Dreams can be amazing or scary, but would you want to see them on video? That could be a reality soon. According to a CNN report, independent dream researcher Daniel Oldis, along with David Schyner, the head of the Cognitive Neuroscience Lab at the University of Texas at Austin, are working to study the speech and movement patterns that happen when people are dreaming using a device called an eletromyogram (EMG), which measures the nerve impulses sent to your muscles as you snooze.
Participants also had EMG data taken as they were awake and moving around in real life, allowing researchers to compare the "awake" data to the "sleeping" data, and create movements from a person's dream using an avatar. Using similar technology they are able to do the same thing with "awake" speech, versus "sleeping" speech. The ultimate goal would be to make a kind of "movie" out of people's dreams.
