Lucid Dreamer


Lucid Dreamer is essentially a device programmed to detect REM sleep, or the time when dreams become more vivid, and emit low electrical impulses to help you realize that you're dreaming, which then enable you to take control of your dreams. After having their brain stimulated two times per night, for seven nights, approximately three out of five participants became lucid the first night, one participant became lucid on the second night and one participant on the third. The number of nights with at least one lucid dream varied between participants - the maximum was five nights out of seven, and the minimum was two nights out of seven.

Smart Fork

Japan-based Nissin has created a smart fork designed to cancel out noodle-slurping noises, called the "Otohiko fork". It uses a highly sensitive microphone to picks up on the slightest slurping noise, and as soon as they're detected, it's forwarded to an application on your smartphone that triggers a slurp neutralizing sound. The sounds, which can range from a wooshing sound or a musical instrument, like the xylophone, makes the noodle-slurping noises inaudible to other people.

Custom Portable N64

"So this is a more basic system which does not include a breakout box which means this will be a strictly portable, single player system. It will include an expansion pak and built in memory card, but will be a much easier build on the whole not having to worry about the those additional features. All the rough 3D printed parts are done, so the case work can begin as soon as I have a few free minutes," said its creator. Continue reading for more.
