      Yeah, that mode will appear in 1.1 . I'm really excited about that, the wristband mode may be able to detect dream onset 10 minutes before dream awakening. I'm doing testing now, and it looks very promising.

      Sweet. Do you have an ETA for 1.1 and/or your wristband?

      I will submit the update for review on the 29th or 30th. It may take up to 10 days for Apple to approve the update. Their app store approval team was on vacation from the 22nd until 29th, so there maybe quite a lot of work that piled up over the holidays.

      In terms of the wristband, I do not have the ETA on when it will be available, I'll see how the wristband does in testing, I'm finally able to run my best dream detection algorithm AND have the app in a state where I can get all the test support data to further refine the algorithm. Before I could run the algorithm, but had verifying the test results was very tedious. Now it's easier.

      The version 1.1 has a lot of stuff to be excited about, I'm learning something new about my sleep every day, and I've been looking at my sleep graphs for several months. This kind of information would be brand for many lucid dreamers, who never had access to this kind of data about their sleep before!

      I can't wait! I really need to get a hold of a USB power cord for my iPod before the update comes. Do you have an Amazon affiliate link for one that plugs into the wall and has a long enough cord that I can buy from?

      EDIT: Maybe something like this would work? http://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics--.../dp/B001TH7GUU

      Thanks! I submitted the update for review today.

      You need this charger: Amazon.com: iPhone 3G, 3GS, 4 USB Wall Adapter Charger with USB to Dock Connector cable: Cell Phones & Accessories

      Here's the extension that you posted. I must say that sleeping with live power cables attached to your body is a little bit hazardous :/

      This is the one that came with my iPhone, and works great, it has twice the power of regular USB wall chargers that I've seen before.

      Well then do you have to use an iPhone for Wristband mode?

      When I was testing the app with an iPod, I would run it in the mattress mode for 3-4 hours, then switch to wristband mode and put it on. iPod physically has 1/2 of the battery capacity of an iPhone, so iPhone users are at a big advantage there. It is very likely that iPhone 4 is the only device on the market that can run an app like that overnight, when mounted on a wrist


      PS. I just have to say it, I love your avatar

      Guys, I'm sorry to admit that, but there's a bug in the version 1.0 which may prevent audio from playing in the custom mode. I strongly recommend you to upgrade to 1.1 when it comes out. This is why some of you may not be hearing the reminder. The version 1.1 has audio bugs fixed, so the app actually plays.

      Thank you for the sales copy comment, they are really hard to write for mediocre products, so I made sure this is not a mediocre product

      btw, tonight was my first true success with the app (DILD):

      I found myself stumbling in darkness, using my cell phone for light. Somehow I became aware that I may be seen by someone else and attacked, so I took cover in some grass. Suddenly the darkness was lifted, and I was left staring at a WTF crystal clear image of clear blue sky, some town line and really intensely green cars driving by. This was THE most clear dream image that I can remember in months, and I can recall 4-7 dreams per night. I observed a construction crew moving to bulldoze the spot where I was staying, so I moved, did some levitation, walked through wall and all the while was amazed at the clarity of visuals and audio. I proceeded to walk around for a while, and woke up just before a really exciting part involving me and a girl + a double of a girl on which I had a crush in high school

      This may be related to a similar experiment that I'm doing right now using Vitamin B6 water enhancer, but it may be too early to say definitively. What I can say is that my dreams from last night have been very deep with a lot of WTF quality to them, and had a companion DC in most of them.

      Here's the app's log from last night:

      10:23:46: Presenting reminder
      10:25:47: Reminder has been played
      10:27:11: singularity epoch: 85
      10:30:00: battery level: 45 power unplugged
      10:30:01: battery level: 45 power unplugged
      10:30:51: trying to deliver reminder
      10:30:51: Passing reminder to delivery system
      10:30:51: Within deliver reminder
      10:30:51: Requesting reminder with delay: 2 minutes
      10:30:51: Deliver Reminder Finished
      10:32:10: singularity epoch: 86
      10:32:16: You reported Lucid Dream recall

      10:32:50: Presenting reminder
      10:34:51: Reminder has been played

      PS. the app played 23 reminders last night in wristband mode. each reminder tells me that the "trick is: you gotta realize that you are dreaming in the first place. You gotta be able to recognize it.. You gotta be able to ask yourself: "Hey man, is this a dream"?

      This means that I heard this 23 times last night , for the past few nights it played less, somewhere between 6 and 8, but here the sleep pattern was altered, and I put the app in a custom mode, resulting in more reminders.

      Nice! I thought there may have been a problem with audio, but wasn't sure, since I was asleep, haha

      Good that it's fixed though. Just need this damned wall-to-usb to come back in stock at the store now....

      Used the beginner mode last night, I remember one time it played a reminder thing, I think I was just waking up from a dream when it went off. I tried a DEILD but nothing happened.

      I have been using this for the last few nights. But both nights the iPod either slid under my pillow or fell off my bed. I have a fix for this ready but anyways.

      Ev, when you are using Singularity mode, are you supposed to move the black marker to when you think you will fall asleep? Why can't the app just detect when? And are the three reminders played at set times according to the dial or are they played whenever the app detects you are in REM? And also, how did the wristband mode play 23 if there are only three reminders on the dial?

      Lastly, whenever the app is removed from the task bar, the icons in the black bar, which I set to Singularity, then Dreams, then History, or something like that, revert back to Singularity, Beginner, Help, etc.

