Demand (apparently) was high after the novadreamer was discontinued. Now somebody has worked with the Lucidity Institute to create a new novadreamer.
The novadreamer detected REM and flashed lights. You would have conditioned yourself to recognise those lights as a signal that you were dreaming. Therefore, you would notice the lights and get lucid!
OK, to get to the part which most people find important:
DreamMaker: $200 each for first 100, then $349
DreamMaker Pro: $500 each for first 100, then $1000
EWLD is included as well as documentation for the DreamMaker.
Apparently the DreamMaker can move you to an Alpha state and then turn on the REM detection. The old novadreamer essentially detected the actual eye movement. The dreammaker also measures facial tension and uses both of these factors to detece REM.
Also, it can play a tape when it detects REM. This might be a useful reminder of what you want to do, or it can help you compare dream time to real time, or it can be used like self-hypnosis (but probably to less effect).
The site isn’t very clear about why the Pro version is so much better. It has a Light and Sound machine, whatever that is.
I found it through the bottom ads.
