PROCESS

Survey

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.
