AN APP TO DREAM ABOUT YOUR LOVERS
Concept, iOS Developing, UX/UI Design, logo design
Dreamdate is an app to direct dreams while sleep by identifying when the user is dreaming and playing music to effect the dream. An app will play music which relates to users memory which is installed in advance.
Swift programming, acceleration sensor
Someone in long distant relationship who seek to dream about significant others
- People with stress who seek to dream about relaxing/happy memories during sleep
- People who wants to dream about specific idols, passed away family members
How it works
- Open DreamDate before sleeping and chose music to play
- Put it aside the pillow
- Calibrate ( 10 sec )
- Start sleeping
- DreamDate will start monitoring users sleep stage using motion sensor
- When REM sleep is identified the music will start playing
- User write a dream diary after waking up
I took a survey to see if there is a need for dreamdate app, if people even remember dream, what kind of dream people are wishing to see
Experimenting with different sensing type
Prototype 1 . Did not work because it was impossible to make it wireless Prototype 2 . It was impossible to sleep with the brain wave Prototype 3 . Using kinect, I could not track body movement really well, also it is not realistic to install kinect to users Prototype 4. iPhone is the best way to install it to many users and it is less burden to set up.
Experimenting with different Actuation type
Considering how to influence dreamers
I executed an experiment aroma vs sound to see which has more effect to dreams.
Turns out that smell has no effect to dream but sound do.
My first attempt to code an app
