You guys won't believe all of the things that iadr has tried in an attempt to become lucid in his dreams. At one time he had all of these strobe lights in his room that he had programmed with timers to go off every 90 minutes, which just ended up depriving him of a lot of sleep.
Then he got the idea of having alarm clocks with these rooster sounds going off every 30 minutes after about about 4 hrs 30 minutes, which also deprived him of some sleep. But changing the alarms to these coo coo sounds instead of the rooster sounds worked great, as it is just enough to slightly wake him up and allow him to start becoming lucid in his dreams...usually.
He used to have a nova dreamer, but it was also distracting, and usually ended up being on the other side of the bedroom when he'd wake up in the morning, as he'd take if off in his sleep and throw it across the room. Very disappointing and probably one of the biggest wastes of money we've ever spent, just like all of these herbs we bought that we're supposed to help us have these pleasant dreams, that we had the wife sow into this giant pillow for us, which herbs did nothing more than stink up our bedroom.
