WAY old technology. Back around 1990 my wife was using the same technology doing guided imagery therapy sessions in Miami. The idea wasn't new even then.

What was her experience with the technology? Does it perform as advertised? Does it perform at all?

It does work, but the effects will vary. The full routine also includes use of specially selected music and a trained therapist helping to guide the process. The lights are intended to "entrain" the brainwaves and slow them into meditative states or states simulating sleep states. It isn't a classic hypnosis, but has some similarities. If you have ever nodded off in the back of a car going under trees on a sunny day, where your eyelids are sunlit then shaded repeatedly, that is sorta the experience.

I think we still have a couple of types of the glasses and controllers around here somewhere in a box. Not sure they still work, since most of that type of stuff uses an EPROM chip and those can fail with time.

I wonder if it may help people to study while "asleep".

There are downsides to this. I'm naturally a lucid dreamer- I'm always aware when I'm dreaming. I've used similar masks because while I'm aware that I'm dreaming, I can't usually control the dream.

Well, now I'm gained the ability not to control the dream but to end it...if things are happening that I don't like, I can 'ditch out.' Trouble is, I don't wake up...I throw myself into sleep paralysis. I basically get 'stuck' between sleeping and waking...I'm awake but I can't move and feel like I'm suffocating. Worst of all, I can't seem to stop myself from ending the dream.
