Dormio — A Hand Interface for Sleep Stage Detection

Sleep is a forgotten country of the mind: A vast majority of our technologies are built for our waking state, even though a third of our lives are spent asleep. Dormio interfaces with Hypnagogia, the state of consciousness between wake and sleep where we dream before falling fully unconscious. Edison, Dalí and Tesla famously napped holding a steel metal ball to access this state and augment their creativity. We modernize this technique using sensors that detect Heart Rate Variability, Muscle Tone and Electrodermal Activity, sending real-time stage information out to actuators which influence and extend early stage dreams.
