In this episode I confess to my deteriorating sleep quality and it’s cascading affect on my dreaming practice. Sleep trackers rant, plus update on the gadget prototype.

This was the first time I’ve heard an Audible sponsor interlude on a podcast that wasn’t very annoying.
I totally agree with you that falling back asleep is the best feeling way of falling asleep. Add to that the thought of “I don’t have to get up for work yet. I do have enough time left to fall back asleep. I’, free to do whatever I want. And I want to sleep.” That’s one of the best feelings I ever had.
Don’t think you shouldn’t record an episode because you don’t have lucid dreams right now! It doesn’t take away any interestingness or other qualities of the podcast. You still know what you’re talking about.
That was an interesting review of all the sleep tracking devices. Disappointing maybe, but all the more interesting. I would hope that the Zeo is the most accurate one, because that’s what I’m using and it’s the best I have for experiments to determine what sleep stage I’m in.
Can’t you let others test the prototypes of your device? I’m pretty sure there would be people who would love to help you with that.
I see you around the interwebs, thanks for listening, for the comment and the kind words. After reading a less than positive review on iTunes, it is nice to get some encouragement. And i’m glad i managed to do a not too annoying ad read, i’m planning on keeping them concise and make it more about the recommendations of books, which I have plenty of. There are so many good audiobooks and plenty about lucid dreaming or sleep.
We are upgrading to prototype to be a bit more comfortable, but i have a backup tester in case I can’t get proper sleep with it still in it’s current version.
I’m thinking of building a zeo style sleep tracker, and i’m surprised no one else have, but if the Aurora is shipping soon, it might allow for this functionality as well.
A successor for the Zeo would be great. I would love to have something like that, with the ability to get raw EEG data over BLE built in, and possibly a better, but more importantly open source, sleep stage classification algorithm. That’s my biggest wish for a sleep related device.
