A new app that's being called 'the future of our dreams' debuted last week. Dream: On is the first app to have the capabilities to control your dreams and record your REM patterns. But that's not the only thing Dream: On can do!

Referred to as “the APP to influence your dreams,” it will detect your sleeping pattern, monitor when you go into the dream state, and play a soundscape that you picked out to get you to the dream you want to be in.

Not all sleep is the same, most people will have several dreams throughout the night during their REM sleep state and this APP is geared towards determining your REM state and giving your subconscious a push into a customized dreaming direction.  Don’t expect the app to work on your first night; it will take a couple uses to get that REM state figured out to allow Dream:ON to take your to your happy place.

"We have created a new way of carrying out mass participation experiments. We still know relatively little about the science of dreaming and this app may provide a real breakthrough in changing how we dream, and record and track those dreams,” said Professor Richard Wiseman, the application’s creator.


Once you’re done dreaming, the app will wake you up with an alarm, and greet you with a graph of your movement during the night. Be careful of who you decide to let in your dreams, because the app also has a feature that allows you to tag the friends from Facebook that appear in it. You can also post a description about your dream in the “Dream Bank” so that you can keep track of the progress and contribute to others who have done the same.

Still a skeptic? Download the Dream:ON APP and join the largest dream experiment in the nation.  The possibilities for your dreams are endless.
