How Does Somni Work?

What is the device? What are the motion sensors with signals for? Rapid eye movement (REM) is a sleep phase where a person experiences vivid and memorable dreams. During this phase, a sleeping person's eyes make intense, random movements while exploring the dream world. The Somni mask tracks REM sleep with motion sensors. It also causes lucid dreams by using audiovisual methods without interrupting your sleep during other stages. You will see and hear the signals received from the mask in your dream.

The Somni mask works strictly according to its algorithm to accurately track REM sleep. To use it, you put it on before bed and press a button. When you wake, you can use the application to see when you were in REM sleep. The mask tracks head movement, meaning the device will not begin eye-tracking until you are completely asleep.

How do you lucid dream with Somni?

The Somni mask creates a particular dream for you through the audio loaded onto the device's memory. Before you go to bed, turn on the mask and put on the headphones. The mask will automatically turn on this audio during REM sleep, and you will see a dream corresponding to the audio. By default, only optimal sounds are loaded onto the mask, such as water splashing with a voice telling you that you are dreaming. You will see these cues in your dream, and your mind will have a lucid dream related to these sounds.
