Dormio : The Device that Can Capture Ideas from Your Dreams
By Mohammad Enayat

Today, I'm going to show you a cool device that can prolong and capture memories during a semi-lucid dream state. Yeah! Let's Know more about it.....

Right before we fall asleep, we pass through a semi-lucid state called hypnagogia. It's a surreal state in which you might lose your sense of self, experience a distorted sense of space and time, get lost in lucid dreams or bizarre ideas free from constraints. Geniuses through history like Edison, Tesla, Poe and Dalí have tried to channel the uninhibited creativity of the state. Some even devised a trick — holding a steel ball in their hands, which would drop as soon as they left the hypnagogia state. Awake, they could quickly jot down their impressions or ideas before they fell back asleep.

Researchers from MIT are trying a more high-tech way to replicate that process. They designed a device called Dormio intended to extend hypgnagogia and record the "microdreams" we experience in the state.

Dormio use sensors on an electronic glove to measure muscle tone, heart rate, and skin conductance to detect the shift from hypnagogia and actual sleep. Right when you're slipping into sleep, the device will send you a sound from a smartphone app, or a nearby Jibo robot, intended to bring you back to hypnagogia without fully waking you. The bot will also start talking to you, recording anything you say aloud. Throughout the night, Dormio can repeat the process to incept and report dreams.

DISNEY FORCE JACKET : A Jacket to Stimulate Physical Experiences !!
By Vishnu Shanmughan
Today i'm back with yet another intresting tech product. Disney made a jacket to simulate physical experiences, like a snake slithering across your body. Carnegie Mellon University have unveiled a new conceptual haptic “force jacket” that simulates physical experiences to people wearing the device. Let's see more about Disney Force Jacket in this thread. So let's get started with this thread.


  • The force jacket is lined with airbags controlled by a computer that inflates and deflates the bags.
  • Disney's VR 'force jacket' sends snakes wriggling over your body.
  • The jacket can deliver experiences that make you feel like a virtual object is pushing up against you.
  • The Force Jacket contains 26 inflatable compartments which can reproduce more than a dozen.
  • The researchers believe with more development the jacket could be more viable in VR use.

Disney Research, MIT Media Lab, and Carnegie Mellon University have unveiled a new conceptual haptic “force jacket” that simulates physical experiences to people wearing the device. The force jacket is lined with airbags controlled by a computer that inflates and deflates the bags. Disney envisions the jacket will be used with VR headsets for more immersive experiences, given its ability to simulate hugs, being hit or punched, and peculiarly, the sensation of a snake slithering across your body. The jacket is made up of airbags with sensors attached that direct force and vibrations to specific locations on your body.

Generation AI : A Glimpse Of The Future Generation!

By Sam_crazy

It feels so good to meet you after a long time. I'm back with one more interesting topic to discuss today which is releated to Artificial Intelligence. Probaby everyone of you knows at least something about AI. As we know , with new AI technology, developing every second, now robots are reaching into our pockets and listening to our voices. Imagine young farmers from different cities in the world are sharing knowledge on sustainable agriculture and using artificial intelligence (AI) to instantly develop best practices in future. This may sound like a pipe dream, but it is precisely the sort of resourceful and innovative thinking that will differentiate "Generation AI"— the generation born after 2010 that will only know a world with artificial intelligence — from their elders.


  • The thread is all about a small glimpse of future timeline of the next generation. It's called Generation AI as they will be in the world of AI since the beginning of their journey.
  • The next generation of children will have artificial intelligence (AI) technologies infiltrate nearly every aspect of their lives, from infancy to their golden years.
  • We're gonna talk about Generation AI,  how will it imapact in our lives, how Generation AI will be impacted by technology in each stage of life, as they grow up and balance emotional independence with technological interdependence. We'll understand that through a simple timeline. So, let's get started.