      Tank,
      You need to align the black marker with your bedtime for the singularity custom mode to work. If you go to sleep at midnight, align the black marker to point at midnight. If you go to sleep at 23:00, align the marker with that time. This way, the subsequent markers align with your sleep cycles. Each subsequent marker is an audio reminder that will be played when the app detects dreaming. In the version 1.1, each reminder may be played multiple times. The markers allow you to create custom reminders for different sleep cycles, because earlier sleep cycles are shorter, later sleep cycles are lighter. this way you can customize the reminder intensity for your sleep pattern.

      Beginner and DEILD mode only play the first reminder that you can see after the black marker (2nd sleep cycle) and play it for all sleep cycles.

      The app has played the same reminder multiple times during that night , but there were up to 3 different reminder types.

      I'm very excited to say that version 1.2 of the app will let you search and filter your dream journal by dreamsigns. Both the history and the dreams list will be searchable.

      Here's my attempt to analyze my rather broad dreamsign, which is being in Russia. I grew up there, and keep seeing dreams about random locations from there, as well as a repeating dreamsign of being in my middle school in Russia.

      each green marker is a dream.
      each blue marker is a lucid dream.
      Black markers on the right side represent the amount of time that it took to fall asleep.
      Black markers on the left side represent absolute time of the first sleep cycle start.
      Orange markers on the right side represent total sleep duration pattern
      Orange markers on the left side represent absolute awakening time.

      Each marker on the right side is planted at the time the event was recorded.
      Each marker on the right side is planted as number of hours after getting into bed.


      Now that this is out of the way, do you see the pattern? It is coming and going, but it is undeniable that the dreamsign manifests itself as a pattern. What is causing this to happen, I do not know yet, but this is very exciting

      The black markers with a green line through them represent my choices of bedtime. On some days I push the bedtime back by 1 sleep cycle to accomplish something. This usually means that I have something to do, and I feel enough energy to do it. (I work very late).

      The orange circles with a yellow line through them represent my pattern of rise times. You can see in the top right image how the pattern evolves over several days. Notice that Jan2 is about a week from the previous short sleep duration. This pattern is called circaseptian, and may be related to depression.

      There are multiple circadian (24 hour) patterns within the body: adrenaline, cortisol, leptin, glucose levels and insulin, as well as testosterone. It is possible that the dreamsigns are related to some of these hormones. In general, the dreamsign manifests itself when I'm more aware than usual and pay more attention to my dreaming than normal. I've been using the Singularity App to deliver reminders at just about all of those days, and this may be the result.

      With singularity experience you get the same tools for your sleep analysis !

      One quick question. How do I read the clock to align the black marker at night?

      I have no idea what times are like 13, 14, 15 etc.

      Had more success last night!
      App woke me up during a dream, might have been too close to the end again though.
      Unfortunately I think I missed one of them. And of course the battery doesn't last past two reminders. So I only got one, but it was very close to being enough to have a lucid.
      If I didn't go to sleep so late, I think it would've worked beautifully.



      rynkrt3 - It is 24 hour time. 13 is 1:00pm, 14 is 2:00pm etc.

      The orange arrow points to the time in 24 hour format. If you are not familiar with that format, simply align the black marker with the orange arrow when you are going to bed.

      Why do you have to bother aligning the black marker with the current time if the app can figure out the time by itself?

      I think the idea is that you never want to move the black line, it helps you maintain a sleep scheduale.

      Well what if it is a weekend or something and you stay up a bit later than usual? Why can't the app just grab the current time when you start it and align the dial accordingly? If it did that, you could setup a ghost dial which would when oyu should go to sleep to maintain a good sleep schedule.

      In the beginner mode, the app does not care about the marker's location. In the singularity mode, the order in which the reminders are selected depends on the location of the black marker. The black arrow aligns with the black marker indicating when you went to sleep last night. The silver arrow shows when you stopped the app last time.

      In future releases, once I put smart alarms in, the location of the black marker would help indicate when the smart alarm would be played. I'm still trying to determine the best way to do this without adding extra complexity. This is why the dial does not align itself automatically yet.

      And yes, the idea is that the less you have to move the black marker the better your sleep schedule is. It takes your body time to adjust and synchronize it's multiple internal biological clocks, and the process cannot be accomplished overnight. Automatically aligning the dial with whenever you go to sleep would make it seem like you have control over this aspect of your body, while in reality you do not.

      Today was another success of what I would consider a reminder integrating itself into the dream's content:

      06:01:43: Reminder has been played
      06:01:47: singularity epoch: 57
      06:07:23: You reported Dream Recall

      Dream # 707

      Clarity[0.7] Control:[0.0]
      I had a dream about war, fighting, assaulting a beach, exchanging fire, advancing alone. A ruin. Took position there. Sewing through a wall. Shot the grenade launcher at the enemy. Later- a window open, keeping the window closed. Ji, playing, he shot some dude on my team with an ak47. An interlude- sleeping on a stiff bed, my devices do not work. Saw iPods and an iPhone. They pop up an error message The bed is too hard for them to work properly. Getting off the bed and back on the beach. Awareness of the scenery. Thinking how beautiful it is. Father talks about plants on the beach. Each, how they are significant. Beautiful blue water, sand and sun. I look around and see a glacier and mountains in the distance and am fascinated by how this could be. Walruses and yetis on the glacier. Trying to estimate the distance. Telling father what I see, asking if he sees that. Change- a weird museum, ornamental statues they grow in one dimension and diminish in another. the human height is right in the middle. They are ornamental bongs from past civilizations. The culture was of smokers. Seeing my grandma with an android looking phone. The museum curator appears and smells of weed. Wanting to ask her a question about the meaning of this. Dream changes and I wake up
