A new plugin for Lucid Scribe Android… designed to induce lucid dreams from the waking state by improving on the finger-induced lucid dream (FILD) induction technique.

Wake up in the middle of the night and then go back to bed. When you are tired and about to drift off again, launch the app and then place your fingers on the edge of the phone and pretend that you are playing piano or typing on a keyboard. The trick is to move your fingers as gently as possible – it may be necessary to tweak the sensitivity setting… the finger movements reset the countdown until the audio track is played.

Every few minutes, especially when you hear the audio track play, perform a reality check: try to push your index finger through the phone or use your other hand to pinch your nose closed and try to breathe through it.

Lucid Scribe Android - FILD Tool


Added an option to the advanced settings to call the “Lucid Scribe Trigger” task in Tasker (free trial). Simply add a new task called “Lucid Scribe Trigger” and it will be played instead of the audio track. Make sure that “Allow External Access” is checked under Preferences / Misc in Tasker.

Fixed an overflow error in the brainwave display.

I almost have the ThinkGear EEG plugin ready for the Google Play store. It should automatically connect to the MindWave if it has previously been paired under the Android Bluetooth settings. After changing the data source between raw EEG, eSense and brainwaves, the MindWave has to be turned off and on. The logging is not yet complete and will be an extra feature, so don’t do anything fancy. And neither of the algorithms will trigger the audio track yet.

If you have some spare time, please give it a test and let me know if it picks up the data from your ThinkGear EEG device. And please let me know if you find any bugs or strange behavior.

Lucid Scribe now runs on Android and the first plugin is available on Google Play! It measures the amount of change between each frame from the camera. And can be configured to play audio tracks when any motion is detected or when rapid eye movement patterns are detected during a dream: electrooculography (EOG). The idea is to place the phone on a nightstand with the camera facing the bed, then lie on your side facing the nightstand.

The REM detection algorithm is experimental and is currently being investigated over at the Dream View’s Research forum using the desktop webcam version. It will clearly only work during an afternoon nap or with a night-light on. It can be tested by blinking six times in a row, with two seconds between each blink, facing a mirror if you don’t have a forward-facing camera on your phone.
