- The Lucid Dreaming version of ZMax is a more affordable version of our ZMax Total package. It contains the subset of features most important for Lucid Dreaming.
- You can scroll through the product images above to see a side by side comparison of the Total package and the Lucid Dreaming pack.
- ZMax LD has the only true EEG based REM detection offered by any device both consumer or medical. It is the result of years of R&D in artifact modeling and detection, and multi-sensor pattern recognition. This is the reason its price is much higher than consumer devices built by non-experts, which will not detect REM reliably and whose operation cannot verified. ZMax shows you, in the morning, the entire picture of what happened throughout the night. It shows when it detected REM, and when it decided to stimulate (this is seen in one of the pictures above)
- When ZMax detects that your brain is in the Rapid Eye Movement sleep state (having a dream), ZMax will stimulate you using a somewhat configurable stimulus of light and vibrations. It can also play back any sound on your PC, or even activate an application (for instance an EXE file that controls a custom peripheral developed by you).
- Until end of March 2021, for WOLD (World of Lucid Dreaming) e-mail list subscribers only: with every purchase we will review one recording (night) of your choice, and provide a free assessment of your sleep EEG phenotype, recording quality, and REM detection/stimulation results. This assessment is provided by a ZMax engineer with a background in sleep analysis, bioinformatics and biomedical engineering. This offer is only for orders paid by Apr 1st. Recording must be received by Apr 1st as well.
- This is a Windows only product (Windows 8 or above required). It will run on any semi-modern PC, even a laptop from 4-5 years ago.
- Please do not be misled by Microsoft XBox's beautiful commercial. Hypnodyne ZMax does not record your dreams in visual format nor can anything else. It only records your body movement, heart rate, eye movements and brain waves. These cannot be used to reconstruct visuals. Fortunately it doesn't matter, for lucid dreaming. All you need is REM detection and stimulation!
- This is not a bluetooth device. ZMax transmits several channels of high resolution biosignals, with a miniaturized battery that must last the whole night. Therefore ZMax has a custom (proprietary) wireless protocol and hardware, with a dongle that must be connected to a PC to receive data. Ideally, a laptop PC must be near your bed for ZMax to work (if you have a desktop a couple meters away it will most likely also work, and you can separately buy a USB extension cable to have the antenna high above the PC to improve link quality). The software dims the screen for you when you press a button, so that your sleep is not disturbed.
- ZMax is the most fully featured and sophisticated system for Lucid Dreaming available. It is the only sleep wearable used in sleep research to collect high quality data.
- This is not a one-button operation device. It is not Remee or NovaDreamer or Zeo. You should make sure to read our ZMax for Lucid Dreaming Product page in its entirety, and watch the youtube videos on that page to understand what you're getting into and make sure the level of sophistication is interesting to you and not daunting. The youtube videos also teach you about your sleep and explain the significance of what you will see in a ZMax recording.
- ZMax uses custom solid gel electrode patches. Conductive fabric looks good in photographs and is convenient, but it can never give a similar quality as low impedance Ag/AgCl gel. Ag/AgCl (Silver chloride) is the only material used in professional recording in polysomnography. Additionally gel feels better on the skin than metallic woved fabric because it is cooler and softer. The LD pack comes with 10 electrode patches. Each patch can be reused for months without noticeable loss in signal quality. However since they are made of gel, you may want to use a new one every 14 nights or so for hygiene and so they look nice and new. In that case, 10 patches will last 140 days.
- Please note the price is 1200 EUR including shipping, but for items shipping within the EU and if do not have a EU company VAT number, we must add 20% for VAT. Our shopping cart tries to intelligently show your price depending on your settings at the top of this page but that calculated price does not supersede our price stated here in case of any glitches, incorrect viewing settings or using a VPN.
- This is a product that is applied to the body and collects sweat for hours at a time each night. There are no refunds. Therefore, again please familiarize yourself with the software and its capabilities before ordering.
- We cannot help with learning how to lucid dream.
- No hardware can produce a lucid dream by itself. You must train yourself to perform dream checks throughout the day in response to seeing lights or feeling tactile sensations. ZMax can stimulate you with light, sound and vibrations when it detects that you are having a dream. Then, in response to this stimulus, you will perform the dream check in the dream, realize you are dreaming, and become lucid. There is work involved in creating this habit.
- 2 Channels high quality EEG, data is saved in EDF format (standard in polysomnography)
- Low impedance custom gel electrode patches provide far better results than fabric electrodes
- Raw PPG waveform can be processed to obtain heart rate
- 3 axis accelerometer reveals movements and head position
- Proprietary Hypnodyne real-time Rapid Eye Movement sleep detection
Please note that due to semiconductor shortages the price includes a 50 eur surcharge throughout 2022 and 2023 reflecting our higher input costs.
