Lucid Dream Machines

Ever since lucid dreaming entered the public eye in the 1980s, there have been many attempts to create the ultimate lucid dream machine. The idea is to make lucid dreaming as easy as possible - so that anyone can do it at will.

The most popular type of lucid dreaming device is an eye mask which emits visual and audio cues to the would-be lucid dreamer while they are asleep. Often this means you see flashing lights in your dreamscape, which remind you that you are dreaming. Some offer audio cues as well.

The following are my reviews of the major lucid dream machines and related technologies I have evaluated to date. Please note if you have photosensitive epilepsy, lucid dream masks that emit light are not recommended for you.

Lucid Dream Masks

Lucid dream masks may help you achieve your goal of becoming lucid on a nightly basis. They provide an artificial aid to supplement your own efforts in dream recall and reality checking. Just a word of caution: no lucid dream machine is a magic bullet for lucid dreaming and won't train you to become a better natural lucid dreamer. So don't rush out to buy one until you understand exactly how they achieve results.
