You are more than welcome to join the growing community and take part. What we love most about Quirky is that they are promoting creative problem solving and rewarding people for it.

The lights aren’t bright enough to wake you up, but, if you are dreaming, they can appear as visual anomalies in your dreams, helping the dreamer recognize the fact that they are dreaming, and become lucid.
