An App Creates a Community of Dreamers

Shadow - recording dreams (branded image)

Hunter Lee Soik and partners have produced Shadow, an app for iPhone and Android devices that facilitates the recording of dreams, plus archives and analyzes the data it retrieves.

SHADOW is a stylish alarm clock that uses a series of escalating alarms that maximize dream recall and make waking up easier by taking you through your hypnopompic state (the transition from asleep to awake) much slower than a standard alarm clock. Once you’re awake, SHADOW prompts you to record your dreams—you can speak them directly into the app, and SHADOW will transcribe the text and pull out the keywords. With your permission, this dream content is then shared with the database, which organizes the global dream data and identifies major themes and trends.”

You can find the Shadow community on Facebook. There is also a TED talk with Hunter Lee Soik here.
