speculating alternative realities





Dream Kit


Inspired by Japanese Animation Paprika as well as the film Inception, Dream Kit is a speculative design assisting people get fully controlled of their dreams. With the help from optical brain scanning/imaging, EEG, fMRI, it is possible that dreams can be manipulated. This project invites people to imagine the future that they can manage, document and even share their dreams with others.

This project was originally created in 2016 and recently (2020) scientists from MIT Dream Lab have created a glove-like device called Dormio, which is an open source wearable device that can track and interact with dreams in a number of ways — including, hopefully, giving you new control over the content of your dreams.
