iBand Lucid Dream Review
What is the iBand+?
The iBand is a new lucid dreaming wearable device (also called the Iband plus) created by a company in Amsterdam, Netherlands. It’s a fairly small device and can be comfortable worn by the dreamer:
The device comes with a set of pillow headphones (more on those later) and a smartphone app which links up to the device and talks to it.
Much like other masks such as the Remee and Neuroon, the device shows you a series of lights and colors (reaches inside your dreams) in order to hopefully make you become lucid. This is NOT like the LucidCatcher which actually directly stimulates your brainwaves.
How does the iBand+ work
Basically, iBand+ works by detecting through the use of an EEG (brain sensor) whether you’re in REM sleep or not. As you probably know, most if not all lucid dreams happen during REM sleep (Rapid eye movement sleep) and so this is the best time to attempt lucid dreaming.
The iBand+ Uses an app and a set of clever microchips and technology embedded in the device to work out the you’re in your REM sleep, and is then plays audio visual cues.
The cues can be flashing lights, flashing coloured lights, sounds played through the pillow speakers or a combination of all of them, in varying order and duration. You can change settings like this depending on what works best for you.
iBand+ review summary
All in all, the device is a great start for beginners, but as I said before, make sure you go through a course of some sort so you know how to lucid dream before you try this mask. You’ll get better results, trust me.
