Dream Machine

Tell Shadow your wildest dreams and it'll read your mind


Turns out, 95% of dreams are forgotten before you even leave the bed. 
Well, that's if you believe Hunter Lee Soik, creative consultant on Jay Z's Watch the Throne tour. He's also a psychonaut and the inventor of Shadow, a new app that'll read the deepest depths of your mind.
Perhaps that sounds like hyperbole. At face value, Shadow is merely an alarm clock app. But it's so much more than that.
First, Shadow slowly wakes you up with gently escalating alarms. It then immediately asks you to record your dream experiences either by speaking or writing.

Shadow pulls out keywords from that file and anonymously sends them to its growing cloud database of dream data, so that it can identify recurring themes and trends.
Dream experiences are encrypted with 2048-bit SSL, so you don't need to worry about anyone finding out your subconscious obsession with getting your boss naked in a lake of champagne.
Since it's still a Kickstarter project — but one well on its way to being funded — the crowd gets to choose Shadow's first platform, either iOS, Android, or Windows Phone.

It's up to you to make this dream reality.
