THE IDEA
A recent poll conducted by the National Sleep Foundation found that around two-thirds of Americans say that their sleep needs are not being met during the week. While mostAmericans are aware that they should receive seven to nine hours of sleep per night, manydo not consider that the quality of sleep equally important. A consistent sleep routine isabsolutely crucial, according to UGA nutrition counselor Amy Ruhlen.Twenty-somethings are known for having busy schedules and consequently putting sleepon the back burner. The Sleep Foundation wrote, “Approximately half [of respondents]rarely or never get a good night’s sleep on the weekdays.” Therefore, the purpose of Rêve,which means to dream in French, is to get twenty-somethings to prioritize sleep.In order to achieve our goal, we want to gamify sleep through the concept of lucid dream-ing. A lucid dream occurs when the dreamer realizes he or she is dreaming. At this point,a dreamer can manipulate his or her dreams. The experience has been described as limit-less, exciting and insightful. Our mobile application provides helpful tools that promotelucid dreaming. However, attaining the lucid dreaming state is not guaranteed with anyapplication.With an incentive to prioritize sleep, Rêve users could improve their overall health. Stud-ies have shown that sleep has numerous beneficial effects. People who have good sleeppatterns are more productive during the day, have better metabolisms and are less likely toexperience an illness. In addition, sleep disorders and poor sleeping habits can increase aperson’s risk for chronic diseases like obesity, diabetes and heart disease.2
