Since our start as an idea born at the prestigious University of Electronic Science and Technology of China: W/ARE has developed from a theoretical application of lucid dreaming on paper for the medical sector into a new paradigm of virtual reality for all to enjoy. The W/ARE headset is designed with comfort and clarity in mind; with adjustable straps located around the device to adapt for each user. Using medical-grade MRI sensor units, combined with a host of proprietary radio transmitters and efficient microprocessors to translate mental input: Our headset avoids the usual user eye-strain and heavy system requirements that traditional Mixed Reality devices often complain about by bypassing our physical senses altogether.
By inducing high levels of alpha brainwave activity : The W/ARE headset forgoes the need for expensive computers and gaming consoles in order to generate the high-quality visuals that players expect from modern video games. Our research has shown that the human brain alone has more than enough native processing capacity to handle the heavy lifting of displaying 3d visuals, only requiring a pass-through interface to facilitate consistent online network activity between users and connect dreamers to their favorite online worlds in unprecedented clarity.
The W/ARE headset is simple to use for both experienced gamers and novices alike. After charging the unit and securing it around their head, users simply need to lie down comfortably and rest. An oscillating combination of REM and NREM sleep states are induced by the unit’s patented electronic array that lies on the temples of the user’s head and generates nearly inaudible sounds, stimulating the frontal and temporal lobe using tACS low-level electric stimulation at 70Hz. This causes the user to lucidly deep-dive into their favorite game worlds with minimal calibration required.
Once the dream has taken hold, our engineers have masterfully crafted a set of well-tested in-sleep locomotion and interaction methods that adapt to each user’s unique psychology and preferences. Instead of spending 4 hours playing your favorite online games with clumsy motion controllers and a limited range of movement: You can spend the perceived equivalent of up to 8 hours during each session in the most realistic online environment you will ever experience! Additionally: Every new user helps add to the W/ARE processing ecosystem, providing peer-to-peer dreamscape processing assistance in order to ensure a smooth and clear experience for all users. Just by participating in your dreaming session: You act as a part of an interconnected and larger whole.
In order to maintain gameplay continuity between players and keep users safe in the case of a server connection problem: Our system automatically backs up your active memory state and proactively utilizes a predictive behavioral algorithm based on your actions, preventing perceived in-game network latency and keeping our users safe. For just under the length of a full REM sleep cycle: You too can experience a social experience like never before along with the benefit of a full night’s rest! Join humanity’s collective dream and meet new people across the world in a way unlike any other!
