are skilled in manufacturing and shipping have already been in China to chose the main manufacturers and key suppliers. We also checked the suppliers stock to ensure the delivery of requested pieces.

Quality is something that needs close attention in any manufacturing process. These last few years we have been aiming to reach a level of the highest quality and an on time delivery for the first production run of Guidy.

We promise you to keep our campaign transparent and we will openly communicate with our supporters, we will share all our efforts, the progress we make and the issues that might arise.
